Las Trampas supports adults with developmental disabilities to discover their capabilities and to lead full lives in their home, at work, and in the community.

Special Legislative Session Still in Limbo

Assemblywoman Catharine Baker (Republican, District 16) was an early signee of Jim Beall’s (Democrat, District 15) bill supporting a 10% increase in funding for individuals with developmental disabilities. She commented recently, “That’s the first bill I signed, and I don’t sign on to lots of spending bills. Programs are closing in many places and we need immediate relief.” She will be touring the Las Trampas campus soon to get a first hand look at our programs.
