Mission: Founded in 1985, we provide employment and independent living services to individuals with disabilities. We envision a society that embraces all its members as full partners in their community. Our goal is to assist individuals to become productive tax paying citizens. 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. For 23 years, we were a division of the Foundation for Educational Achievement under the name of Community Options. Effective March 1, 2008 we became a free standing non-profit organization named Employment & Community Options.

Working with Employment and Community Options has given me a chance to help others become more independent and sociable. It gives me great pleasure to go to work because I know I will be able to make a difference in the individuals that I work with every day. The people I work with are happy to be in the community and when they have a chance to volunteer they tell me how much they like to work.
