Easter Seals Midwest
Easter Seals Midwest is a not-for-profit, registered 501(c)(3) organization that is committed to helping individuals with developmental disabilities – including autism – learn, live, work and participate in the community.
Easter Seals Midwest employs more than 1,400 staff members, operates a budget of $50 million and delivers services to more than 4,000 individuals across the state of Missouri through three specific divisions:
Easter Seals Midwest’s Autism Services strives to be a single touch point for help and hope for families impacted by autism. We serve more than 2,000 children, teens and adults with autism across Missouri annually. Training and therapy services are provided in clients’ homes as well as at the following office locations: St. Louis, Columbia, Cape Girardeau, Poplar Bluff, Springfield and Joplin.
Easter Seals Midwest’s Community Living is committed to helping individuals with developmental disabilities build skills to live independently in homes of their own and participate in the community. Staff members work in clients’ homes offering training and assistance whenever and however needed, ranging from 24 hours a day to just a few hours each month. A variety of services are provided to residents of St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County. We currently serve more than 550 individuals through Community Living.
Easter Seals Midwest’s Employment Services supports more than 1,000 individuals with developmental disabilities as they build job skills, and find and maintain competitive employment within the community. Staff members match qualified applicants with meaningful employment, and we continue to support our clients as they remain on the job with job coaching and job retention support. These services are provided to residents of St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County.
We know how difficult it can be to trust another with your most precious possession, your child. As a team, we work together to develop a plan that is customized to your child’s needs. Unlike most childhood centers, we offer the ability to care for children that require extra care due to a health related need or developmental delay such as autism spectrum disorder or cerebral palsy.
On July 1, 2014, Easter Seals Midwest expanded into the Kansas City area. Kansas City-based nonprofit, Triality, Inc., joined Easter Seals Midwest to provide a comprehensive array of services that meet the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities, including autism. The two organizations are leaders in the field known for advanced, high impact services, and are committed to helping individuals with developmental disabilities live safe, productive lives in the community.
