EP!C is a community of families, staff, volunteers, and community members working together to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families with unique educational, residential, employment, and care programs tailored to each individual’s abilities and needs. We began as a small, community-organized network of Peoria families in 1950 who took an innovative approach to disability by emphasizing ability over disability. We have since grown to serve more than 400 individuals of all levels of ability residing in 12 counties in Illinois from funding to finding the best program and service match.
We partner with community businesses, schools, universities, organizations, and families in a variety of ways from job placement to volunteerism. There are several ways you or your business can partner with EP!C including through Contractual Services, Job Placement, Harvest, Technology Lab, EP!Casso, and Volunteering.
