Recent public health issues have forced us to limit our operations, including face-to-face contact in our programs. We want to assure you as a valuable donor that Easterseals Northeast Central Florida is dedicated to our local children with disabilities, their families and caregivers and our community.
We are still open and working, albeit very differently than we did even a week ago. Our primary programs are still open, and as we focus on direct care, treatment and intervention services, a decline in utilization has greatly challenged our funding.
Our clinical and early intervention services are hardest hit, with almost a 50% decline for reasons that neither we, or our most vulnerable families, have control. However, we have moved swiftly to re-invent nearly all of our service lines, such as shifting clinical services and early intervention services to tele-health and opening additional child care slots, for example. This has challenged our team and will require additional expense beyond our capacity.
Please donate so that we can continue to creatively serve and go the extra mile for our children with special needs — and the families who love them. Donate a gift of any amount today. Please share with your networks and send us a message with any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
