ECF and ECF Choices Services help people gain as much independence as possible. People are supported to live with their family or in the community, not in an institution.  

Employment and Community First CHOICES can help the person explore the possibility of working. Services can also help people learn skills for work, find a job, and keep a job. This could be a part-time job, a full-time job or self-employment. Working helps people earn money, learn new skills, meet new people, and play an important role in their communities. Work can also help people stay healthy and build self-confidence.
