About Us

Who We Are

ERI was founded by Brian Waddell in 1988 to help Oklahoman’s with disabilities thrive at home, in their workplace and in their communities. We started out as Employment Resources Inc. with the goal of assisting adults with disabilities looking to join the workforce.

Through growth and experience, we expanded our services to include in-home support. Our in-home support program, ERI at Home, is designed to meet the specialized needs of individuals as they work toward reaching their maximum level of independence.

ERI’s mission is to empower people to live better and more productive lives by providing community employment and residential support services that are customized to meet their individual needs
