ABOUT OUR FOUNDER

Eric Goll is a family coach, independent facilitator, and brother to a sister with a developmental disability. His ‘soul’ purpose is to empower people with intellectual or developmental disabilities and their families to live happy, meaningful lives.

On a mission to help people who are devalued by society become valued contributing members, Eric works tirelessly every day to go beyond simply solving the problem of people with developmental disabilities being devalued by society.

His work at the Empowering Ability Academy is strategically designed to help those with IDDs build valued societal roles by becoming contributing family members, through gainful employment, and in getting a home of their own.

Eric has been deeply impacted by life with his sister Sarah, who has a developmental disability. Watching her become depressed with nothing to do as a young woman living in my parent’s basement, he set out to help create more for her.

Sarah was fighting to be her own person, and when she finally got Eric’s attention (after 30 years), he woke up with sheer determination to help everyone like Sarah to live awesome lives.
