Redwood Coast Regional Center (RCRC) provides a variety of services to eligible residents of Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, or Mendocino County. Although most services provided by a regional center are free of charge, the California Department of Developmental Services established the Family Cost Participation Program (FCPP) for the purpose of assessing a cost participation to parents of children who receive three specific regional center services: day care, respite, and/or camping. Additionally, the Parental Fee Program (PFP) assesses a fee to parents of children under the age of 18 who receive 24-hour out-of-home services purchased with State funds through a regional center.
In order to fulfill the diverse needs of persons from infancy to end of life, some of the services and supports provided by RCRC include:
- Information and Referral
- Assessment and Diagnosis
- Prenatal Diagnostic Services
- Early Intervention Supports and Services
- Lifelong Individualized Planning and Service Coordination
- Behavioral Supports
- Employment and Day Services
- Health and Medical Services
- Family Support
- Residential Care
When authorizing individualized services and supports to individuals and their family, the California Legislative Counsel, through the enactment of the Lanterman Developmental Disabilities Services Act and related laws, provides a set of guidelines for regional centers to follow. The RCRC Board of Directors also provides direction for service authorization through the development and approval of Purchase of Service (POS) Guidelines.
