Looking for Housing


Where an adult with a developmental disability lives varies from person to person depending on factors such as the desire and skill level of the individual, and what is common in the family’s culture.

Alta California Regional Center (ACRC) assists you in the development of an Individualized Program Plan (IPP). The IPP includes the use of community resources to meet identified needs. The planning process for the IPP includes gathering information to determine your life goals, capabilities and strengths, preferences, barriers, and concerns or problems. Contact your assigned service coordinator to express interest in exploring different living options.
