How We're Funded

The old saying, "It takes a village," is particularly true in Angel View's case.

Through Medi-Cal, the State of California reimburses agencies like Angel View for medical and transportation services. We raise extra funds to provide enhanced services like quality of life outings, the purchase of specialized medical and communications devices, and advanced therapies that allow our residents to achieve a high degree of independence.

As a result, we rely heavily on the generosity of our benefactors: donors, and donors to and patrons of our resale stores. And we greatly appreciate the support of our granters, shown here.  Through your contributions, we are able to provide enhanced services that separate Angel View from more basic care facilities. Increased nursing care for the medically fragile, transportation and supervision for special outings, our annual prom and Spring Fun Days at Camp Forrest, are just a few examples. 

 Angel View is proud to report that we keep our administrative costs low. Approximately 92 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to support our clients with special needs. For more information on our organization, click our Guidestar.org listing. To donate, click here



Marlina

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.
