Highlights

Bay Area Office Statement

Californians with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families, have the same rights and opportunities as other Californians.  We, the Bay Area Regional Office of the State Council on Developmental Disabilities, are dedicated to influence, educate and impact the service system and greater community in California through:

  • Capacity Building
  • Systematic Change
  • Advocacy
  • Access to information, training and partnership

We strive for full equality and opportunity in all areas of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have the right to get support, to take risks and to live their best lives.  We believe in seeing people first, disability second.  We believe in allyship.

We love what we do, and are honored to serve.
