ETTA, founded in 1993 in Los Angeles, California, and merged with OHEL in 2012, provides a full spectrum of services for adults with special needs. ETTA serves people with developmental disabilities and their families, and is one of the premier providers of such services on the West Coast. ETTA's services include residential housing, case management, employment training and placement, educational services and social services.
ETTA’s mission is to provide programs and services that enable people with special needs, and the families who love them, to live fully enriched and active lives as members of the Los Angeles community. ETTA's vision is an inclusive, participatory community of people, with and without special needs, succeeding and growing together.
We enable people with disabilities to achieve greater independence, autonomy and inclusion. We change mindsets, raise awareness, increase sensitivity and provide inspiration. We elevate lives and train leaders. We are a community of hope, warmth, support and expertise.
