Who we are: Far Northern Regional Center (FNRC) is one of 21 community-based, non-profit agencies throughout California that serve children and adults with developmental disabilities.

We work with community based organizations to give our clients the opportunity to live and work independently within the communities we serve.
Vendors/Providers: For regional centers to fulfill their objectives, they secure these services and supports from qualified local service providers and vendors. “Vendor” and “provider” are the words used to describe the community professionals who provide direct services.
What does a job coach do: Job coaches are individuals who specialize in assisting individuals with disabilities to learn and accurately carry out job assignments. Job coaches provide one-on-one training tailored to the needs of the employee. They coach the employee to work more and more on his/her own until completely self-sufficient and able to perform job duties accurately and effectively without assistance.
What will I do as a Job Coach: Work with individuals with cognitive impairments, provide assistance in note taking, support in increasing memory or concentration, help with managing emotions, stress or anxiety, learn proper business etiquette, understand and follow schedules and deadlines, improve workplace socialization skills and develop work skills.
Typical basic job requirements: High school diploma, CA driver’s license, ability to pass fingerprint and background checks. Transporting individuals in your personal vehicle is not required. Job specific training will be provided by your employer (one of FNRC’s community partners/providers).
