Since 1960, the Work Training Center in Chico, California, has been providing training and jobs to adults with developmental disabilities. While to the outside world, it may seem like these disabilities would impede a quality product, we have created step-by-step processes that are aligned with an individual’s specific skills. Even physical limitations are taken into account by incorporating special accommodations that ensure everyone who wants to work here can do so. It is our mission to include everyone in the creation process of a quality product.
If you are interested in supporting our mission, please give us a call and put us to work.
