24-Hour Residential Care
Eighteen of Angel View's six-bed homes are classified as Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DD homes) and provide 24-hour residential care to children and adults with developmental disabilities. The 19th is a Congregate Living Health Facility for ventilator-dependent clients with muscular dystrophy.
All of our residences were built with our clients in mind. We designed the floorplans to optimize client comfort, mobility and safety. Approximately 70% of our clients have some form of paralysis, many use mobility devices. Each home features extra-wide doorways, low counter-tops and sinks, and roll-in showers to facilitate wheelchairs. Walls and doorways tend to take a beating from constant wheelchair use. So all homes feature extra-thick walls, complete with heavy-duty reinforcement.
We're also energy conscious. Our houses meet or exceed energy efficiency requirements and are planted with low water usage or drought tolerant landscape. And every home is equipped with a fully operating back-up generator in case of emergency.
Made Possible by Our Supporters
Our homes were made possible by the generosity of our supporters. All homes were designed, constructed, and furnished with donated funds and grants. All meet affordable housing requirements. For information on supporting our ongoing efforts to keep our homes maintained and comfortably furnished, please contact us.
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.
