Available Services for Adults

Many times our clients or parents/family members ask us for information on the services that are available.
We have developed this list to provide you with an overview of these services. Please keep in mind that services are determined on an individualized basis. Services must be identified as needed on the Individual Person-Centered Plan (IPP), and provided in accordance with Harbor Regional Center service policies, which are posted on our website.

Overview

Employment First

“Employment” is defined as regular or customized employment in the workforce.

  • Where employees with disabilities are included on the payroll of a competitive business or industry
  • Where the assigned employment tasks offer at least minimum or prevailing wages and benefits
  • Where there are ordinary opportunities for integration and interaction with co-workers without disabilities, with customers, and with the general public

Living on Your Own

A Guide To Supported Living Services

Did you ever think about moving into a house or apartment in the community so you could be more independent? Sometimes people with developmental disabilities are afraid to think about living on their own because they believe they will have to do it all by themselves. We all need help to live on our own. Some people just need more help than others.

Client Advisory Committee

The Client Advisory Committee is a group of adults with developmental disabilities, served by Harbor Regional Center, who provide input to Harbor Regional Center’s Board of Trustees.

The CAC meets six times each year, on Saturdays, to discuss issues that are important to all clients of HRC. The CAC also sponsors special events, such as workshops and conferences for adults with developmental disabilities, as well as social events.
