Angel View, a nonprofit agency serving children and adults with disabilities, and the City Urban Revitalization Corporation (CURC), a non-profit organization working with the City of Cathedral City, have concluded a property exchange that will enable Angel View to more than double the size of its presence in Cathedral City. The exchange also paves the way for the City’s long awaited re-development of a hotel at the site surrounding Angel View’s existing resale store.
For over 40 years, Angel View previously occupied what residents and shoppers had often referred to as the “big white barn” on E. Palm Canyon Drive near Date Palm. The new location is one mile west of that in the former Touch of Class/Lumpy's Golf store building (67625 E. Palm Canyon Drive) and will be 18,000 square-feet. Half of the space will be used for the resale store, and the remaining will be for office space and programs.
“Our Cathedral City resale store has always been one our busiest locations,” said Tracy Powers, general manager of Angel View resale stores. “We are excited to move to our new, larger location. It’s going to feature a much more modern space to display our gently-used merchandise, plus the additional room is going to be great for expanded programs for our clients living with disabilities.” The new store is currently being remodeled and Angel View plans on moving in to the location in early 2016.
“We are thrilled to assist such a special organization that does so much for people with disabilities,” said Stan Henry, Mayor of Cathedral City. “The new location places Angel View in an area where other resellers are clustered together to provide shoppers with convenience, choice, and savings on treasures for home and more.”
“We greatly appreciate the City's assistance with the relocation project and look forward to many more years of community support from our donors and customers at our new location,” said Walt Johnson, MD, president of the Angel View board of directors. “Our stores generate vital revenues that enable us to provide an exceptional quality of life for our clients. Every shirt and shoe someone donates or buys turns into a client’s step toward independence.” The new Cathedral City store will be located at 67625 E. Palm Canyon Drive. Store hours will be Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Sundays 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

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.
