At the core of the Easter Seals Southern Georgia organization is a common passion for caring, shared by its 225+ staff members, volunteers, donors and by those who support its mission. This heart-felt commitment to helping people with disabilities and their families is what Easter Seals is all about.
Easter Seals Southern Georgia strives to ensure the highest-quality services for children and adults with disabilities or special needs. Designed to meet each participant's individual needs, teams of therapists, teachers and other health professionals work together to help each person overcome obstacles so they may achieve personal independence and reach their own goals. Easter Seals also includes families as active members of any therapy program and offers support to families in need.
Megan's House : Megan's House is a children's respite home located in Albany, Valdosta and Waycross. These homes are the only ones of their kind south of Atlanta. Megan's House can provide respite care for children 0 - 17 years of age, who have developmental disabilities or may be considered medically fragile. Megan's House can accommodate two children at a time for up to two weeks. Respite care provided by Megan's House may be used for a crisis situation or for a scheduled break. Fees for services are determined by a sliding fee scale and scholarships may be available.
Family Support is a broad based category that serves children and adults, ages 3 and up, who have intellectual/development disabilities and autism. The goal of family support is to keep families together, until the individual with a disability chooses to live independently. Family support is designed to improve the quality of supports to families, while minimizing the need and cost of out of home placements. This program also allows families to participate in recreational and social activities, and most importantly to make a positive difference in the life of the person with a disability.
