Where adults with developmental challenges thrive.
Valley Village has over 40 years of providing programs and services for the developmentally disabled in the San Fernando Valley. Our 501(c)3 organization was founded in 1971 by parents who were seeking services for their developmentally disabled children.
Clients of Valley Village have developmental disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome, epilepsy, and cerebral palsy, in addition to many levels of significant mental retardation. Valley Village currently serves nearly 400 low-income, disabled adults in a variety of programs.
v Our residential program serves the daily living needs of over 100 clients through the operation of 15 family-style group homes, two 24-hour nursing homes and a semi-independent living program.
v Three day programs; one in Sunland and two in Winnetka, offer nearly 300 developmentally disabled clients an opportunity to learn and practice daily living skills, be provided physical, speech, and behavioral therapies, and a chance to learn and grow to reach their full potential. These programs serve a wide range of clients from those with moderate developmental disabilities to profoundly disabled and medically fragile clients.
v An after-school program allows parents of developmentally disabled clients an opportunity to work while knowing that their family members are being cared for in a loving and nurturing environment.
v A recreational program allows clients an opportunity to interact with other developmentally disabled people and with the community at large while enjoying a wide range of activities.
