About this organization







The mission of St. Madeleine Sophie's Center (SMSC) is to educate and empower individuals with intellectual developmental disabilities (I/DD) to realize their full potential. Founded in 1966, SMSC is a licensed, vocational day training center that annually serves over 400 adults with I/DD (i.e. autism, Down syndrome, epilepsy, cerebral palsy) who represent a full spectrum of socio-economic, religious, ethnic, racial and cultural backgrounds. SMSC serves individuals with I/DD through nationally recognized innovative programs. We combine our culture of care and creativity within quality programs to provide liberal arts education, practical skills development, employment, and dignity for a lifetime. At SMSC, adult students learn and grow, earn modest income and enjoy friendships and social activities throughout their lifetimes - from recent high school graduate to senior citizen (age 22 to 70+). SMSC's programs are offered on a staff-to-student ratio of 1:3 to 1:6 depending on the needs of the individual. They include: Adaptive Computer Lab; Behavior Modification; Organic Garden; Work Activity Program; Aquatics; Culinary Arts; Aerobics/Fitness/Yoga; Dance; Sophie's Gallery; Music Therapy; Reading; Speech Therapy/Sign Language; and a Senior Program for students age 50+. SMSC operates two sites: (1) its 5-acre main campus on the outskirts of the City of El Cajon; (2) its Sophie's Gallery and Gift Shop which occupies a 4,400 sq. ft. storefront with art exhibition and studio space in Downtown El Cajon's revitalization district;.
