Programs

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.

Francisco

Francisco’s Story

Three days before his 18th birthday Francisco was in a car accident. The driver was unhurt, but Francisco, who attended Palm Springs High School, suffered a traumatic brain injury. Since then, he’s lived with his parents, who along with his siblings, provide his care.

Now 37, Francisco attends the Angel View Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities. One of his accomplishments is his improved punctuality. He’s ready each morning when our driver picks him up. These days, instead of sleeping in, Francisco enjoys companionship, recreation and therapeutic activities. He’s learning work skills like document shredding that will enable him to participate in our new work placement program. He can’t wait!
