Our Mission: To Enhance and Enrich the Lives of People with Disabilities by Employing and Empowering Them in Their Community
Unyeway, Inc. has been involved in providing community employment and day program services to adults with developmental and cognitive disabilities since 1983. The people we provide services to are referred to us by the State of California Department of Rehabilitation and the San Diego Regional Center.
Our unique name, "Unyeway", means "friend" or "friendship" and is a word given to us by the Barona Band of Mission Indians. Our programs began in 1977 under another San Diego non-profit, the MAAC Project, and were located on the Barona Indian Reservation. In 1983 Unyeway, Inc. incorporated as a separate non-profit and relocated the agency and its programs to Ramona, California. Over 30 years of successful operations has allowed Unyeway, Inc. to expand into all areas of San Diego County. Unyeway, Inc. facilities are now located in Ramona, Lakeside, Santee, and Chula Vista, California. Unyeway, Inc. provides individual placement and supported employment opportunities for people to participate in employment opportunities. Unyeway, Inc. day programs provide community based program services for people with all levels of needs, including incidental medical and behavioral services. All Unyeway, Inc. participants are supported in their individual quest for personal development, attaining independence, and reaching their goals by a professional and dedicated team of Unyeway, Inc. employees.
