D.E.S.I. Regional Center Services

Many D.E.S.I. clients are able to access our services because they are a consumer of the Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center, South Central Los Angeles Regional Center, San Gabriel Pomona Regional Center and or other surrounding regional center.

Some examples of D.E.S.I.’s regional center services include:

If you or your loved one is already a regional center consumer, you may request services directly by placing a call to your assigned service coordinator, and requesting Designated Exceptional Services for Independence (or D.E.S.I.) as your service provider.
