A Daily Feeling of Accomplishment
Angel View’s therapeutic Day Program provides weekday services to
eligible adults with developmental disabilities from the Coachella
Valley and High Desert. Designed to promote independence in a
center-based setting and in daily life, our program encourages
self-determination and self-advocacy, provides education and work skills
training, advances personal social skills, and increases integration
into the community.
We accept both ambulatory and non-ambulatory men and women age 22 and older. Transportation to and from the center is provided by Angel View in specially equipped air conditioned vans and buses. When needed, we provide restricted health care plans. Also, as needed, a licensed nurse is on staff at the Day Program during operating hours.
Thanks to donations from very generous benefactors, we were able to remodel two wings of our headquarters in Desert Hot Springs to allow the program to grow. Currently, 80 adults are enrolled but we will soon be expanding to 105.
If you have a loved one or friend who would benefit from this therapeutic program, please have them contact Director of Program Services Cindy Cliburn, Day Program Administrator Michele Hunsaker, or call us at (760) 329-6471.
Timmy spent his childhood baffling the medical community. His digestive issues and seizure activity were so profound, doctors didn’t understand how he could still be alive. His mom devoted herself to medical research and finding a place that could care for her son. Between hospitalizations, he lived in various group homes in New York. At the last one, he had so many injuries his mom sought another solution. They headed west.
Since moving into an Angel View home, Timmy is calmer, more expressive, and has far fewer seizures. He loves the staff, his housemates, our therapy dogs and his word board. He’s so adored by staff, his mother says happily, “Now he has more than one mommy.”
