Our Creed:
We pledge to serve those who serve our nation with honor, integrity, and rapid response. We will always put our mission first. We will never give up. We will never quit. We will do whatever it takes to meet the critical needs of veterans, service members, and their families. We respect and appreciate the pledge they have made to serve. Because of their commitment, we pledge to uphold these values in our service to them.

Our Mission:
Easter Seals  Massachusetts Military & Veterans Services, in partnership with Veterans Count, responds rapidly, efficiently and effectively to the unmet needs of veterans, service members, and their families to ensure that they can thrive in their communities. We privately fund unmet needs through grants and donations but also ensure that Veterans are fully supported and have access to the Federal, State, and Local benefits they deserve, so no one is left behind.

Who We Serve:
We serve veterans and their families within the Central Massachusetts region.

Our Unique Approach:
We developed a one-of-a-kind program that provides, free, confidential, and tailored support designed to meet the unique needs of Veterans, Military Members, and their families. The program works in conjunction with existing military, VA and community programs, and is an important part of the full range of service member/family support services available to you and your family.  Many veterans aren’t even aware of the services they qualify for, in which veteran benefits are one of the most overwhelming and confusing spaces to navigate.

Services are coordinated by an experienced and dedicated veteran, Adam Costello.  He is familiar with a wide range of programs and services and is an expert at navigating “the system.” He understands military culture, employment challenges, substance abuse struggles, and deployment-related issues. Aside from short-term and direct services, our veterans program coordinator also focuses on assisting individuals and their families achieve stability and sustainable success through positive individual and group experiences.

We give a hand up rather than a handout, in which our program coordinator is genuine and passionate in his approach to not just helping veterans with their immediate needs, but motivating them to create sustainable success plans for individual challenges.  Our Veteran’s program coordinator, Adam Costello, schedules monthly follow-ups with program participants so that Veterans feel consistent support and maintain long-term success.

We are one of Massachusetts oldest non-profits bringing 75 years of commitment and passion to unmet needs of various populations.  We are honored to serve you!
