Easter Seals of Greater Houston

Founded in 1946, Easter Seals Greater Houston serves veterans and individuals with ALL types of disabilities, as well as their families. Through a staff of over 200 professionals, we serve more than 12,000 families annually through direct services in Houston and surrounding counties and reach over 23,000 monthly through our websites.

Veteran & Military Family Services

We are proudly serving current Service members, Veterans and their families in Harris and all surrounding counties. Our mission is to assist military families in building the lives they want after they finish their military service and to meet their needs to foster stability, reintegration, wellness, and growth. Our goal is not to duplicate services offered in the community, but rather be an easy point of entry for those who have been reticent to or had difficulty connecting to the VA or finding the resources they need.
