How It Began
In June 2006, Vocational Visions teamed with the Saddleback Valley Unified School District to offer a new and exciting Clubhouse program. Since inception, the mission of the Clubhouse continues to be providing entertainment and fun-filled opportunities for socialization and relaxation. We encourage parents, family members, Board members, friends and all interested in us to join in the fun by volunteering at Clubhouse on Fridays and Saturdays.
For more information and applications to join please contact our Clubhouse Supervisor Melody Downey at (949) 837-7280 ext. 327.
