Francisco's Story

Three days before his 18th birthday Francisco was in a car accident. The driver was unhurt, but Francisco, who attended Palm Springs High School, suffered a traumatic brain injury. Since then, he’s lived with his parents, who along with his siblings, provide his care.

After enrolling in the Angel View Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities, he lives his life to his maximum potential. He no longer wants to sit at home and one of his accomplishments is his improved punctuality.

He’s ready each morning when our driver picks him up. These days, instead of sleeping in, Francisco enjoys companionship, recreation and therapeutic activities.

He loves to be outdoors on the basketball court. He’s always ready to take on a new task. Or shoot a couple more hoops.

He’s learning work skills like document shredding that will enable him to participate in our new work placement program.

He can’t wait for something else to accomplish every day.
