A Letter From Scott Elliott


The past six years, ICAN has grown from a newly formed 501c3 non-profit, to year round organization with 70+ employees supporting our various programs. This year we are thrilled to be laying the foundation for our new homebase in Hermosa Beach as well as opening a new Employment site in Long Beach, expanding our services and programs to even more.


As many of you know, I started working at Hope Chapel as a young 18 year old overseeing Youth & Disability Ministries.  Over the years I’ve had the privilege to work in many departments at Hope Chapel while also supporting my wonderfully talented wife Louise with ICAN part-time. After a robust and rich 22 year tenure at Hope Chapel, I’m excited to retire and transition to working at ICAN full time. My family’s passion is to empower people with disabilities and I’m overjoyed to officially co-lead the organization full time starting this May.


We are excited for the future of ICAN. The ICAN Team has achieved and exceeded our goals and our local governmental agencies expectations. We have accomplished so much in a short period of time, but we know that there is still so much to be done.

We will be celebrating this next chapter and invite you to join us for an afternoon of games, tacos, and ice cream at Chevron Park (324 West El Segundo Blvd

El Segundo, CA  9245) on April 29th from 1PM - 4PM.

Your longtime support and commitment to ICAN has been invaluable and it would mean so much to have you there.


Thank you again for your dedication to ICAN,


Scott Elliott
