Services

Overview

Services

Alta California Regional Center (ACRC) is part of a service delivery system established by the Lanterman Act that works in partnership with clients and their families, vendors who provide services, advocacy groups and state and federal agencies. 

The goal of regional center services is to provide quality services and supports that address an individuals’ unique strengths and needs and enable them to live independent, productive and satisfying lives as active members of their community.

Overview

How Services are Determined

Once a person has been assessed and is found eligible for regional center services, they are assigned a Service Coordinator (SC).  The SC contacts the client or their family to schedule a time to meet, gets to know them, and discusses their desired outcomes.  The goal is to develop a plan of support that identifies what services and supports are needed and identify who will provide the service(s).

Overview

Fees

The State of California has determined there are some circumstances in which families may be required to pay a fee or share of cost for services received through the regional centers.  

These programs are called the Family Cost Participation Program (FCPP), Annual Family Program Fee (AFPF) and the Parental Fee Program (PFP).  Most Alta California Regional Center services are provided at no charge.
