Far Northern Regional Center Fire Relief Fund

Our hearts are hurting for our state and those who have been tragically impacted by the many wildfires burning in both Northern and Southern California.

We are especially saddened by the losses experienced by  Far Northern Regional Center… their catchment area covers Paradise, California where the devastating Camp Fire is still burning.  The good news is that they have not had any loss of life with persons served, but there have been many, many other sad and significant losses.

If you would like to help directly support the people served by FNRC in the recovery process, we are sharing their GoFundMe page:

Public Meeting to Review 2019 Performance Plan


Wed, September 5, 2018

 5-7 pm

Board Room

North Bay Regional Center 610 Airpark Way

Napa, CA 94558


North Bay Regional Center wants to make sure that we are continuously improving. We strive to exceed our mission, desired outcomes, and that we are in compliance with all requirements.


The NBRC Performance Plan measures our ongoing performance on desired statewide outcomes, and compares North Bay Regional Center’s performance with the statewide average for all 21 regional centers in California. These desired outcomes reflect the state’s public policy direction for developmental services in the community.


We continue to fulfill all planned activities with the intent of improving outcomes as directed by our community members, Board of Directors, and NBRC staff.


How do we implement this plan?

We are continuing activities from this year and prior years, such as the continued development of licensed homes, day activities, family support and training and more in 2018/19, such as:


  • Support for clients to move from State Developmental Centers to homes in the community
  • Support for children to live with families (their own family, foster family, or with a guardian)
  • Support for adults to live in home environments (in their own home with or without supported living services as needed, with their family)
  • Coordination of employment preparation and training, job development, and ongoing support for adults to find and maintain


You are invited to hear a presentation of our proposed plan and provide your input. We will present the plan and listen to your comments during the Public Meeting of the NBRC Board of Directors on September 5, 2018.

June 27, 2018 – Governor Edmund G.”Jerry” Brown Jr. today signed this afternoon the 2018-2019 State Budget and budget trailer bills – the 16th and last state budget before he leaves office in January.
“When I took office back in 2011 with the state facing a $27 billion deficit, I pledged to work with the Legislature to fix California’s financial mess,” said Governor Brown. “Today, the final budget I sign delivers on that pledge and prepares us for the future.”
The Governor was joined today by Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins (Democrat – San Diego), Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (Democrat – Lakewood) and  legislative budget chairs Senator Holly Mitchell (Democrat – Los Angeles) and Assemblymember Phil Ting (Democrat – San Francisco).
“This budget is the product of all of us working together to craft a fiscally responsible plan that serves the people of California while at the same time saves for the future,” said Senate President Pro Tem Atkins. “I especially want to thank Governor Brown’s leadership – in this, his last budget – for helping to bring back California from a historic recession and onto a solid economic footing.”
“Devastating budget cuts first compelled me to run for the Assembly. I thought we needed to do better, and this budget does better,” said Assembly Speaker Rendon. “There is more to do, but by investing in our people and saving for the future, this budget gives us the tools we need to keep doing better.”
“Governor Brown has done an admirable job in leading our state out of budget deficits to financial stability. This is a spending plan we can be proud of because it makes the right investments and reflects many of California’s values,” said Assemblymember and Assembly Budget Committee Chair Ting. “I’m especially glad we were able to partner with cities and counties to help them address the homeless crisis with unprecedented funding for more shelters and services.”
“This budget strikes an appropriate balance that strengthens our state’s fiscal stability with an unprecedented level of reserves, while prioritizing investments that will address the pressing needs of this state,” said Senator and Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee Chair Mitchell. “We continue to work toward restoring programs that still have yet to be made whole from devastating cuts during the great recession and prioritize funding to confront the challenges associated with homelessness and disaster response.”

Statewide Survey on Housing for People with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities


The Lanterman Housing Alliance, in partnership with the Corporation for Supportive Housing and the State Council on Developmental Disabilities, has created a survey to gather data on the housing needs of people with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD) living in California. You are being asked to take this survey because of your unique insights related to this issue.

Your answers will help LHA craft a statewide strategic framework that will be used by policymakers, service providers, and housing developers to better create affordable housing opportunities for this population.

At the start of the survey you will be asked to identify which category of stakeholder you fall into. If you don’t fall exactly into any listed category, but you are still knowledgeable on the subject, please identify yourself as an “advocate.”

This short survey should take no longer than 20 minutes to finish. Please forward this email to any relevant stakeholders in California.

Lastly, if you are a service provider, service coordinator, or family member/friend of a person with I/DD, we encourage you to assist them as needed in completing the survey. The direct opinions and ideas of people with I/DD on this subject matter is essential to informing the process of creating a statewide strategic framework to increase housing opportunities that meet the diverse needs of this important segment of our community.

Thank you. If you have any questions or need help, please email us at housing@lantermanhousingalliance.org. Your question will be answered as soon as possible.
