TAKE ACTION to Ensure Veterans with Disabilities Get the Support They Need At Home - Act Now!

as shared by Easter Seals

Veterans who return home with service-connected disabilities should not have to fight to secure the government benefits they have earned or to access local supports that could assist in their reintegration. Unfortunately, newspaper headlines and research findings remind us that veterans who may need assistance during their transition continue to struggle to access this timely assistance which is critical to their reintegration.
Easter Seals supports new legislation (H.R. 1843) that would help to address this service gap for veterans with disabilities and their families by connecting to or providing supportive services that promote successful transitions into civilian life. Your voice is needed now to help grow support for H.R. 1843 in the United States House of Representatives.
You will also have the opportunity to send a 'thank you' if your Representative is among current co-sponsors.

Your assistance will help give back to American’s veterans who have honorably served and sacrificed for our nation.
