LOCAL Closer Look: Special Needs Kids Have a Desert Haven

Posted on Sunday, June 6, 2021 by Dan Beck

It has been many years since the state has increased support for people with special needs, and as a result services and help has dwindled to serve an ever-growing population in California. Desert Haven and groups like them have had to find creative ways to serve the thousands of special needs residents, and the communities they serve have stepped up to join their work in helping the SN Community be independent and find worthwhile employment as well as services they will need for the rest of their lives. Dan Beck talks with the Executive Director of Desert Haven about the work and challenges.
