I have been involved as a volunteer and donor for over 40 years. I have seen first hand how effective Easter Seals is in making is possible for people - adults and children - with disabilities to achieve their potentials. Their programs are efficient, effective and greatly appreciated by the families they serve. I believe that this rating system that does not really reflect the quality of the services provided.
