Notes from the Nonprofit

Throughout 2014, Angel View has been celebrating its 60th year of continuous service to children and adults with disabilities. Our colorful history has been memorialized in a new book, "Angel View: A Dream and a Miracle." It tells the tale of how a tiny community gathered behind parents whose children suffered with polio to create a lasting legacy. The book is available at www.angelview.org

How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Angel View accepts clients without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, or disability; the only criterion is a qualifying disability. Through provision of 24-hour residential care, therapeutic Day Program and Outreach services, we assist children and adults with orthopedic disorders, intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, acquired head injuries and neuromuscular diseases; 70% have some form of paralysis. Clients achieve their maximum potential with the help of physicians, dieticians, speech pathologists, therapists, psychologists, case managers, educational programs and work experience trainers. Some impacts are difficult to quantify but are truly life changing. It's difficult to imagine the relief a family experiences when a loved one they have tried to care for 24 hours a day moves into an Angel View home or starts attending our Day Program, or the advancements made by the individual with disabilities. Through our individualized program plans, designed following assessments by a cross-functional team, our clients make significant improvements in independent living skills. Their progress is tracked quarterly by our Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professionals (QIDPs). By helping children with disabilities get to medical services through our Outreach Program, we anticipate but can't quantify reducing visits to local emergency rooms and improving their general health. By helping them sign up for Medi-Cal, Inland Regional Center, Healthy Families, etc., the potential benefit could be in the tens of thousands of dollars per child.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Long Term Residential Care for Developmentally Disabled

Angel View's residential homes are classified as Intermediate Care Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled (ICF/DD). These six-bed health facilities are licensed by the Licensing and Certification Division of the California Department of Public Health to provide 24-hour services. Angel View provides the following residential services:

ICF/DD-H (Habilitative)Angel View's ICF/DD-H homes provide 24-hour personal care, habilitation, developmental, and supportive health services to six or fewer developmentally disabled persons who have intermittent recurring needs for nursing services, but have been certified by a physician and surgeon as not requiring availability of continuous skilled nursing care.

ICF/DD-N (Nursing)Angel View's ICF/DD-H homes provide 24-hour personal care, developmental services, and nursing supervision for developmentally disabled persons who have intermittent recurring needs for skilled nursing care but have been certified by a physician and surgeon as not requiring continuous skilled nursing care. These homes serve medically fragile children and young adults who have developmental disabilities or demonstrate significant developmental delay that may lead to a developmental disability if not treated.

In addition to ICF homes, Angel View operates two other types of residential programs for the developmentally disabled: DD/CNC and CLHF homes.

DD/CNCAngel View's DD/CNC home, the Melvyn Haber Home, is a six-bed facility that provides residents with continuous nursing care. Clients are medically fragile and developmentally disabled, but do not require acute care.

CLHF HomeIn addition, Angel View operates a six-bed home, the Jack Surnow Home, licensed as a Congregate Living Health Facility, or a CLHF home. Residents of this special home benefit from a variety of therapies, 24-hour nursing care, individualized programs and community integration.

Day Program for Developmentally Disabled

Angel View’s Adult Day Care program provides weekday services to eligible clients from the Coachella Valley. Designed to promote independence in a center-based setting and in daily life, our programs encourage self-determination and self-advocacy, improve educational and vocational skills, advance personal social skills, and increase 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 will provide restricted health care plans. Also as needed, a licensed nurse will be on staff at the Day Care Center during operating hours.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Angel View's vision is to be a premier provider of services to people with disabilities. It is our goal to offer a variety of programs to meet the needs of people with varying levels of capability. We are also seeking to be sustainable, both financially and environmentally. In recent years, we have launched two solar projects and switched our resale store diesel trucks for cleaner burning natural gas vehicles.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    For decades, we provided 24 hour residential care to people with disabilities. But to assist those who don't need 24 hours care, in 2008, we started a therapeutic Day Program for individuals who had aged out of special education classes. The program meets daily and helps clients attain new skills. And to support local families raising children with disabilities, in 2012, we began an Outreach Program. The program provides a wide range of free services and supports.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Angel View has provided services to individuals with disabilities since 1954. We have extensive experience and expertise in this field.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We measure all clients' progress against goals stated in their Individual Program Plans. We also track client census, hours of service, number of client trips provided in our wheelchair accessible buses, an the number of meals served. In a typical year, we provide 1 million hours of direct care to clients, 40,000 client trips, and 135,000 meals, snacks and nutritional supplements.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    • Angel View has built 19 six-bed homes for children and adults with profound disabilities.
    • In 1996, Angel View built a wheelchair accessible campground on 17 acres in Joshua Tree, CA.
    • In 2008, to meet a growing need for services, we built our two newest homes which serve medically fragile clients with disabilities.
    • Also in 2008, we launched a Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities who have aged out of special education classes. Clients live in private residences in the Coachella Valley and/or in Angel View homes.
    • In 2010-11, in collaboration with Desert Healthcare District, we began an innovative pilot program to help relieve the valley's shortage of low-wage healthcare workers.
    • In 2011, we conducted an informal needs assessment to determine the needs of local families struggling to raise their children with disabilities.
    • Based on their responses, in 2012, we launched Angel View Outreach, a program designed to support local families whose children have disabilities..
    • Thanks to grants from private funders, in 2012, we refurbished two wings of our main building in Desert Hot Springs and expanded our Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities from 30 to 80 clients.
    • In 2013, thanks to grants from a group of national contractors who donated time and materials, our Day Program courtyard was renovated from a near useless space into a beautiful outdoor wheelchair activity area.
    • In 2013, we began a physical activity program for our clients with disabilities funded by the Palm Springs Mayor's Challenge and Desert Healthcare Foundation in conjunction with the goals of the Clinton Health Matters Initiative.
    • To help offset the difference between Medi-Cal reimbursement and our operating expenses, we operate a growing network of Thrift Marts in the Coachella Valley, High Desert and surrounding communities.
    • In 2014 Angel View celebrated 60 years of continuous service to children and adults with disabilities.

Funding Needs

1. Operations: We regularly seek funding for our residential care program (we provide 135,000 meals, snacks and nutritional supplements to clients each year); our Day Program for adults with disabilities (we provide more than 40,000 client trips per year in our specially equipped fleet of paratransit vehicles) and Angel View Outreach. This vital program, which assists 500 local children with disabilities per year, is funded entirely by philanthropy.   2. Resale Stores: 90% of our philanthropic revenues come from our Resale Store Network which we are seeking to expand by two stores per year. Each store requires a one-time investment of $75,000 and yields approximately $100,000 per year in net proceeds to support Angel View's programs and services.   3. Capital Campaign: Angel View operates 19 group homes for children and adults with developmental disabilities. These homes are residential structures that receive industrial use. Our goal is to raise $300,000 per year for our upkeep on our homes.

Executive Director

Ms. Patti Park

BIO

Patti Park has 25+ years of experience in program and operations management. She joined Angel View in 2012 as director of administration and was quickly promoted to chief operating officer. In 2015, she was named executive director. She is responsible for our programs to provide 24-hour residential care to children and adults with developmental disabilities in 19 group homes; Angel View's therapeutic Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities; and Angel View's Outreach Program for local families raising children with disabilities.

Prior to her work at Angel View, Patti was a regional administrator for the Department of Social and Health Services in Washington State. In this role, she provided leadership to 650+ employees serving 500,000 clients throughout six counties. Responsibilities included program management of federal and state programs, quality assurance and service delivery, and operations management including oversight of a $50 million operating budget and 12 facilities.

In addition to her regional responsibilities, she acted as senior personnel advisor to Washington State executive management on federal, state and collective bargaining issues. She advised on hiring, discipline, reduction in force, investigations, talent management, human resource departmental structure, workforce diversity, labor management, grievance resolution, classification and compensation.

She was graduated Magna Cum Laude in Economics (1990) from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington.

STATEMENT FROM THE Executive Director

"Angel View is dedicated to assisting children and adults with disabilities. We provide 24-hour residential care to up to 114 children and adults with developmental disabilities in group homes located in residential settings. All of our clients participate in special education or Day programs which help them advance to their highest skill level. Our clients attend an amazing array of community events, participate in special events, enjoy outings to movies, malls, parks, shops, restaurants, family visits and more. Their quality of life is as important to us as their basic care.
We've also responded to growing and changing community needs by developing new programs such as our Day Program for adults with disabilities and our Outreach Program. The Outreach Program assists local families struggling to care for their children with disabilities living in their own homes (as opposed to ours). Recent cuts by the state and the economy in general have made it so hard for families! We want to do whatever we can to offer our assistance!"
