Easter Seals & Dixon Center

Soldier holding a bugleThe Partnership with Easter Seals

Easter Seals provides direct services to the military and veterans communities, proudly serving veterans since 1945. In 2005, Easter Seals recognized the new and unmet needs of tens of thousands of service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and established the Military and Veterans Initiative to more effectively and efficiently meet their needs during transition, reintegration and long-term success in life. By partnering with Easter Seals, Dixon Center leverages a well-established national network of community-based service providers and an array of trusted local leaders to better help military service members and veterans, their families and the families of the fallen.

Current Easter Seals services for the military and veterans communities include:

  • Veterans caregiver support and training.
  • Information, assistance and personalized follow-up to connect those with needs to resources.
  • Employment programs, including training for employers to facilitate recruitment, retention and success in the workplace.
  • Technical assistance to transportation providers to improve options and mobility.
  • An array of programs for community reintegration, including assistive technology, adult day services, family respite, camping and recreation and inclusive child care.
