Alta California Regional Center is a non-profit organization, and we are funded by the state of California and governed by DDS (Department of Developmental Services). We provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities, and some of the qualifying diagnoses include autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, and even traumatic brain injury (TBI) as long as it occurred prior to the age of 18. The regional center serves as a middle man between our clients and the services. Our employees don't provide direct services, meaning they aren't with clients on a day-to-day basis, but rather help them navigate and obtain the services that are available to them in the community.
Alta's mission is to create partnerships to support all eligible individuals with developmental disabilities, children at risk, and their families in choosing services and supports through individual lifelong planning as a means to achieve healthy and productive lives in their own communities.
Alta's vision is to create a community where individuals with developmental disabilities are valued members who are treated with dignity and respect.
