Nationally, Easterseals changes the way the world defines and views disability by making profound, positive differences in people’s lives every day.
Locally, Easterseals RISE carries out that purpose by helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities succeed at home, at work, and at play. Easterseals RISE offers a broad range of services including employment services, residential services, respite, and support in the community and at home.
Who We Are
Easterseals RISE helps people with disabilities become as independent as possible through personalized support services.
We are person-centered. Easterseals RISE focuses on each individual’s needs, strengths and preferences. Many activities, outings and programs have been developed in response to participant interests.
We are local. RISE has served individuals in Steuben County since 1965, and we maintain deep ties to the community. We merged with Easterseals Arc of Northeast Indiana in July 2020 to expand our resources and offerings while maintaining our local focus.
We are non-profit. We care about the individuals we serve, not shareholders, and we seek out donors and community partners to help meet needs not covered by our participants’ benefits.
