Psychologist – Client Services Consultant

Company Overview

At North Bay Regional Center we believe that all people with developmental disabilities should have the same opportunities as are available to all other citizens. As one of the 21 nonprofit Regional Centers throughout California, we offer a comprehensive program supporting the needs of our communities, provided by driven and passionate employees who ensure that we achieve our goals daily.

North Bay Regional Center is one of 21 Regional Centers for persons with developmental disabilities in California. Started as a grass roots movement, Regional Centers were originally established to assist persons with intellectual disabilities — and their families — in identifying and developing services and programs within their communities that help them lead more independent lives.  Each a non-profit, community-based organization, Regional Centers were established in 1965 under legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Frank Lanterman. The Lanterman Act became effective in 1969 and later expanded the populations served to include persons with intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, and other disabling conditions requiring services similar to individuals diagnosed with intellectual disabilities. In 1972, NBRC was incorporated to serve Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties.

Who We Serve

We partner with community-based organizations and agencies to empower our clients to thrive and live as independently as possible within the geographically, culturally, and ethnically diverse communities we serve.
