The Gift of Work

Employment Training

There’s no greater satisfaction than being paid for a job well done. But many of our clients have never known that feeling.

This July, we’re expanding the Work Skills portion of our therapeutic Day Program for adults with disabilities. For the first time, we’ll offer employment training. Clients will work under the direction of a job coach who will liaison with local employers. Clients will be able to choose from participating employers to work in retail, restaurants, or other businesses.

Jamie

Jaime’s Story

A frantic mother of two lost her vital records in a fire. Her son Jaime, 6, has a severe form of spina bifida, a type of birth defect. He needed prescriptions refilled, but without her Medi-Cal card and information, the pharmacy couldn’t fill them.

Angel View Outreach helped her navigate the system to reinstate her benefits. We also helped her access resources, enrolled Jaime in our mileage reimbursement program so he wouldn’t miss important appointments with his specialists, and used a mini-grant to cover the gap cost of medication he needed right away. Helping kids avoid medical emergencies is a key program goal.
