Easter Seals of Southern Georgia announced the opening of its new Savannah office, offering family support and respite services to four area counties, including Bryan.
Easter Seals will also continue to serve families and individuals out of the Waycross office.
The Family Support and Respite Services Program serves children and adults, ages 3 and up, who have intellectual or development disabilities and autism. The goal is to keep families together until the individual with a disability chooses to live independently. Family support is designed to improve the quality of support to families while minimizing the need and cost of out of home placements.
In addition to family support services, Easter Seals has several respite homes called Megan’s House. The respite home is for children ages
17 and younger who have developmental disabilities or autism or are medically fragile. Also, the Richmond Hill Asperger Support Group will host an Easter Seals information session at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Richmond Hill Public Library. This meeting is open to anyone interested in the Easter Seals programs and services. Contact RHAspergerGroup@aol.com for more information.
