Easter Seals Ontario has been supporting children and youth with physical disabilities since 1922. Easter Seals assists families of kids with physical disabilities with the purchase of costly mobility equipment and communication devices. Easter Seals also owns and operates two fully accessible camp properties and is recognized as an industry leader in providing specialized recreation programs for kids with physical disabilities at Easter Seals camps. Together with our donors, community partners, and volunteers Easter Seals is able to offer programs and services to help kids with physical disabilities achieve a greater level of acceptance and independence.
Together, we make a difference for kids in the community who need our help. Easter Seals helps kids BE KIDS.
