COMMUNITY PARTNERSVilla is lucky to collaborate with amazing community partners that provide a wide variety of services to the developmentally disabled and others in need.
Coalition of Service Providers
The Coalition of Service Providers was co-founded by Villa CEO Kelly White and CEO of New Horizons, Cynthia Sewell. The coalition includes 16 organizations who are collectively responsible for residential and day services for more than 15 thousand people with developmental disabilities each day. The purpose of the coalition is to to actively engage, and remain visible, to Governor Brown and all state legislators in defending services that people with developmental disabilities and their families depend upon. The Coalition believes that uniting under one umbrella will strengthen the voices of individuals with developmental disabilities, a vulnerable population often unheard and overlooked.
