The Disability Thrive Initiative was launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift in how regional center services are currently being delivered to keep you and/or your family member as safe as possible.
Throughout 2021, the Disability Thrive Initiative will deliver free webinars, support, and a resource library to help the IDD community with the alternative services offered during the public health crisis. We strongly encourage you to take part in the webinars, and to stay connected to the Disability Thrive Initiative through their social media channels, so you can stay informed of the latest information about COVID-19 and its impact to your services.
The Disability Thrive Initiative is presented by the California Disability Services Association (CDSA) and Easterseals of Southern California (ESSC), in collaboration with the State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD), The Arc of California and California Alliance for Leadership and Education (ALE), and generously funded by the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and San Diego Regional Center (SCDC).
