Angel View provides a full range of services for children and adults with disabilities. We provide 24-hour Residential Care, a therapeutic Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities and Angel View Outreach
for local children with disabilities. Each spring, clients of our homes
and Day Program also enjoy a day camp program at Camp Forrest, our
wheelchair accessible campground.
The State of California requires organizations like Angel View to provide Active Treatment. Active treatment is defined as "an aggressive effort to fulfill each client's fullest developmental capacity, optimal physical, intellectual, social and vocational functioning." In our case, helping children and adults with developmental disabilities is not just our business, it's our passion! All of our efforts are directed toward helping them acquire the skills they need to function as independently as possible.
Among the services we routinely provide clients of our Residential and Day Program are:
Jesus, 23, has cerebral palsy and a seizure disorder. Once he completed his special education classes, his parents, who both work full-time, needed a place where he could continue to grow. He started our Day Program 10 months ago.
He was shy when he first arrived and prone to speaking one word answers. So we were thrilled to see him open up and use full sentences when he responds to staffers like Hope, whom he clearly adores. Jesus participates in all activities. He knows the routine and where he’s supposed to be. When it’s time to leave, he grabs his bag, waits for him mom, and looks forward to coming back.
