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.

Carrina

Carrina’s Story

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.
