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.

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.
