Eric’s House became a reality a few years ago when the founder had a vision to create a place, for young adults with disabilities to go to upon the completion of school. It became very clear that transitioning out of the schooling system, and into the adult world was quite difficult for these young individuals. The options were quite limited, and the need for them only became greater - that’s when Eric’s House became a goal that needed to be achieved, and it slowly did. Our residential programming space started off with a handful of deserving clients, but as the word grew, so did the need for additional space. We became a program that families wanted to send their children to, a program that was being recognized as a great place to maximize their potential.
Eric’s House provides daily community access respite care for young adults with disabilities. We pride ourselves on giving these individuals the opportunities to integrate into society, socialize with their peers and learn daily life skills that everyone needs.
Our goal is to raise these funds so that we are able to obtain more space, so that we never have to turn a client away. These young adults are very deserving of a place that is clean, comfortable, and creative, and that is what we want to be able to give them. The funds raised will go directly to the following: our expansion space, creating an additional sensory room, developing a quiet room, and the addition of needed furniture and equipment.
