Tapping into Local Resources
All of California’s regional centers are required to be the “payor of last resort” for any service or support that a person with developmental disabilities might need. This means that if a service is available through another source, including “generic resources” that – like public schools – are mandated to serve the general population, the regional center is prohibited by law from paying for that service.
To help clients and parents of children with developmental disabilities access local agencies and organizations that may be able to meet their needs, Redwood Coast Regional Center has prepared these lists of community resources and general information.
