What We Do

Easterseals Nebraska (ESN) provides exceptional services to help people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to live, learn, work and play. ESN's mission and vision is to change the way the world defines and views disability by making profound, positive differences in people’s lives every day.

For more than 90 years, Easterseals has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, and their families, live better lives. Whether helping someone improve physical mobility, return to work or simply gain greater independence for everyday living, Easterseals offers a variety of services to help people with disabilities address life's challenges and achieve personal goals.

We offer residential camps and mini-weekend camps with opportunities for personal development and independence for people with disabilities in a fun, safe, and engaging getaway, while providing a healthy break for family or caregivers.

We provides low or reduced-interest loans to qualified Nebraskans with disabilities for the purchase of equipment and services necessary for securing remote work opportunities from home or other permanent remote sites.

Nebraska AgrAbility - Helps farmers and ranchers who have sustained a disabling illness or injury overcome barriers to continue their chosen profession in agriculture.

We assists Social Security disability beneficiaries to develop individualized plans to reach self-sufficiency through full use of state and federal work incentives programs.
