E&CO seeks to create and support opportunities for adults with intellectual & developmental disabilities in making choices to live, work and enjoy life in their community with dignity and respect.
Over 32 years ago, a small program division of the Foundation for Education Achievement (FEA) embarked on a path toward creating universal social equality. This vision began with eight individuals with severe disabilities being taught vocational and independent living skills at Midway Adult Education Center. In July 2007, the FEA board granted Community Options the authority to become its own separate stand alone 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization now known as E&CO. Today, this movement has progressed into a successful organization, essential to the welfare of communities throughout four counties in California (San Diego, San Bernardino, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz ). Since its formation in 1985, E&CO’s programs and services have effectively assisted in providing jobs, life skills training and affordable housing to individuals with developmental disabilities.
