Enrichment Through Employment

Assisting individuals living with mental health conditions to achieve a lifetime of successful employment.​

 

Founder

Hilda Preston

Hilda once dreamed of enabling the psychiatrically disabled to achieve a lifetime of successful employment. 

 

She had a passion for enabling ETE clients the opportunity to fulfill their personal potentials in the workplace. Starting with a desk and phone Hilda grew ETE to a non-profit corporation that has worked with hundreds of disabled individuals desiring the dignity of employment. 

 

Hilda passed November 26, 2018.  We will miss her.

It is her spirit and conviction that the psychiatrically disabled can work that inspires  ETE's staff and board today.
