(SVS) was founded in 1977 as a small after school program for teenagers with autism in Manhattan Beach. In the 35 years since its establishment, SVS has grown to serve over 4000 individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities throughout California. We offer a wide variety of services to meet the needs and interests of a diverse population.
Although large in scope with our 75 locations, each individual SVS program site has its own distinctive ambience. This allows each facility the opportunity to customize its activities to the interests and talents of the individuals it serves and to make use of the resources available in its community.
As SVS continues to grow, we always welcome comments and suggestions about our programs and how we might better serve our consumers and the community around us. Social Vocational Services, Inc. is a 501c (3) California not-for-profit corporation.
