Earl - "Back to Work"
When the economy took a turn for the worse in 2008, Earl Brown lost his job. As he looked for new work, Earl found that he had fallen into the gap of “too old to hire, too young to retire.” When he turned 55, he reached out to Easterseals Employment Services and a year and a half later, Earl is back to work; grateful to fulfill one of his #lifesmoments – Back to Work.

Elizabeth - "Bouncing Back"
When you are a person of advanced age with no job and limited job skills, you can find yourself isolated from the modern world. That’s why Elizabeth sought out Easterseals Employment Services. With the program’s help, she was able to find a job and establish a stable income to support her active lifestyle. We couldn’t be happier to have played a part in her #lifesmoments – Bouncing Back.

Walter - "Pursuing Passion"
You can’t help but smile as you see Walter’s passion for photography. Before he came to Easterseals New Jersey, his struggles with mental health stopped him from practicing his craft. After becoming part of a BHS monitored residence, Walter got back on his feet and back to work. Walter shows us that with dedication and a helping hand, you can achieve your #lifesmoments – Pursuing Passion.
