Serving Vermont's Children And Families

Throughout the State of Vermont, Easterseals VT is dedicated to helping children and families. We are the leading agency in the state in working hand-in-hand with the Department for Children and Families (DCF) to find family-centered solutions to problems. Many children suffer from abuse, neglect, bullying, and insufficient help and understanding. Easterseals VT is known for finding practical, realistic solutions and helping parents understand and work with their school systems. We empower parents to teach, listen to, and understand their children’s needs more effectively. We offer direct assistance to our families to improve the situations they are dealing with.
