Quality service providers are the backbone of the regional center system of community care.

Regional Center of Orange County (RCOC) partners with hundreds of service providers – also known as “vendors” – to ensure that services and supports meet the needs of people with developmental disabilities to live safely and with dignity in our community.

This section provides information and technical support to those currently working as service providers with RCOC, as well as requirements for those interested in becoming authorized to provide services (becoming “vendored”) to RCOC consumers and families.

Service Philosophy

RCOC believes each individual with a developmental disability has a right to an as normal as possible life in the community, regardless of the degree of his or her disability. We also believe that all individuals should have the opportunity to choose how they wish to participate in and benefit from everyday living experiences — including education, employment, and social activities — in settings that encourage interaction and integration with non-disabled peers.
