For more than forty years, Empowering People's Independence (EPI) has provided personalized care, education, training, advocacy, and support solutions to meet the needs of people with developmental disabilities, epilepsy, and brain injury. We have an enduring legacy of partnering with those we serve and with their families.
EPI was founded by parents who could not find the services they needed for their children. With dedication, courage, and creativity, these families built a better world for their loved ones. We share our founders’ indominable drive to put first the needs and the dreams of the people we support.
With more than 900 employees, we now provide comprehensive services in over 22 counties in Upstate New York, from the Finger Lakes and Western NY, to the Southern Tier and Central New York regions.
What distinguishes EPI is our focus on offering progressive, tailored care solutions to people with developmental disabilities, epilepsy, and brain injury. We are proud of our agility in adopting innovative service models that better meet the needs of the people we support to improve their health, wellbeing, independence, and social inclusion. We are passionate about doing the right thing. We work hard to earn the trust of the people we support and their families. And we are committed to empowering people with disabilities to reach their individual goals and aspirations, and to live their lives to the fullest.
Our epilepsy services division has recently been rebranded to be the Epilepsy Alliance of West Central NY to highlight the importance of our local epilepsy programs and our work through the Epilepsy Alliance America to transform and modernize epilepsy services on a national level.
