Our thoughts and condolences are with the victims, their families, and all those affected by yesterday’s events in San Bernardino. Facilities like Inland Regional Center provide invaluable services to a vulnerable population.

We’re looking forward to our Santa Project Party tonight, and what better day to raise funds for our Children’s Program than on #GivingTuesday? Participate in #GivingTuesday today and you can make a direct impact like helping to provide someone with the chance to learn and communicate with the aid of assistive technology.
