The Gift of Help

Angel View Outreach

There’s no greater challenge than being the single parent of a child with a disability. Conflicting stressors make functioning nearly impossible for those without basic life skills.

This July, we’re adding a Family Stabilization component to our Outreach Program for children with disabilities. Our bilingual outreach specialists will provide critical training on calendaring healthcare appointments and arranging transportation, sharing time and energy with all children in the household, and budgeting/shopping to enable better food choices.

Marlina’s Story

Marlina, 39, with Down syndrome, knows what a difference a year makes. Just 18 months after moving into an Angel View home, she'd transformed in every way. Most significantly, through the help of our medical staff, dietitians, and caring house staff, she’s shed 90 pounds by eating more healthfully. She couldn’t wait to show off her new figure as a model in the 2016 annual Angel View fashion show.

Besides her weight loss, she’s more settled emotionally. Instead of tears, her smile lights up the room. Her ability to focus has dramatically improved, as has her ability to transition smoothly when staffers change shifts at her house. Marlina, our princess, loves frilly things, art and the visiting therapy dogs.
