Caseload Ratio Community Meeting Wednesday June 12th at 4pm

Dear NBRC Community:

Each year, all Regional Centers must submit a report to the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) with detailed information as of March 1st on the number of Service Coordinators in relation to the number of clients served.  This report is commonly known as the “Caseload Ratio Report.”

After submitting this year’s report, DDS has determined North Bay Regional Center (NBRC) is out of compliance with the requirements outlined in Welfare and Institutions Code, section 4640.6 (c), which requires regional centers to maintain caseload ratios at, or below, specific averages.  While NBRC has continued to make notable improvements from prior years’ caseload ratios, we have not met ratios in all required categories.

Welfare and Institutions Code, section 4640.6 (f) requires a plan of correction be developed for a regional center which has not complied with the caseload ratio requirements for two consecutive years.  Under this section, the Regional Center is required to solicit input from its community, including families, adults served by the regional center, service providers, the State Council, recognized labor unions, and other interested parties.

If you would like an opportunity to provide input on NBRC’s plan of correction, please join our Community Meeting at 4pm on Wednesday  June 12, 2024, in person at our Napa office (610 Airpark Road, Napa, CA  94558), or via Zoom:

Querida comunidad del Centro Regional del Norte de la Bahía (NBRC):

Cada año, es necesario que todos los Centros Regionales envíen un informe al Departamento de Servicios de Desarrollo (DDS) el 1 de marzo. Este informe debe contener información detallada sobre la proporción entre la cantidad de Coordinadores de Servicios y la cantidad de clientes atendidos. Comúnmente se le conoce como el “Informe de proporción de casos”.

Después de presentar el informe de este año, DDS ha determinado que el Centro Regional de North Bay (NBRC) no cumple con los requisitos descritos en el Código de Bienestar e Instituciones, sección 4640.6 (c), que requiere que los centros regionales mantengan índices de carga de casos en, o por debajo, promedios específicos. Aunque NBRC ha seguido logrando mejoras notables con respecto a los índices de número de casos de años anteriores, no hemos cumplido los índices en todas las categorías requeridas.

Código de Bienestar e Instituciones, sección 4640.6 (f) requiere que se desarrolle un plan de corrección para los centros regionales que no hayan cumplido con los requisitos de proporción de casos durante dos años consecutivos. Según esta sección, el Centro Regional debe solicitar la opinión de su comunidad, incluidas las familias, los adultos atendidos por el centro regional, los proveedores de servicios, el Consejo Estatal, los sindicatos reconocidos y otras partes interesadas.

Si desea tener la oportunidad de brindar su opinión sobre el plan de corrección de NBRC, únase a nuestra reunión comunitaria a las 4:00p. m. el miércoles 12 de junio del 2024, en persona en nuestra oficina de Napa (610 Airpark Road, Napa, CA 94558), o a través de Zoom:
