Why Walk?

1 in 6 babies born in the U.S. has a developmental delay or disability

Chances are you, your neighbor, friend or co-worker has a personal connection with someone who is struggling with a disability, and they need you to help guide them through. Your participation in Walk With Me will help ensure people with all types of disabilities have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in our community. Through Early Childhood Intervention, camps, education, therapy, training, technoloy and many more support services, Easter Seals provides help, hope, and answers to over 11,000 families living with disabilities in the Greater Houston area each year. Your support makes this possible. Join Easter Seals in providing help, hope & answers!


Your support provides hope for children like Owen

Owen is two years old and has been diagnosed with a global developmental delay. At eight months old, Owen and his family joined Easter Seals’ Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) program. Although he is not able to speak, he has made great progress and kept a smile on his face. He has a wonderful sense of humor, a laugh that is contagious and shows his love with warm hugs and kisses. Owen has an amazing team of therapists who have been there to push him to be his best and celebrate every milestone.  The ECI team has been wonderful in not only working with Owen, but his entire support system – parents, sisters, and teachers at school – in developing ways to motivate Owen to reach his milestones. 

As so many others were in the Houston area, Owen and his family were effected by Hurricane Harvey, actually being rescued by boat from the flood waters in their Kingwood home.  In the aftermath, the ECI team did not miss a beat and did everything possible to make sure there was no disruption in Owen’s services.  Owen and his family continue to celebrate daily and weekly milestones that are undoubtedly, in no small part, made possible by the support of the Easter Seals team.

Your provision helps families like Owen's overcome the daily challenges that come along with having a disability. You provide hope for their future. You are the key to their success.
