The Best Vision is Insight

Over 35 years ago, eight adults with I/DD in San Diego county embarked on a path toward universal social equality. Today this journey has become Options For All, a non-profit organization creating opportunities for adults with I/DD in making choices to live, work, and enjoy life in their community with dignity and respect.

Since our inception in 1985, we now serve 1,500+ consumers across the state of California with more than eight innovative programs.

Services begin as a Foundation for Education Achievement (FEA) division, supporting eight adults with I/DD.

Services become a stand-alone 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
