About Us

VTC Enterprises is a private non- profit organization that has been providing services for youth and adults with Developmental Disabilities since 1962. Our goal is to help individuals overcome obstacles to employment and independent living and so become productive and contributing members of our community.

In 1961 a group of Santa Maria Valley parents organized to obtain services for their adult children with mental retardation. The resulting Santa Maria Association for the Retarded was incorporated in 1962 and provided life skills training, first in a small house and later in a former utilities building in Santa Maria. With 1969 came the purchase of 5 acres on ''A'' Street in Santa Maria and a new name, North Santa Barbara County Rehabilitation Center. By 1980 services had evolved to embrace increased employment opportunities for people with disabilities, and we became Vocational Training Center. In the 1990s we began offering employment services to people with mental illness, and in the early 2000s to those who are deaf/hearing impaired or blind/visually impaired. By 2001, we were no longer a center-based organization, instead operating many ''enterprising'' community-based programs and business operations throughout the Central Coast. Thus, since most of the community knew us by the acronym ''VTC'' anyway, our corporate name was changed to VTC Enterprises.

We provide employment opportunities through the quality products and services we provide. Products and services include Catering, Printing, Mailings, Trophies, Lawn Maintenance, Thrift Stores and so much more.
