To position the organization as a large service provider to meet the needs of a growing special needs adult community.


Founded in 1993, ETTA offers a full spectrum of services for Jewish adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including residential housing, case management, employment training and placement, educational services, and social services. With a Cutting Edge Grant in 2010, ETTA explored innovative housing solutions for Jewish special needs adults. Today over 50 special needs adults participate in ETTA's group homes and supportive living services and 120 clients receive ETTA's wraparound services. With a Next Stage Grant, ETTA will have the support to successfully navigate its transition to a large service provider and serve the growing special needs adult community.
