Forty Three Years of Service

Tierra del Sol Foundation began 43 years ago in Sunland, California and has grown into a recognized leader in developing innovative, accredited services enabling adults with developmental disabilities to realize their greatest human potential.  Tierra del Sol helps more than 640 people across Los Angeles County overcome cognitive, physical, emotional or behavioral challenges resulting from developmental disability.  Tierra offers a tremendous variety of educational opportunities for people to discover their own unique talents and abilities to contribute to their community and their family.  Most importantly, we believe our community is stronger when all of its members are valued and appreciated.  Through Tierra, people are supported to go to community college, to give valuable volunteer service, to create art and to build for themselves the lives that they want.
