About us

Ethos was founded in 1973 by a grassroots coalition of community activists and social service providers. Their pioneering vision was to create an alternative to prevailing institutional models of care, which they believed robbed the elderly and disabled of their autonomy and disconnected them from social and community life. We have a proud track record of developing programs and services that are welcoming, inclusive and culturally appropriate. Many of our early pilot programs are now standard offerings across the nation. Ethos owes much of its success to a robust set of collaborations we have developed over the years with other institutions and organizations.
