Eleana Najmy-Hall Memorial Fund


Eleana Najmy-Hall 3/10/70 – 10/14/19

It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Eleana Najmy-Hall who was one of our most beloved volunteers. Her family has asked that we set up a fund in her memory to support our work, which Eleana supported for years.

General & Program Support

Easterseals Happiness House serves children, teens, and adults with developmental disabilities including Autism, Down syndrome, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, and sensory processing disorders. In most cases, there is a gap between what insurance and/or Medicaid Waiver will cover and the actual cost of providing the services. We seek assistance from members of our community who will help us “mind the gap” so that no one falls through the cracks, losing essential and life-enriching programs and services due to lack of funding. This gap exists in each of our programs. For example, the outstanding cost for a child to attend the Lily School, our After-School Program or Summer Camp is $2,000 per year. That means we must raise $2,000 PER CHILD, per year, just to break even. Please consider donating to help us “mind the gap” in every department.
