Giving frees us from the familiar territory of our own needs by opening our mind to the unexplained worlds occupied by the needs of others.
Due to our national and state recession, many of our clients have needs we cannot meet. Your generosity makes it possible for Far Northern Regional Center to extend special services to our clients. Your tax-deductable contribution can be used to fund equipment, health care, special events and the like, when funding would normally be considered outside the scope of the State of California's Regional Center Contract with our agency.
Monies are also needed to provide emergency food, clothing and shelter in situations where a client lacks appropriate financial resources, alternate private/public funds are unavailable and the regional center is prohibited by law from funding such items.
Also, FNRC can accept your financial help for special programs like the annual Holidays Are For Caring program that provides gifts to people with developmental disabilities during the holiday season who may not otherwise receive gifts. Likewise, donations are accepted to help support the FOCUS Film Festival (see the FOCUS Film Festival site for more information.)
