About Us

The Achievement Center – Easter Seals was established in 1961 in a movement to offer quality services to individuals with disabilities. Since its beginning, the Center is a cooperative community effort among industry, Easter Seals Alabama, state and local education systems, Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services and the Veterans Administration. This cooperative effort has minimized the duplication of services and maximized the quality and quantity of services delivered to those benefiting from our assistance.

The Center is also in partnership with local area universities whereby students may fulfill practicum and internship requirements in the rehabilitation field by serving in a number of roles at the Center.

The Achievement Center – Easter Seals today operates a staff of 27 employees under the direction of Furrel Bailey, Executive Director. Mr. Bailey also reports to a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of 16 individuals who represent all counties served. Our Board members offer a wide cross-section of experiences and backgrounds from both public and private business sectors, education, law, finance, medical and community relations.
