Give A Hand Up
Military service often presents hardships to individuals and families. You can help by supporting Veterans Count, a program of Easterseals Maine.
Easterseals has a long tradition of helping individuals and families in need overcome challenges to live, work, play and thrive in their communities. With that same vision, Easterseals developed a unique care coordination model, which, by design, provides military and veterans with a “hand up” and not just a “hand out.” Our Care Coordinators are able to meet clients where they live and work to address their most pressing needs: these are often financial.
Accessing Veterans Count philanthropic funds, our Care Coordinators build trust through meeting urgent needs in a highly responsive manner. We are able to provide immediate assistance without the bureaucratic red tape which discourages so many service members. Once urgent care needs are met, we are able to open doors to address issues such as PTSD, homelessness, and employment. Care Coordinators are able to provide complete wrap around services and lead their clients from crisis to self-sufficiency.
Your donation will make it possible for a Veteran, current Service Member, or a family member, to turn to us for help with:
- Emergency Financial Assistance (housing, food, fuel assistance, gas, vehicle repair to name a few)
- Deployment Support
- Substance Abuse Services
- Employment Counseling
- Mental Health Support
We need your help! Veterans Count is a prestigious and truly effective means to make a profound and immediate impact in the lives of our military families.DONATE NOW
