Mission Statement

The primary mission of DesertArc is to increase the choices, capabilities and independence of persons in the Coachella Valley and the Morongo Basin who are mentally and physically challenged by offering vocational training, community awareness and opportunities of recreation and development of social and personal skills.

Description

DesertArc was founded in 1959 by a small group of concerned parents who wished to expand the horizons of their children's lives. Those heroic first efforts drew the invaluable support of the community, and eventually a professional staff has emerged to meet the growing needs of the mentally and physically challenged citizens of the Coachella Valley and the Morongo Basin. The hard work and support of many people have produced results beyond the dreams of that initial handful of parents. Their goal today, as it was in the beginning, remains unchanged: "...to improve the quality of life for persons who are mentally and physically challenged."
