Angel View, a nonprofit serving children and adults with disabilities, is relocating its resale store in Hemet to a new location and converting the existing store to a Clearance Center, announced Tracy Powers, general manager of resale stores.

“We’ve been in business in Hemet for 20 years at our 305 West Florida Avenue location and we greatly appreciate our shoppers’ loyalty,” Powers said. “So we’re very excited to announce that on Saturday, July 25, we’ll open in a new location on the corner of Sanderson Avenue and Acacia at the Lowe’s shopping center. Unlike the old building,” he added, “the new store is air conditioned and state of the art, which will make for a better shopping experience.”

The popular Angel View store on Florida Avenue is becoming a Clearance Center where unsold inventory from Angel View’s stores in Western Riverside County will be sold at deeply discounted prices. “Although it won’t be quite as cool indoors as the new store, if people don’t mind shopping under evaporative cooling, they’ll find hundreds of bargains in clothing, household goods and furniture,” Powers said.

“We can’t thank our donors and shoppers enough,” noted Walter 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 Hemet store is located at 304 S. Sanderson; the phone number is (951) 929-8093. Store hours are Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Sundays 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Donations requiring home pickup can be scheduled by calling (866) 670-8666.

Angel View’s mission is helping children and adults with disabilities reach their maximum potential. Every year, the 60+-year old nonprofit helps hundreds of people make significant gains through a variety of programs. For more information, email info@angelview.org or call (760) 329-6471.


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.
