Founded in 1988, Eastern Community Development Corporation is dedicated to building, strengthening and improving lifestyles for people of all abilities.
Utilizing our comprehensive programming option such as community residential settings, vocational, day treatment, habilitation at home and in home support services, innovative designs for daily living can become a reality for all program participants.
WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY PERSON IS CAPABLE OF GROWTH REGARDLESS OF INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGES.
Community based settings are only one step of many for the inclusion of the people we serve into the community. We provide support so that individuals may have choices, make decisions, and take responsibility for such decisions throughout each day. The people who receive our support have made significant progress in their lives. This includes many people with developmental challenges including behavioral and mental health needs.
We strive to create an array of supports, housing options, training, and services that are custom fit to a persons needs and desires. This system supports people in defining their own needs, preferences, and transitions in many areas including lifestyle, leisure, work, home, relationships, personal goals, and daily routine.
At ECDC it is our goal to foster multi-faceted community interactions to help people overcome the commonly experienced barriers of isolation and exclusion that hinder true community membership.
We are committed in assisting people to discover their gifts, uncover hidden potentials, and to establish valued rolls within their communities.
