Alta California Regional Center (ACRC) is a private, non-profit corporation working under contract with the State of California, Department of Developmental Services, to provide services to persons, age three and above, with a developmental disability pursuant to the Lanterman Act.
ACRC also provides services to infants and toddlers, between birth and 36 months, who have a need for early intervention services and who meet the eligibility criteria for the California Early Start program.
In California, as in other states, large institutions dominated the service system for people with developmental disabilities through the first half of the 20th century. Public-funded community services were limited, and out-of-home care in large public and private institutions was typically the only service option available.
Alta California Regional Center (ACRC), like all regional centers, is funded by the state of California, specifically through the State Department of Developmental Services (DDS). ACRC is a private-nonprofit corporation which operates under an annual contract with the DDS. All of the regional center funds come from your tax dollars.
