Services and supports to help each individual live the most independent life possible


For individuals with developmental disabilities, and their families, Harbor Regional Center can provide diagnosis and evaluation, information and referral, individual or family service planning, family support, and assistance in finding and using community resources.



​Harbor Regional Center provides services to individuals of all ages who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, and other conditions that are found to be closely related to intellectual disability or to require the same kinds of services.

The condition must have occurred before the age of 18, be likely to continue indefinitely, and constitute a “substantial” disability for the person.


Early Childhood

If you have a young child who needs specialized care or has a disability, or if you have a concern about your child’s development, there is help and support through our Early Start services!
