About Children’s Therapy Center:

Founded in 1993, The Northern California Children’s Therapy Center (CTC) is a nonprofit organization committed to a mission that no child should go through life with a disability that could be aided or prevented through early intervention. CTC provides multidisciplinary services including: physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and Infant Development Program. CTC serves all children aged birth through 21 years, regardless of their ability to pay. CTC is also the proud home of Help Me Grow Yolo County. CTC is a 501c3 (TIN: 68-0309705) governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of community member and parents.

CTC was founded by two therapists and 26 families who were all frustrated by the limited access to adequate therapy services due to the dismal insurance/funding support available for these services. The therapists and families realized that the traditional funding models available would not provide the intensive therapy that their children needed to learn to walk, talk, eat, learn, and care for themselves. So, they made a partnership. The therapists agreed to give the highest level of therapy to children, regardless of the limitations set forth by funding agencies. The parents agreed to donate time and help fundraise to fill the gap between available reimbursements (if any) for therapy and the actual cost of providing the service. This partnership enables children to develop to their maximum potential and has remained the heart of CTC. Currently, Children’s Therapy Center’s 29 therapists provide approximately 33,000 hours of service annually to 775 children and their families in the following counties: Yolo, Sacramento, Solano, Napa, Sutter, and Placer.
