Thank you for attending NBRC’s Open House!

We had a wonderful turnout at our Open House on Tuesday, October 25.

We had the Napa Chamber of Commerce present for our ribbon cutting and representatives from the offices Congressman Mike Thompson, Assemblymember Jim Frazier and Assemblyman Bill Dodd  make presentations.  We also had the Petaluma Pie Company attend with their employees, Chris and Emma, both of whom receive services from NBRC.

NBRC looks forward to continuing to provide high quality services to our clients at this new location!

New Location for NBRC Napa Office

NBRC’s Napa office will be moving to a new location starting June, 13, 2016. The new offices are located at 600 and 610 Airpark Road in the business park near the Napa airport. With this move being so close to the normally scheduled Annual June Board meeting– celebrating achievements made by individuals receiving services with NBRC and NBRC staff– this year the Annual celebration will instead take place July 6th from 5:00-7:00pm. But don’t be confused, our June 1st Board meeting will take place at the old offices  on 10 Executive Ct. starting at 5:00pm. NBRC seeks public input at this meeting to bring caseload ratios down to comply with state mandates. Join us June 1st.

Hiring Individuals with Disabilities Is Good Business

Employment Makes Good Sense!

Starting as a part-time dishwasher, Emma (featured on front page) quickly advanced to a full time employee, making over 100 pies a day for Petaluma Pie Company.

Husband and wife owners Lina and Angelo discovered it made sense to hire more individuals, and expanded opportunities to include work for three more NBRC young adults.

ARCA Executive Director Eileen Richey

Between March 4rth and March 12th over 400 people rallied at the state  capitol to support the Lanterman 10 Coalition and save the developmental services system. As one voice, state legislators heard the outcry for rate increases, lower caseloads, and the elimination of the Annual Family Program Fee. Read more here: Senate Subcommittee Overview

Early Intervention Expands Eligibility

Early Intervention Service Coordinator Leah Howley assesses for developmental delays.

Early Intervention Service Coordinator Leah Howley assesses for developmental delays.

With this year’s legislative change to Early Start eligibility to include infants and toddlers who are “at risk” for a developmental disability, NBRC Early Intervention Service Coordinators sharpen their assessment skills. Infants and toddlers with a significant (33%) delay in at least one developmental area OR who have a combination of two or more risk factors OR who have severe vision, hearing or orthopedic impairments are eligible.

See NBRC’s Early Start page here for more information.
