Mission Statement

The mission of Santa Cruz Training Programs, Inc. (SCTP) is to provide the necessary training, care, and support for people with disabilities, by working in partnership with others in our community.

Our vision is pictured here by a fun barn dance and fundraiser held in honor of our members.
