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.

Carrina

Carrina’s Story

For a child with a disability, mobility equals freedom. So when Carrina’s wheelchair was stolen, her family was understandably distraught. Without her chair, the 11-year old was unable to move about on her own.

Her dad called Angel View because he had heard about our wheelchair lending program. Created to help kids in urgent situations, the program enables children like Carrina to use a mobility device of ours until their insurance approves a replacement. Though officially it’s a lending program, we often give chairs to children in need, only asking for a return if the child outgrows it or no longer needs it.
