The Residential Services Orientation (RSO) is required for new residential care facility administrators and for those interested in developing a residential care facility in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey counties. RSO attendance is also required for staff at a Family Home Agency.

A confirmation letter, RSO schedule, and directions to San Andreas Regional Center will be sent to you a week before the RSO. No one will be admitted to the RSO without both 1. Eventbrite ticket and 2. a confirmation letter from San Andreas Regional Center. Confirmation letters will not be sent to those residential care facility registrants who have not sent a Letter of Intent prior to Wednesday, October 19, 2016.
To receive a Certificate of Completion, registrants are required to attend all 3 sessions of the RSO.
