Easter Seals Endowment Fund
This fund was started in October of 2013 by Morton Community Bank and the Honegger Family. The purpose of this fund is to provide annual grants to Easter Seals Central Illinois to assist them in their mission to provide exceptional services to ensure that people with disabilities and their families have equal opportunity to live, learn, work and play in their communities in Central Illinois.
It has been more than 90 years since the roots of Easter Seals were planted in Central Illinois. What started as a once-a-week clinic in a downtown storefront in Peoria for just a few children, has blossomed into two pediatric specialty service centers and an outdoor recreational center serving thousands of children and adults with disabilities and their families every year.
Widely recognized as a place of hope and progress, Easter Seals provides a broad array of programs, services, and facilities serving people with disabilities of all ages in central Illinois.
Easter Seals provides services for children and adults with developmental delays, disabilities, autism and other special needs. Services are designed to improve functional as well as life skills.
Easter Seals is accredited by CARF International in Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Pediatric Specialty Programs and Behavioral Services for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Accreditation is official recognition that Easter Seals is guided by internationally recognized service standards and best practices.
