California’s developmental disability system would not be nearly as successful without the tireless efforts over the years of a strong, underfunded, and passionate vendor community.
Many worry that their businesses, livelihoods, and dedication will disappear in a Self-Determined world, but this isn’t true!
Traditional Regional Center system vendors new opportunities to expand their reach, increase revenue, and provide high-quality, individualized services in innovative ways that the constraints of program designs and catchment areas previously may not have allowed for.
New opportunities to providers who may have never considered serving individuals with developmental disabilities before
Phoenix Facilitation and its founder, Naomi Hagel, are available for a free one-hour consultation with vendors who seek to better understand Self-Determination, follow the associated guidelines, and/or receive assistance to market their services to potential participants, among other concerns. This includes guidance regarding the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Final Rule requirements for community integration and choice, which all services in Self-Determination must be compliant with.
If you own a business in the greater community, Phoenix Facilitation’s team will meet with you and show you how easy, rewarding, and financially feasible providing services to this community can be, and will be by your side every step of the way.
We encourage you to reach out if you provide any of the following:
...or any service that can allow children and adults with disabilities to integrate with people (not just staff) who do and don’t have disabilities, and if you are willing to work a little harder and differently to potentially change someone’s life (it might just be your own!)
Pursuant to Welfare & Institutions Code 4704.6, individuals served by Regional Centers have certain appeal and complaint rights in regards to vendored services.
