The Valley Therapeutic Recreation Center operates differently from the other Therapeutic Recreation Center's because it not only offers therapeutic recreation programming at its own facility, but also provides programming at Balboa Sports Center, Chatsworth Recreation Center, Northridge Recreation Center, and other communities of the San Fernando Valley. Their own building is primarily utilized for licensed Adult Care Programs, serving adults with developmental disablilities and senior citizen, however, they do serve children and teens in some of their seasonal programs and special events. It has been serving the needs of individuals with disabilities for over 25 years and currently has 16 year round programs, seasonal programs, and annual special events. All of their clients are people with mental or physical disabilities.
