ESCA grew out of the cares and concerns of parents.  The program partners caring adults with people with developmental disabilities to provide opportunities for social relationships and inclusion within our community.   We support several group activities which provide opportunities for social, physical and intellectual development.  We can advocate for all aspects of an individual’s life responding to their specific needs and the family’s goals.
