Our mission is to create and support opportunities for adults with disabilities and disadvantaged seniors in making choices to live, work and enjoy life with dignity and respect.

Our daughter Elizabeth has been served by Employment & Community Options (E&CO;) since July 2002. Within two days of starting, E&CO;had located suitable employment for Elizabeth with Old Navy Stores in Fashion Valley. Elizabeth has been continuously employed by Old Navy Stores since that time. The supervision she receives from her Job Coach, Carla, is nothing short of outstanding. She also receives transportation services from another E&CO;support specialist, Charlie. Charlie is very reliable and helps Elizabeth tremendously. Elizabeth, her mother and I are all very happy with E&CO;, as is evidenced by Elizabeth being there for 7 1/2 years. Keep up the great work! E&CO;is a very valued asset to the community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way it affects my daughter's life. She never wants to miss a day.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the personal attention my daughter receives from the staff.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always interested in helping their clients achieve their maximum potential.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve more clients that need help and could more appropriately compensate its employees.

Our son Michael DeGraw as been with Employment and Community Options for about six years. We couldn't be more pleased with the service he has received. This group has connected him up with Pizza Port in Solana Beach. His current job coach, Anne Donahoe, is outstanding. Besides supervising his work, she has found many other opportunities for volenteering for him. This group is a very caring and responsive organiztion. We owe them many thanks.
