I went to Easter seals southern california work first program for assistance when I was unable to find work after leaving the military. I met with a representative who thad me sign lots of paperwork and talked about some very basic aspects of a job search. he couldn't answer many of my questions. Instead he gave me a "research project" which i completed and email him the next day with some more questions about how I should proceed. I waited two weeks for his reply. I received an email asking me if i was working yet and had mention of my questions. he continues to check in every few weeks without meaningfully answering my questions. It seems like he is just waiting for me to get a job so he can take credit.

My son received services from Easter Seals for several years after having been diagnosed with autism. From the day that I met the people at Easter Seals until my son was ready for school, the therapists and all of the people at Easter Seals were wonderful to me and my family. They truly cared about all of us, and they worked tirelessly to find ways to help.
Even in the bleakest times, they were always there with promise and hope. The were truly marvelous as the worked with all of us. Now my son is ready for school and eager to succeed. Thank you Easter Seals.

I can't say enought about this organization and its wondeful people. When my father had a stroke the people at Easter Seals helped us understand what had happened and what was going to take place and they provide therapy that made improvements almost every day. They are truly caring and remarkable people who deserve my thanks and the support of everyone who wants to help a charity that really does what it says.
