At EP!C we enrich the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
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.
For 70 years, EP!C has been supporting people with disabilities and their families. What started in 1950 as a group of families who wanted more for their children has grown to serving over 12 counties across the state of Illinois. EP!C is committed to helping individuals with disabilities at all levels achieve their goals and live their lives to the fullest. We offer a range of programs and services to provide cognitively challenged people in our communities with the educational, residential, employment and caretaking resources they need. EP!C supports people in using their skills and education to work, volunteer and support the well-being of our communities.
We are honored to have thousands of volunteer-hours each year across our many programs. We are truly grateful to those who give of their time, talent and treasure to impact the lives of our individuals. We can accommodate volunteer groups from one to 100; we have a project need that can speak to anyone!
To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Carmen McCarthy at (309) 689-3606 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit epicci.org/volunteer.
EP!C also has a strong job placement program where staff works with local employers to provide dedicated, efficient and reliable employees. Employing someone with a disability diversifies your workforce and allows the individual to live more independently. Become one of our 30+ business partners by contacting our Community Placement Coordinator, Kaitlin McVey, at email@example.com or (309) 689-3724.
