Let Easter Seals Goodwill Industries be your resource for disability and other related issues. Nationwide, as many as 54 million Americans have a disability. Look around you, and you'll find people of all abilities who are vital participants in their communities despite the barriers they may encounter. Your neighbor may have an injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident or your co-worker may have a child with mental retardation. Your cousin may have cerebral palsy or a friend may have been recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis - or maybe you are one of every five Americans with a disability.
The barriers people with disabilities and other special needs face, whether physical or otherwise, begin with people's attitudes - attitudes often rooted in misinformation and misunderstanding. Easter Seals Goodwill Industries provides answers to help people create solutions, change lives, through the power of work.
