Regional Centers are nonprofit, private corporations that contract with the State of California, Department of Developmental Services (DDS). Regional Centers are funded to provide diagnosis and assessment of eligibility and help plan, access, coordinate and monitor the services and supports that are needed because of a developmental disability.
