Howard Training Center was created in 1950 by a group of eight parents concerned with promoting services for area children with developmental disabilities. In 1953, the company incorporated as a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to serving adult citizens in Stanislaus County with developmental disabilities, regardless of the severity of disability.

Now known as Howard Training Center (HTC), the organization works to achieve full inclusion of individuals with disabilities in the community through the development of personal and occupational capabilities, the development and delivery of helpful programs and services and community advocacy.

For over 60 years, HTC has worked to create opportunity and supports for individuals with disabilities to hold a meaningful place in the community to the fullest extent of their abilities.

HTC’s services include:

  • Residential Programs (Home At Last)
  • Day Programs
  • Production Unlimited and Community Employment vocational training programs
  • Senior Meals Programs (Meals on Wheels) - serving over 20,000 meals each month
  • HTC Traveling Café & Catering Company
