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.

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.
