Who We Are
Elwyn California, is a subsidiary of Elwyn, a premier non-profit human services organization dedicated to serving children and adults with special needs. Elwyn was founded in 1852, providing innovative services for people with developmental disabilities since its inception.
We believe that all people deserve an opportunity to build meaningful, independent lives. Individuals and families find support through Elwyn California programs to learn, work, and live as they choose and as independently as possible.

Elwyn California Vision Statement: Through partnerships with families, communities and government, Elwyn California will be the provider of choice for people with diverse challenges.
Who We Serve
Elwyn California Residential Programs: Elwyn California provides care for people with Developmental Disabilities and skilled nursing needs via a sophisticated, state of the art, alternative model of care. People live in single family homes, with individual bedrooms and all the typical "home-like" amenities, as opposed to having to live in larger congregate hospital-like settings.
Likewise, our employees enjoy a smaller, more personal and home-like working environment, as well as the opportunity to provide a very high level of quality care based upon the smaller number of residents (typically 4-5 per home) and the high staff to resident ratio.
What We Offer
We value our employees and offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes:
- Medical, Dental, Vision
- Generous PTO plan including holidays, personal, and sick days
- Employer-paid life insurance plan
- Retirement Plan (403b)
