Who We Are

ETTA, founded in 1993 in Los Angeles, California, is the only organization in Los Angeles that provides a full spectrum of services for Jewish adults with special needs.  ETTA serves people with developmental disabilities and their families, and is one of the premier providers of such services on the West Coast.  ETTA provides a full spectrum of services including residential housing, case management, employment training and placement, educational services and social services. ETTA’s mission is to provide programs and services that enable people with special needs, and the families who love them, to live fully enriched and active lives as members of the Los Angeles community.  We enable people with disabilities to achieve greater independence, autonomy and inclusion. We change mindsets, raise awareness, increase sensitivity and provide inspiration.  We elevate lives and train leaders.  We are a community of hope, warmth, support and expertise.

Welcome to the ETTA family.

We are pleased to announce that as of October 2012, the ETTA Israel Center has merged with OHEL Children’s and Family Services. OHEL and ETTA share the mission of elevating the lives of individuals and families in need and integrating those challenged by disability. Read more about the merger here.
