Frequently Asked Questions for Client Services


How do I become a client of SGVTC?

You need to check and see if you are eligible for services from the Regional Center or Department of Rehabilitation. Each agency has their own intake department and you can contact them to make an appointment to see if you are eligible. You can check out Pomona Regional Center website: www.sgprc.org  or call 909-622-7722 and ask for the intake department. The Department of Rehabilitation website is: www.rehab.cahwnet.gov or call 626-856-8742.

What if I am already a client of the Regional Center or Department of Rehabilitation?

You will contact your counselor from Regional Center or Department of Rehabilitation and let them know you are interested in attending SGVTC. They will send us a referral packet and you will be contacted.

How many programs do you have?

We have several programs. The Work Activity Program, (WAP) has four different vocational areas; Production, Food Service, Environmental Services and Computer Program. In the Supported Employment Program (SEP) you can participate in a group (enclave) or individual placement in the community. To find out more about these programs, go to the home page , check under SGVTC services and click on WAP or SEP. You can also get information by calling (626)968-8479.

Will I get money for participating in these programs?

Yes, because this is a work vocational program, you will be paid for your work, twice a month.  You are expected to follow the rules in the orientation manual and SGVTC will provide vocational counseling to help you meet your goals.

Will getting paid affect my SSI?

You can contact your counselor and she/he can provide you with information and resources. We recommend that you contact the Social Security Office at (800)772-1213 for assistance.
