Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission

At EP!C we enrich the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our Vision

EP!C envisions a world where people with developmental disabilities are inspired, respected, engaged in their community, and empowered to achieve their personal best and where families, guardians, and advocates receive the knowledge, resources, and support they need.

Our Values

Empowerment   |   Accountability   |   Innovation

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Every Person has a Purpose. EP!C’s greatest impact is the relationships we build with people. From our very inception, we have been trailblazers who did not allow the perception of others to define us. Disabilities do not discriminate against race, religion, gender, age, or sexual orientation, so, EP!C was created to support all people. We continue to celebrate the uniqueness and positive contributions of every person and in doing so, are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion through our programs, messaging, and hiring practices.

What We Do

We have been serving people with cognitive differences and their families since 1950 and continue to offer the highest standard of support and care. EP!C is committed to helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities at all levels to achieve their goals and live their lives to the fullest. We offer a range of programs and services to provide EP!C individuals with the educational, residential, employment, and clinical resources they need. By empowering participants to live their best life, we enrich their lives, the lives of their family members, and larger Central and Southern Illinois communities.

Educational Services: EP!C offers several different types of education at varying levels. Participants have the opportunity to engage in sensory learning, adult life skills education, work skill acquisition, gardening, and computer activities. We also offer unique extracurricular activities and clubs, including art, dance, fitness, volunteer, cooking, music, and more.

Community Living Services: Participants have multiple accommodation options with EP!C. They may choose to live in group homes of varying sizes with around-the-clock care, be more independent in an apartment setting, or be matched with a community member Provider in our Host Homes program.

Employment Services: EP!C offers a variety of employment opportunities through community and organizational employment to meet the abilities and needs of our participants. We also provide job and work skills training in preparation for employment and continuing job coaching during employment as needed.
