PCPA has received a request from Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) State Center staff that are assisting in moving center residents to community living. They asked if any residential provider has a DVD or video showing community homes and activities provided to individuals. This would be beneficial for orienting individuals and their families to community homes and the types of supports and services offered. Please let Linda Drummond know if you have such a DVD/video and would be willing to share it with state center staff.

The ODP 2012/13 rates and fee schedule have not been received. When it is, it will forwarded to members.
