A Daily Feeling of Accomplishment
Angel View’s therapeutic Day Program provides weekday services to
eligible adults with developmental disabilities from the Coachella
Valley and High Desert. Designed to promote independence in a
center-based setting and in daily life, our program encourages
self-determination and self-advocacy, provides education and work skills
training, advances personal social skills, and increases integration
into the community.
We accept both ambulatory and non-ambulatory men and women age 22 and older. Transportation to and from the center is provided by Angel View in specially equipped air conditioned vans and buses. When needed, we provide restricted health care plans. Also, as needed, a licensed nurse is on staff at the Day Program during operating hours.
Thanks to donations from very generous benefactors, we were able to remodel two wings of our headquarters in Desert Hot Springs to allow the program to grow. Currently, 80 adults are enrolled but we will soon be expanding to 105.
If you have a loved one or friend who would benefit from this therapeutic program, please have them contact Director of Program Services Cindy Cliburn, Day Program Administrator Michele Hunsaker, or call us at (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.
