Services provided by our service providers fall into
several service categories. Please keep in mind that the
provision of services is 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. Some services on the IPP are provided by publicly-funded
community agencies, such as Medi-Cal, Head Start, etc., and some
are funded by HRC, after we have met the requirement of exploring
all other possible funding sources. We know that you want to
understand the variety of services available, so that you can be
a well-informed participant in the service planning process.
Services generally fall into one of the following categories.
At Harbor Regional Center, we believe that a good support system
is a critical advantage for families. A network of information
and support gives families a good foundation for navigating the
service system, making informed choices, and achieving a better
quality of life for the child with a developmental delay or
disability. Support is offered in the form of Parent Support
Groups, the Parent to Parent Mentor Program and the HRC Sibling
Club. For more detailed information on these family support
options, please check the HRC website (Resources/family), discuss
with your Service Coordinator, or visit the HRC Resource and
Assistive Technology Center in Torrance or Long Beach.
Adult Day Activity programs provide supportive, activities during
the day for adults who are not able to be employed. Activities
are designed to provide the maximum inclusion possible in the
community, and individualized options for training in adult
living skills, work activity and volunteerism, personal
expression, socialization, and therapeutic support.
Options include Inclusion Centers, Partial Inclusion, Partial
Work, Creative Arts, and Therapeutic programs.
For adults who are no longer in school and are preparing to live
a more independent life, HRC offers individual assessment and
center-based training in independent living skills.
In-Home Adult Support
For adults living with family members who are aging, ill, or
otherwise unable to provide all of the support needed, in-home
support may be provided to assist in making connections with
community resources, and maintain the adult client’s well-being.
