East Bay Innovations
Established in 1994, East Bay Innovations (EBI) is a private non-profit organization serving more than 700 individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities in the East Bay. The mission of EBI is to arrange and provide personalized support that enables individuals with disabilities to live in their own homes, work in jobs of their choosing, and feel a sense of membership in their community. East Bay Innovations provides an array of services including Supported Living Services, Independent Living Services, Community Day Programs, Supported Employment Services, and Transitional Care and Case Management. We strive to understand each person's hopes and aspirations as well as needs for support. We help people strive for independence when possible, and we provide assistance when independence is not possible.
We strive to understand each person’s hopes and aspirations as well as needs for support. We work in partnership with the person and their close friends and family to provide services that reflect what the individual wants. The people we serve direct their EBI services as much as they can. We help people strive for independence when possible, and we provide assistance when independence is not possible. We believe in services that are flexible and change over time as people change.
- Person-centered support
- East Bay Innovations provides person-centered support. This means that we believe in seeing people first rather than diagnostic labels, using ordinary language and images rather than professional jargon, actively searching for a person's gifts and strengths in community life, and strengthening the voice of the person in accounting their history.
