Overview

Conflict of Interest

Alta California Regional Center (ACRC) has a conflict of interest policy to assure that employees and members of the Board of Directors avoid any conflict of interest.  Laws governing the regional centers require that any potential or present conflict of interest that cannot be eliminated must be submitted to the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) with a plan that proposes mitigation measures. The DDS must follow a process as stipulated in Title 17 of the California Code of Regulations to review and approve proposed mitigation measures.

Overview

Cultural Diversity

Through annual stakeholder meetings ACRC is working to identify barriers to equitable access to services and supports among consumers and develop recommendations to help reduce disparities in purchase of service expenditures. ACRC is continuing its efforts to identify best practices to reduce disparity and promote equity.

National Core Indicator (NCI)

Data Report

The NCI program is a voluntary effort by state developmental disability agencies to track their performance using a standardized set of consumer and family/guardian surveys with nationally validated measures. The effort is coordinated by the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI).

Overview

Rights, Advocacy, and Appeals

It is the mission of Alta California Regional Center to assist persons with developmental disabilities, including infants at risk and their families by providing and securing those services and supports necessary to maximize opportunities and choices.

It is our belief that the principal test of the success of the Alta California Regional Center is the extent to which it enhances the quality of individual and family life and improves the client’s and the family’s satisfaction with the services received from or through the Regional Center.
