In 1950, the Rehabilitation Institute of Southern California began providing therapy to children with disabilities. The location was a farmhouse surrounded by avocado fields in the City of Orange. Since then, we have expanded our abilities to embrace and uplift all people—from infants to seniors—with unique needs.
In 2020, our 70th year, Reimagine offers an array of specialized therapies, enrichment services, independent living support and more; with the purpose of enabling all participants to live an enhanced quality of life.
Our mission is to relentlessly pursue possibilities throughout the lifespan of every person with disabilities.
Our vision is to create a world in which all people with disabilities have equal opportunities to thrive in healthy, inclusive communities.
