UPDATE

When Easterseals announced the closure of their Maine offices in late 2021, members of the Maine Veterans Count chapter decided to come together to continue their fundraising efforts.  This group of dedicated volunteers who shared their time, talent, and treasure for Maine’s military families over the years wanted to ensure that no Maine Veteran ever went without critical services and support.

The former Veterans Count chapter has connected with FedCap to create Veterans Forward to ensure the highest quality statewide military and veterans services programming continues in Maine.  While Veterans Count is no longer active in Maine, please consider learning more about Veterans Forward: https://fedcapmaine.org/veteransforward/.

Closing Announcement

Easterseals Announces Maine Closure

Effective December 31, 2021, Easterseals will cease all operations in Maine. After a thorough review of our Northern New England affiliates this past year, including New Hampshire and Vermont, we have made the difficult decision to end service delivery in Maine and several other divisions. 

In exiting Maine, we are following through on a year-long strategic planning process that revealed the need to deploy resources differently for the long-term sustainability of our agency. The decision was not made lightly, as we have served Maine for over a decade. We are grateful for all of the community partners, donors, and staff who have supported us over the years.
