about us

"We strive to be the kind of provider that we would entrust our loved ones to"

Eaton Alliance is a community-based service provider for individuals with disabilities, offering an array of services to suit the unique needs and objectives of youth and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as traumatic brain injuries. Our services range from thoughtfully chosen group homes, to loving and safe host homes, to competent and purposeful supported living care, to enriching and amusing day and after-school programs. Each of our programs is designed to promote opportunities to:

  • make daily choices
  • work toward their own goals
  • have happy learning and leisure experiences that are aligned with their unique interests
  • contribute in consequential ways to their own living situations
  • gain psychosocial development
  • increase their participation and involvement in the community.

Parents, families, natural supports, medical providers and caseworkers are all meaningfully included on the empowering teams that provide stability, fulfillment and quality to the lives of individuals we serve. Each individual in Eaton Alliance services is offered competent care by thoroughly trained, carefully selected and uniquely talented and compassionate staff members who all share the common goal and mantra of being the kind of caregiver we would want serving our own loved ones. The result is a vast and deeply committed extension to the families of each of our individuals in care.

Eaton Alliance is funded by the Department of Services for People with Disabilities, with private pay models on request.

mission statement

We, the people of EATON Alliance, humbly desire to make a positive and indelible dent in the universe. We intend to accomplish this grandiose and ambitious endeavor by using the vehicles of love and service to others. We will make all company decisions based on a Christian concern for all men. We desire to improve and enrich the lives of each and every soul whose path we cross: ourselves, our families, our employees, our clients, and all other affiliated parties. We believe it is a privilege and a gift from Heavenly Father to live now, in tremendous and terrible times, in this great God-given country, and we intend to utilize this privilege to better all mankind and wear out our mortalities in the vineyard of service.


Eaton Alliance “came to pass” in 2004, created by two brothers, Dave and Jimmy Eaton, who were raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Both brothers relocated to Utah in their young adulthood, and at the coaxing of a dear friend of theirs who wanted better services for her autistic son, Eaton Alliance was created, with a single client in its services.

Dave was an eccentric, idealistic musician-armchair psychologist-poet and kindergarten teacher (for children with autism) and Jimmy was an effervescent, entrepreneurial and enterprising business dude.

The Eaton brothers didn’t set out to build a voluminous client roster, however, as they began experiencing awesome strides with their original client, their unique ideals and visionary methods caught the attention of the caregiving community. Before long, friends and colleagues within the industry began urging them to take on more individuals. With a resolute pledge to themselves, their one client, and to any future client who would come into their care that they would adhere faithfully to their small provider intimacy and mindset, the Eaton brothers relented, and exponential growth began.

Their chief desire was (and remains) to be a provider that they would be comfortable having their own loved one supported by. This standard included:

  • the cleanliness, aroma and condition of the home
  • the caliber and character of the staff providing care
  • the integrity and quality of the paperwork
  • the agency’s approach to behavior management (positive reinforcement— enveloped in brotherly love and clearly-defined parameters, and choices inside these parameters
  • the accessibility and frequency of communication and dialoguing between the leadership and executives
  • the appeal, meaningfulness and frequency of activities the client ventured out on with staff

In short, Eaton Alliance was striving (and still is) to envisage and actualize the highest quality provider possible, with a sustained commitment to providing an intimate, empowering and progressive environment for its clients and staff. Far from perfect, Eaton Alliance has made marked progress towards its original objectives.

So they grew (and still grow), organically and accidentally. Jimmy left the Eaton Alliance ranks for more lucrative pursuits. In 2006, Todd Thueson, the drummer in Dave’s band and all-around great guy with an accounting background, bought Jimmy’s share of Eaton Alliance. Todd brought equanimity and temperance and diplomacy and prudence to the Eaton Alliance table.

Eaton Alliance serves hundreds of individuals with myriad disabilities (although half of their consumers are on the autism spectrum). They will continue to grow and expand as long as they feel they’re maintaining their original goals and ideals of being a provider that serves individuals with disabilities at an optimal level. They will continue to strive to be the kind of provider that they would entrust their own loved ones to.
