Regional Centers are 21 private, nonprofit organizations contracted by the State of California to coordinate lifelong services and support for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
Once an individual’s eligibility has been determined through the Intake process, service coordination and planning is initiated with the development of a person centered written plan. Services are individually determined and are provided to assist with opportunities to maximize consumers’ opportunities to live independent, productive, and satisfying lives as members of our community.
Regional Centers assist eligible consumers to apply and access other social service agencies and public benefit programs; and may provide funding for services. Some examples of services funded by Regional Center are: infant education; family support services such as respite and specialized day care; and community living arrangements such as residential care and supported living.
