Disability Rights California OCRA
The Office of Clients’ Rights Advocacy (OCRA) is part of Disability Rights California. OCRA provides free legal information, advice, and representation to regional center clients. OCRA serves clients of all 21 regional centers throughout California, and has been serving them since 1999. We have a Clients’ Rights Advocate (CRA) serving each regional center. The CRA helps protect regional center clients’ rights.
Anyone can ask OCRA about a regional center client’s rights. OCRA will answer the questions or help find another resource. Regional center clients or family members can ask OCRA to advocate for their rights.
Your Clients’ Rights Advocate can:
- Help regional center clients and their families get services.
- Provide information about rights and services.
- Provide training.
- Represent regional center clients in meetings and hearings.
- Investigate complaints about denial of rights.
