Housing Services

ETTA is the leading provider of housing and supportive living in the Jewish community of greater Los Angeles. ETTA is a vendor of Supported Living Services and Group Homes. In addition, ETTA’s Foundation for Supportive Living can help a family design its own customized housing arrangement. All of ETTA’s housing options (currently serving more than 40 adults) are designed to support our model of inclusion, independence, and growth. ETTA’s residential programs are safe, professional, and residents are part of ETTA’s extensive social network.

Residents are included in their community, and join together to prepare and share meals, exercise, relax, and along with professional, caring staff members, take care of their home. Residents engage in many personal choice activities, such as attending sporting events, planning holiday parties, participating in learning programs, and pursuing community-giving opportunities.

Parents and families of residents feel relieved and secure, knowing they can trust ETTA to provide the highest standard of support. One mother shared: “About one year after my son moved into the group home, we were talking about his life there. With tears brimming, he said, “Mommy, I have a good life. I love my group home.”


"My Group Home has given me the opportunity to grow, learn, and be independent."

Stevie T’s
Stevie T’s is a unique co-op style residential option in Los Angeles for women on the autism spectrum or similar — who are independent yet still require support and guidance in order to build upon the life skills they already have and achieve additional skills to help them in the future. With the assistance of a head staff person who is responsible for overseeing and coordinating the daily operations of the home, each woman is also provided individual support to grow through weekly case management meetings. Residents and families trust ETTA to maintain safety yet encourage independence and achievement.

Foundation for Supported Living

ETTA’s Foundation for Supported Living (FSL) is a vehicle for facilitating the establishment of residential options for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, such as autism and Down syndrome.

FSL provides customized, unique, and scalable opportunities for clients and donors, such as:

  • Purchasing a property site for the program
  • Retaining personal ownership of it as an investment
  • Receiving an opportunity to customize who lives in the house
  • Significant social return on investment in creating affordable housing options for people with disabilities
  • Supporting operating costs
  • Providing scholarships for needier clients

Under this program, for example, a family may purchase a home privately for an adult child or relative, and bring in ETTA, a trusted partner, to find roommates (if desired), provide disability services as well as all property management services.

Supported Living Services: These services provide choice, personalized assistance, and support to people with various intellectual and developmental disabilities such as autism and Down syndrome, who want to live in their own apartment or other independent residence.

Individuals may receive services for a few hours or up to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. SLS offer the opportunity for individuals with disabilities to attain life goals and dreams, exercise personal choice, achieve competence in day-to-day areas of life, and pursue dignified, inclusive relationships with family, friends, and the community.

ETTA’s approach to SLS is trusted, secure, personalized and community-friendly, and based on the belief that every person is able to achieve independence to the fullest extent of their potential.
