Evergreen Life Services

Evergreen Life Services (ELS) is a charitable, non-profit organization that provides a full range of professional services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). ELS was started in 1959 as a Presbyterian ministry to provide community-based services to local people with disabilities in Northwest Louisiana. Prior to that time, people with severe IDD were usually sent to state institutions. Since its beginning, ELS has expanded into eight states and now serves over 1,200 people with disabilities.  Today more than 1,000 individuals with disabilities are served in seven states.  The mission of Evergreen Life Services is to serve, provide for and champion individuals with disabilities.  The website for Evergreen Life Services is https://evergreenls.org.
