Be a part of Easterseals Eastern Pennsylvania's recipe for success and help us reach our $80,000 fundraising goal before March 15, 2023!
In April I will be celebrating my 5 year anniversary with Easterseals. I started out in the Rec/Respite Program, became a Camp Director, and then began my journey as the Community Supports Program Scheduler/Special Programs Manager for Berks and Lehigh. I am very passionate about the Consumers that I serve. Through the years I have watched them become empowered with self-confidence while giving their all by volunteering at local businesses and organizations. These interactions assisted our Consumers with increasing their interpersonal communication techniques, providing opportunities to learn job skills, and to become active participants in the Communities in which they reside. Many of our Consumers have hobbies and interests such as: arts and crafts, cooking, dance, exercising, yoga, etc. I would love to see our Consumers have the opportunity to take part in these activities, but we need your help. Please consider supporting our mission. These Consumers give so much to the Community and bring so many of us such joy, it would be a great way to acknowledge their hard work and dedication. Any contribution can and will make a difference; and the smile that you will receive as a “thank you” for your donation will melt your heart. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Harrison is a bright and friendly child diagnosed with autism. His relationship with Easterseals began through the Early Intervention program. Both of his parents work in the education field and they wanted to make sure Harrison would be prepared for the demands of school. So just prior to the start of kindergarten, they initiated outpatient services for both speech-language and occupational therapy.
