The EP!Casso Art Program supports the exploration of art through regularly scheduled art classes and lessons. Participants create paintings, pottery, glass jewelry, decorative pieces, and more with the support and guidance of art specialists. Each student learns the Business of Art and receives a commission on each piece that sells.

The EP!C Harvest program empowers individuals with disabilities in vocational, life, and social skills; enhanced self-sufficiency and independence; improved self-esteem; and a sense of pride and accomplishment in providing fresh, local produce to their community. In addition to produce, EP!C Harvest also cultivates seasonal flowers and plants.

Host Homes Lunch & Learn @ Your own space
May 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Work from home with EP!C.

For 35 years, EP!C (Empowering People. Inspiring Capabilities) has been a leader in providing natural living options for people with disabilities through our Host Homes program, and we are excited to share more about the opportunities available to you to empower people and inspire capabilities. 

EP!C is working to recruit Host Homes Providers that will make a difference in someone’s life through opening their heart and home to someone with a disability. Providers come from a wide range of backgrounds- ranging from teachers, nurses, CNAs, bus drivers, DSP’s from other agencies, and retirees. Whatever your current employment situation, you can continue working while earning a supplemental stream of income.

Being a Host Homes Provider offers job security, referral bonuses, 20 hours of monthly relief, 14 paid vacation days per year, and 24-hour support. The best part? EP!C provides all of the training and resources you will need to become a confident and successful Provider, and you can get started from the comfort of your own home!

Join us for a virtual Lunch and Learn via Zoom to learn more about the program and how you can become a Host Homes Provider with EP!C, or how someone with a disability can be placed in a Host Home.

Come with questions- we’d love to answer! To register, please email Hilary at
