A SUPPORTED LIFE is a life that is rich in qualities a person most desires, and one which shows how connected we all are to each other.

A life which:
  • grows from a person's own choices, desires and dreams;
  • is not controlled by what kind of services are currently available;
  • goes beyond just meeting a person's basic needs, to reaching a rich quality of life;
  • includes all areas of a person's life;
  • is always changing throughout a person's life;
  • is the kind of life we all want and is not unique to people who happen to have disabilities.

Are you interested in being a Facilitator
who assists a member of Alta California Regional Center’s
Board of Directors?


People who use Alta California Regional Center services are joining advisory committees and boards of directors to share their views. Alta’s Board of Directors assures its members who have disabilities have the assistance they need by providing a support person or “facilitator.”

Members select facilitators who assist them with carrying out their duties on the Board and Committees.

The Supported Life Institute is available to help with the selection, payment and training of facilitators.

To learn more about being a facilitator, contact Supported Life Institute (916) 567-1301
