Mission: Founded in 1985, we provide employment and independent living services to individuals with disabilities.

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.

Hi, my daughter, Megan, is more involved than I but she tells me how, why, what the company is doing to help challenged individuals. I'm involved with a woman at our church and she is a great person, because she is in a program that helps her not hinders her and that is what E&CO;does. I've attended some of your fund raisers; they've been welcoming and a lot of fun. I'll continue to help where I can. Laura Stephens
