As part of the Department of Developmental Services' (DDS) commitment to provide information to the general public, individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, and professionals in the field, DDS produces the Fact Book on an annual basis. The Fact Book presents pertinent data over a 10-year period about the individuals served by DDS, including an overview of the service delivery system and trends in California. The Fact Book contains valuable information that is helpful in better understanding California’s developmental services system and the people served.
DDS Accepting Ornaments for State Capitol Tree
The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) is inviting regional centers, developmental centers, and community art programs to send ornaments to Sacramento for the State Capitol tree. There is a tree lighting ceremony that takes place the first or second week of December. This year, as in previous years, a child with a developmental disability will participate in the televised ceremony. The child will place one of the ornaments onto the tree during the ceremony with Governor Brown and First Lady Anne Gust Brown.
Community art programs may send ornaments directly to DDS by November 10, 2017. Be sure to include the shipping form that is included with the guidelines.
Any other regional center clients and families, deliver your ornaments to the Koch-Young Resource Center at Lanterman Regional Center by November 3, 2017, and we will ship them to DDS.
