There are currently 185,000 Central Texans living with a disability — whether they were born with one or developed one through an accident or illness. Easterseals Central Texas works to make sure that these individuals have access to services and resources they need to live, play and contribute in the community. For more than 78 years, Easterseals Central Texas has supported our local friends, family members and neighbors to live to their fullest potential.

Local businesses and restaurants are teaming up to offer special promotions, and in addition, everyone’s invited to the big annual fundraiser — a family-friendly Día de los Muertos Concert featuring Groupo Fantasmo.
