Who We are


Our Mission Statement

Vocational Visions enhances our community by developing the talents of adults with intellectual / developmental disabilities. We create pathways to employment, life-long learning, and social inclusion.



Vocational Visions is a non-profit agency located in Mission Viejo, CA which provides vocational and life skills training and support services to adults with intellectual/developmental and other disabilities.  Vocational Visions shared a long partnership with the Saddleback Valley Unified School District since 1974 when our program began with 30 participants and a staff of five. This partnership ended as a result of California Assembly Bill AB 86 which was passed in 2013. We currently serve almost 500 participants annually and have a staff of just under 200, comprised of company employees and instructional aides.


All of our participants are identified by state agencies as requiring health and/or vocational rehabilitation.  Effective treatment increases the level of functioning for many of these men and women, thus maximizing their quality of life vocationally, economically, and socially.  At no charge to our participants, we offer a variety of comprehensive services for adults with developmental and other disabilities.


We are...
