Act for Easterseals Crossroads by volunteering to make a difference. Our volunteers are critical to our ability to provide services for the many men, women and children in our community who have disabilities or special needs.
Our volunteers help care for children with special needs in our evening respite program, summer day camps and other enrichment programs. They work with adults with disabilities in our Adult Day Services and Employment programs. They rebuild donated computers that are given to individuals with disabilities and special needs. They help at special events and third-party fundraisers. Each and every one of our volunteers makes a difference in the way we are able to serve our consumers.
Please note that Easterseals Crossroads does not accept court-ordered volunteers.
Crossroads Guild is a group of volunteers who have been working in support of children with special needs at Easterseals Crossroads since 1955.
The Guild members are volunteer assistants in respite, enrichment and other specialty programs. They help staff therapists who need assistance with children with special needs and other staff members in support programs. They enjoy monthly social and informational meetings, and they participate in fundraising projects.
