The Easter Seals Goodwill Industries directly helps people in our community of Greater New Haven, CT! Our mission is to enhance employment, educational, social and recreational opportunities for people with disabilities and other challenges.

Our Programs:

Community Employment Services: Provides work opportunites at a variety of community-based locations for small groups of adults with disabilities who are unable to maintain employment without full-time and/or long-term support. 

Individual Employment Services: Offers a variety of pre-employment, job development and post-employment services to maximize a successful job match and job retention for individuals with challenges to obtaining or maintaining employment.

Community Re-entry Services: Helps people who have a history with the Department of Corrections to obtain and retain employment through life skills development such as resume writing, interviewing skills, and building a support system they will need to be successful. 

Family Learning Center: After school program that helps at-risk children in grades K-8 acheive academic success through social and recreational activities.

Youth As Leaders: Promotes leadership development, creative exploration, community service and relevant life skills for middle school aged children. 

Family First Initiative: Focuses on helping families increase their household incomes and assets through employment development, work supports, savings accounts and financial planning courses, and other asset-building measures.

Senior People Involved in Community Enrichment (SPICE): Offers retirement options for aging individuals with disabilities who transition from work to retirement. Members participate in volunteer activities, visit local senior centers, and have an active calendar of events.
