Some regional centers have small, specialized CCFs. The regional centers run them at “negotiated” rates. This means the regional center and vendor agree on the rate, based on what they provide. These CCFs usually have 1-4 people with complex needs. They are not part of the ARM Level system.
These specialized homes serve people with unique mental health and behavioral needs that cannot be met by other community living options. They usually provide 24-hour on-site specialized staff and professional services to meet specific needs of residents. Often, these homes can respond to on-site crises to meet needs and promote maximum dignity and independence.
