We are pleased to announce the merger of Prospect with Easterseals Tennessee, effective March 1, 2022.

While still focusing on local member needs and efforts, this new partnership will allow us to better position ourselves for growth and offering additional local services within our industry’s changing environment. Though our legal name will be Easterseals Tennessee, we will keep the brand Prospect to the community that has entrusted us.

We are very excited about future opportunities and the addition of services that will be afforded to us with this union. We will continue to provide the same quality care and support to individuals with an intellectual and/or developmental disability; as well as continue to break through any barriers keeping them from their goals and dreams. In addition, with this expansion, we will also begin offering much needed behavioral health support to school aged children in our community, allowing us to serve a population that we had been missing.

For over 55 years, Prospect has proudly served our community. We remain committed to continuing to provide exceptional service and programming to those we support. Our mission to promote independence and provide support and encouragement to those with a disability has never been stronger.
