Contact: Marsha D. Mitchell-Bray

LOS ANGELES—South Central Los Angeles Regional Center (SCLARC) will host the Grand Opening of its new headquarters–Legacy Plaza–on Saturday, November 14, 2015 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This momentous occasion will feature a ribbon cutting and awards ceremony as well as a showcase detailing the work of SCLARC’s service provider partners and consumers so that Grand Opening participants understand the benefit of the agency’s programming and resource development to regional center consumers and families.

SCLARC is one of 21 private, non-profit centers contracting with the State of California, specifically with the Department of Developmental Services, to provide diagnosis, evaluation, case management and life-long planning to individuals who are developmentally disabled. Currently, the agency serves approximately 13,500 individuals who have been diagnosed with a developmental disability. A developmental disability is a condition that originates before an individual reaches the age of 18, continues, or is expected to continue, indefinitely, and constitutes a substantial disability for that individual. Persons who have been diagnosed as having intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and autism may be eligible to receive SCLARC services.

Legacy Plaza, the first major office development constructed in the Historic West Adams corridor in four decades, is now home to the regional center’s 300 employees and consultants as well as thousands of its consumers, families and vendors. SCLARC’s Board of Directors and Leadership Team have made a commitment to inspire economic development in this area as well as provide local organizations with access to state of the art meeting rooms and ample parking for weekend community events.

The much anticipated Legacy Plaza Grand Opening will be attended by a hosts of SCLARC’s political representatives including Congresswoman Maxine Waters (43rd District), Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas (2nd District), Senator Isadore Hall (35th District), 8th District Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson, and Assemblyman Sebastian Ridley-Thomas (54th District) as well as more than 350 staff members, stakeholders and community partners. Legacy Plaza is located at 2500 S. Western Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90018. For more information about Legacy Plaza’s Grand Opening or South Central Los Angeles Regional Center, please Marsha D.
