The Easter Seals’ Veteran Staffing Network of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia brought together The American Legion and other organizations for a signing ceremony, Feb. 27, at the Fairfax, Va., County Chamber of Commerce to announce an expansion of employment opportunities for disabled veterans.

During the event, the U.S. Army Reserve, AMVETS, Hiring Our Heroes and the Military Spouse Employment Partnership were also on hand to sign agreements with Easter Seals. For more than 75 years, Easter Seals of the Washington metropolitan area has provided services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.

Services are delivered through a network of 14 sites in the region where participants and their families find support, hope, medical care and enjoyable activities. In addition to serving the overall community, Easter Seals also places emphasis on the unique needs of wounded warriors, veterans, active-duty military members and their families.

“Last year, The Veteran Staffing Network (VSN) placed 300 veterans, Guard and reservists and military spouses in meaningful civilian careers,” said Phil Panzarella, president of CPS Professional Services, chairman of the board for the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, and board member for Easter Seals.
