Letter from our Executive Director on the New Building Project
Greetings from Las Trampas,
It’s still almost a daily update on COVID-19 changes taking place, even though we are nearly 19 months into the pandemic. This past June, we resumed limited in-person services at our Adult Development Program. The individuals we serve were so excited to be back; since that time we have unfortunately had to suspend in-person services on two occasions due to COVID-19.
The pandemic is also creating delays for us in the construction of our new building. In the beginning, our project site had to close down due to the onset of COVID-19 and health department mandates. This shutdown lasted for several weeks, putting us behind on our construction schedule. Since then, we have experienced some cases of COVID-19 causing additional delays to the project.
Today, we face delays in receiving much-needed supplies for the completion of the project. You may have experienced delays in the supply chain for many products yourself. If you have recently purchased an appliance or even a piece of furniture, you know that not only have the costs increased dramatically, but the delays can now be measured in months rather than days or weeks.
At this time, we are anticipating a completion date for our new building to be mid-January of which we will need an additional month to prepare the site for services. Of course, this timeline is tentative, barring any further delays on the essential components of our project. To keep up to date on the progress of the project, including changes in our schedule, please join us each month for our virtual tours.
I want to sincerely thank everyone in our community for continuing to support our project and helping us create new opportunities and choices for the individuals we serve. Your donations and support are invaluable to Las Trampas and the individuals we serve!
Paving The Way To Las Trampas
After years of dreaming of expanding Las Trampas programs and services to more members of our community, the dream is now in reach. With the opening of our new facility, we will serve 70% more individuals, those who have been on a long waitlist just hoping to receive services. For them and their families, this is now a reality.
With your donations and other community support, we are now only $300,000 away from meeting our $12.9MIL budget. By purchasing a specially engraved paver, you are helping Las Trampas reach our goal and provide much-needed services for even more of our neighbors.

Las Trampas would like to thank our donors and foundations who have supported us in our endeavor to make our state-of-the-art campus a reality. Without you, this would not happen!
Potential completion date: Early 2022, due to material delays.

The REACH Beyond Campaign
The REACH Beyond Campaign began as a dream with a vision. It was apparent the 1960 buildings on the Las Trampas Campus in Lafayette, CA could no longer serve the needs of the individuals we serve.
Designed to serve children, with no current-day accommodations for those who are non-ambulatory the time had come to replace the buildings. Today, the state-of-the-art facility designed to better serve the adults who attend the programs also allows them to be fully independent if they chose.
Through the generosity of our loyal supporters and foundations, we are nearing the finish line. Our campus project with a total cost of $12.9 MIL. Potential completion date: Early 2022, due to material delays.
We have a few short months to raise the needed $386,000 to complete the project. Will you help the individuals we serve make it to the finish line?
If you would like to be a part of the REACH Beyond Campaign, please contact Daniel Hogue at: 925-310-2373 or REACH@lastrampas.org.
