Easterseals Midwest is a not-for-profit, registered 501 (c)(3) organization that is committed to changing
the way the world views and defines disability by making positive, profound differences in people's lives every day.
Easterseals Midwest employs more than 1,400 staff members, operates a budget of $50 million and delivers services to more than 4,000 individuals statewide through four specific divisions:
Easterseals 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.
Easterseals 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.
Easterseals 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.
