Our Story

SDS was founded in 1981 to address the growing need for a community-

based organization to develop and implement a full continuum of functional

skill development, employment placement, and job training services for

persons with disabilities in Solano County. Since that time, the organization’

s growth has been steady, with the first wages paid to program participants

in 1983.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding began in 1983 and

continued for 10 subsequent years. SDS received Department of

Rehabilitation certification in 1986. A 1987 grant from the Office of Special

Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) enabled SDS to initiate

supported employment services.

In 1991, SDS broadened its scope to begin serving people with psychiatric

disabilities.

United Way Partnership status was obtained in 1993 and SDS’s first three-

year accreditation for supported employment was awarded through the

Rehabilitation Accreditation

Commission (CARF).

During SDS’s three decades of service, the organization has succeeded in

developing a comprehensive range of support services to ensure that

individuals with disabilities can access the necessary resources to live

more independently.

As Solano County has experienced dramatic business growth throughout

the past 35 years, SDS has made a remarkable contribution to this growing

sector.

Since its inception, the organization has placed individuals in a range of

employment positions within numerous retail, fast food and restaurant,

janitorial, grocery, recycling, and landscape and maintenance business

sectors. Employment opportunities have also been provided to individuals

participating in SDS’s Day Training Programs in Vallejo and Fairfield.
