About the Rainbow Connection
The Society was organized in 1950, under the name Tuscarawas Society for Crippled Children & Adults. Relying on dedicated volunteers, the society tried to fill the gaps existing in community services by providing a diversified range of services. Although the society was associated with Easter Seals since its beginning, they did not begin using the name until 1981, when they became known as the Tuscarawas Easter Seal Society. In September 1992, the local society found it necessary to leave the Easter Seal unbrella to enable them to continue their mission serving the people of Tuscarawas County. The Tuscarawas Society for Children & Adults will continue to provide direct aid to county residents through their unique programs and services.
