The staff at Las Trampas works with developmentally disabled adults to realize their potential and provide the needed support so that they can live fulfilling and productive lives in the community. Originally founded in 1958 as a nonprofit residential school for the developmentally disabled, its mission has shifted as those original children grew into adulthood and special needs youth were mainstreamed. Las Trampas now provides weekday educational and vocational services at a variety of locations including a 3-acre campus in Lafayette, 5 residential homes, and supported and independent living services throughout the communities of Lafayette, Concord, Pleasant Hill, and Walnut Creek.
The staff’s philosophy is to help each person develop to their optimal state of social, physical and mental health so that they can realize a life that is similar to and integrated with those not faced with disabilities. It is a challenging and rewarding endeavor to enable people to participate in the broader community. It also takes significant resources to provide the care and training needed to accomplish that goal. A growing demand for expanded services has led to Las Trampas launching a 2016 capital initiative to create a state-of-the-art new facility on campus.
