Easterseals NH

Easter Seals is the most comprehensive statewide nonprofit organization that provides services to children, adults, and seniors with disabilities and special needs. We are always there, meeting the most difficult challenges, creating innovative programs, and delivering critical services that benefit the entire family. We provide help, hope and answers so people with special needs can live more independent lives.

We embrace the challenge of helping people with disabilities and other special needs through our expertise in providing services and support to individuals or all ages and families. We are committed to meeting the needs of all our clients to ensure that no one falls through the cracks or is denied help.

The spirit of caring is at the heart of Easter Seals New Hampshire. It is this deeply felt desire to improve the lives of others that inspires our family of volunteers, donors, corporate friends, staff, and clients and their families as we work together to change lives.

Easter Seals New Hampshire is an innovative four-state organization including NH, VT, ME, and RI. 

In 2015, we touched the lives of more than 13,500 individuals of all ages throughout the state and provided more than 4.05 million dollars in free and reduced-price services to children and adults in need. At locations throughout the state, Easter Seals employs and contracts with nearly 1,400 people.

For more than 26 years, the National Health Council ranked Easter Seals first among its members for the percentage of program dollars spent on direct client services. Every penny raised stays in New Hampshire to benefit Granite State residents.

Every day we strive to give families hope. From birth to seniors, we are passionate about helping the people who need us most at all stages of life.
