Easterseals Southern Georgia serves over 4,000 people every year in a 60-county area operating three overnight respite homes for individuals with disabilities. Respite allows families to care for other family members, perform self-care, or take a scheduled break. Respite allows families to care for their loved ones at home, instead of an institutional setting. The Senate version of the FY 2022 budget includes $1.5 million in funding for respite under the Adult Developmental Disability Services. Please support the Senate position on Respite Funding.

How a 22-year-old L.A. native became Biden’s inauguration poet

"I don’t look at my disability as a weakness." She said. "It’s made me the performer that I am and the storyteller that I strive to be.”

She became the national youth poet laureate at age 16; six years later, she read her poem at Joe Biden's and Kamala Harris' historic swearing-in.

Can you imagine having a child who will never walk, talk, or be able to care for themselves? Could you imagine living that life 24/7? Families with loved ones who have developmental disabilities, autism or may be considered medically fragile have few options when it comes to respite care. Easterseals Megan's House is a respite home created specifically as a safe haven for those families; a place where families can leave their loved one in caring hands and take a short pause from their day-to-day responsibilities.
This holiday season your support is needed now more than ever. Many of these families have been quarantined due to the COVID-19 pandemic and have not had a break in months.
Please consider making a contribution to Easterseals this Holiday Season and give the gift of HELP & HOPE to families in our community. #respitecare #HelpAndHope

Will there be a voting option for the 2020 ornament? P&G toilet paper roll might be fitting for this year 😂
There are plenty of great reasons to donate to great causes out there. Over the next few weeks we will be promoting one of those. We know it’s impossible to give to all of them. Take a couple of minutes to watch this video. “Running for Easterseals” Below is a gofundme link where donations will go directly to them. Below is a link to Easterseals website to learn more about them and their mission. Thank you for watching, giving, and sharing. More promotions to come!! #giving #givingback #easterseals #eastersealssoutherngeorgia #runningforthosewithdisabilities #fitnessforthosewithdisabilities #rememberingthosewithdisabilities #fightingforthosewithdisabilities https://www.easterseals.com/southerngeorgia/ gf.me/u/yvdbm2
