Employment is a key factor to independence. We work with adults with disabilities to help them find and maintain careers. We also work with our nation’s veterans by helping them reintegrate into the communities they left behind when they served our country.
Richard is a veteran with a service-related disability; he used our services to help find employment as a veteran service officer where he now assists other veterans with benefits and employment.
“Easterseals Crossroads is a great resource for veterans. They encouraged me and they provided guidance that led me down a path that was beneficial,” said Richard.
“Working gives us all purpose and a sense of being able to contribute to the community, as well as value and self worth. The fact that there are entities out there like Easterseals Crossroads who are trying to help with employment is a huge encouragement because it is so easy to become discouraged in the process of looking for a job,” said Richard.
Easterseals Crossroads helps veterans thrive by providing services designed to meet individual needs. Employment can be a critical step toward independence and we are committed to serving veterans through direct service, outreach, partnerships and collaboration to provide the best opportunities for success.
