EEDA, a grassroots agency, was organized in 1992 by a small group of parents who were active advocates for their children and believed that everyone has the right to fully participate in quality education, medical, habilitation and recreational services. To that end, EEDA secured funding to create programs of excellence that promote life enhancement for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities of all ages.
Today, EEDA provides services to over 700 individuals and continues to be managed by the same group of parents who started the organization.
