Do you have a deep passion for volunteer Board service where you can make a difference by improving the lives of others? Are you searching for philanthropic ways to give back within the community? If so, the Las Trampas Board of Directors wants to get to know you!

The Las Trampas Board of Directors is composed of caring and talented leaders who are dedicated to the organization’s mission. Our goal is to diversify our dynamic team with new voices and varied perspectives to enhance and expand our capacity as we guide Las Trampas’ strategic direction.

Who We Are - A Non Profit Supporting Adults with Developmental Disabilities

For over 60 years, Las Trampas has been a provider of choice delivering much needed services and programs to adults with developmental disabilities, including; (Autism, IDD, Down Syndrome and Asperger's Syndrome).

Founded in 1958 as a non-profit residential school by parents, family, and community members, our philosophy has always been that persons with developmental disabilities are entitled to develop their optimum state of social, physical, and mental well-being, and share an integrated lifestyle similar to what non-disabled persons are fortunate to enjoy. Currently, Las Trampas provides day program educational and vocational services, residential services, supported and independent living services throughout Contra Costa County.

We desire someone who is knowledgeable about key industry trends and can inform our Board about progressive developmental disability researchers, and practitioners, and evidence-based practices both locally and nationally so that LTI will be on the cutting edge of forward - thinking program offerings. Our goal is to be the agency of choice for individuals with developmental disabilities.
