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.

Applicants living outside the City of Sacramento but residing within the County of Sacramento may still apply for rental assistance from the SERA Program.
There are no SERA funds for City of Sacramento residents (funds are depleted)
Priority will be given to County applicants who have received an eviction notice that has been filed with the court and have met the SERA program eligibility requirements.

ACRC has been actively partnering with multi-family housing developers for several years. There are many upcoming housing projects that will include housing units for people served by ACRC. Most important is that this new housing should be affordable for people on extremely low incomes and accessible. There is a tremendous shortage of accessible housing, so this is exciting news.
There is a group of parents, advocates and organizations who are organizing to obtain housing options for people in the Alta California Regional Center catchment area. Details coming soon.
Take a look at this report done in Colorado regarding housing for people. Maybe California can work on doing a similar report. Bottom line is there is a tremendous need for more housing options people can afford and with supports, as necessary, to live a quality life.
