Etta Israel has received a $20,000 grant from the Max Factor Family Foundation in order to establish a groundbreaking new program that will provide one-to-one support services to Jewish adults with disabilities.

The grant expands Etta’s Supported Living Services (SLS) and Independent Living Services (ILS) programs. Etta is the only Jewish agency in Los Angeles with approval to provide these services, which are vendored through California’s Regional Center.

Through one-on-one coaching, SLS and ILS offer individuals with special needs the opportunity to attain life goals and dreams, exercise personal choice, achieve competence in day-to-day areas of life, and pursue participatory, dignified relationships with family, friends, and community.

As part of its “200 by 2020” plan, SLS and ILS are part of Etta’s aggressive growth plan to meet the community’s needs over the next seven years. The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020. The Max Factor Family Foundation’s grant is expected to go a long way toward reaching this goal.

Etta also provides the following services to support people with special needs: housing and residential services; job coaching; social events; a day program; a summer program; and educational programs. The vision of Etta, which merged with OHEL Children’s and Family Services last year, is to be an inclusive, participatory community of people with and without special needs – succeeding and growing together.
