April 2017 represented a very special time in the history of CVTC. Thirty five years prior CVTC opened its first program with a mission to open doors that had traditionally been closed to men and women with develop-mental disabilities. The mission was proven to be alive and well on April 19, 2017 when CVTC opened the doors to its second Stockton program (Stockton East). As has been the case since the early days, the mission of CVTC can only be achieved through the efforts of exceptional team members working together to address the care and safety needs of those we serve while ensuring we provide the highest quality of training possible. The Stockton East team came in ready and the positive outcomes of their efforts are already evidenced in the smiles of the participants coming through the doors every morning and waving good-bye each afternoon. Jacy and Corey (pictured above right) are two members of the exceptional team that has made the mission of CVTC a reality at Stockton East. Their smiles are an extension of every team member from the Program Director Rachel Hamilton to the Program Coordinators Maria Burks, Steven Corpus and Amanda Flores to the Instructors and every member of the CVTC team who assisted with opening this program. Everything it has taken to make Stockton East a reality is a direct result of the mission established over 3 decades ago. If you haven’t stopped by yet to meet all of us and our participants come on by. We’d love to show you around!
