Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Easter Seals Connecticut, doing business as Easter Seals Coastal Fairfield County, is reaching out and touching more lives than ever!

Our Mission: To provide exceptional services to ensure that kids and adults with special needs and disabilities, and their families, have every opportunity to live, work, grow and play in their communities! 

This is how we do it!

Easter Seals Camp Hemlocks (Hebron, CT): Sleep-away summer camp is a part of childhood for so many, but for kids with disabilities, the challenges that come with a mainstream camp are oftentimes insurmountable for individuals who have special needs. Camp Hemlocks has been a barrier-free oasis located on Jones Pond in Hebron, CT, for over 37 years.  The camp, which caters to individuals with autism, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, and other special needs, runs 1-2 week sessions throughout the summer. This is a place where kids and adults break down barriers, make life-long freinds, gain independence, and have life changing experiences and adventures in a safe environment. We can offer a 1:1 camper-counselor ratio and every element of the camp (from hiking trails to boating and climbing) is fully accessible. It really is a special place. Words can hardly do it justice, so check out our video!

Autism and Developmental Disabilities Center (Stamford, CT): With the incidence rate of autism rising faster than ever, Easter Seals knew that exceptional services in diagnosis and treatment are critical for our community. Located in Stamford, the Autism Center opened its doors in December 2012. Under the direction of Dr. Tom Zwicker, Ph.D., BCB-A (and parent!), the Center provides diagnostic evaluation services through the Yale Child Study Center, home-based ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) services, seminars for parents and professionals, advocacy and more! Our goal at the center is early intervention followed by comprehensive treatment during critical developmental stages. What does this mean? Improvement. In some cases, children even lose their autism diagnosis.

Fundraising: Easter Seals CFC has a number of fundraising events throughout the year that both support our programs AND raise awareness! For more information about 'Walk With Me', The Caregiver Appreciation Project, the Easter Seals Golf Tournament, and ARTober Fest, check out our website!
