Easter Seals services for veterans include employment, mental health programs, housing, and other special care services, to make reintegrating into the community easier for veterans and their families. Since 1979, the CENTURY 21® System of brokers and agents have contributed more than $106 million in total funds raised and donated directly to Easter Seals, its sole philanthropic partner, to help bolster services like these.

In addition to its longstanding partnership with Easter Seals, CENTURY 21 launched a program in 2012 called Recruiting America’s Heroes, which provides returning veterans, interested in a real estate career with benefits to make a smooth career transition. Transitioning and retired military personnel receive special training programs and continuing education courses, discounts, and waived annual global conference registration fees.
