Client's Rights Advocacy

Your Clients' Rights Advocate

If you believe that the regional center has wrongly or unfairly denied your rights, you may file a complaint with the Clients’ Rights Advocate. This process resolves complaints other than disputes about eligibility or the nature, scope, or amount of services—which are resolved by filing for a fair hearing.

In either case, you may contact TCRC’s Clients' Rights Advocates:

Andrew Gonzalez, Clients’ Rights Advocate/Attorney
Gina Gheno, Assistant Clients’ Rights Advocate
201 N Calle Cesar Chavez Ste. 202 SB, CA 93103 
Phone 805-308-8950 Fax 805-308-8949
