Summer House, Inc. is an independent non-profit organization that supports adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout Yolo County California. Summer House Inc. was founded in 1973 by people with concerns for the well-being and rights of people with developmental disabilities.
They realized that some people would need services for their entire lives and organized the Summer House programs in a way that they thought would best ensure a lifetime of support.
Today our four residential based programs support, empower, and enrich the lives of people with disabilities.
