Easterseals, the leading nonprofit serving the one in four Americans living with disabilities today, will celebrate its 100th anniversary on Monday, April 22, 2019.
To commemorate Easterseals’ centennial, the King and Queen Buildings will be illuminated in orange on the evening of Sunday, April 21.
Easterseals is the largest nonprofit health care organization in the United States, delivering services to and supporting more than 1.5 million people annually through a national network of 70 community-based affiliates, including Easterseals of North Georgia.
“This is more than simply marking an anniversary. The King and Queen Buildings in Atlanta are literally shining a light on the mission of Easterseals, which has made an indelible mark on the lives of people living with disabilities since 1919,” said Donna Davidson, president and CEO of Easterseals North Georgia. “It is also a chance to celebrate the efforts of Easterseals North Georgia, which has been working for more than 50 years to ensure that everyone in the Atlanta metro area is 100% included and 100% empowered to reach their full potential, regardless of age or ability.”
Over the past 100 years, Easterseals has changed the lives of people with disabilities through innovative services and advocacy. Its services include everything from early intervention, inclusive childcare and autism services to job training and employment services.
