At VALLEYLIFE, everyone matters. No person in our community should ever be overlooked or ignored because of a physical or mental disability. Sadly, every day here in Arizona, that’s exactly what happens.
Without VALLEYLIFE, many of those we serve would be forgotten, abandoned, or become homeless or imprisoned.
At VALLEYLIFE, we are committed to providing high-quality programs and services to disabled individuals and their families who require a family living environment, vocational training, day program services or in-home care. Hundreds of parents throughout our community depend on VALLEYLIFE to provide safe, loving and consistent care to their children and adult family members with special needs. Our programs provide reliable, caring and nurturing environments for their loved ones. For most of these families, this type of care is critical to ensure the very survival of their family. Without the type of support we provide, many families would find themselves unable to maintain full-time employment, living at or below the poverty level, or becoming homeless. Other parents need qualified caregivers to provide respite from the enormous demands of caring for a special needs adult or child 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
VALLEYLIFE is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Since 1947, we have been assisting individuals with disabilities in the greater Phoenix community in the pursuit of a full and meaningful life.
Our members represent diverse ethnic backgrounds and range in age from one to more than 86 years old. Diagnoses range from mild to profound cognitive disabilities, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Alzheimer’s, autism, serious mental illness, mobility/hearing/vision impairments and traumatic brain injury.
We service a full range of disabilities and by supporting such a broad spectrum of individuals; we have an in depth understanding of how disability affects each person’s life and what support they need. This allows us to successfully customize our state-of-the-art, innovative offerings to fit the unique goals of each and every person we serve. Additionally, without focusing on a specific disability, we are able to serve a greater number of people.
At VALLEYLIFE, we understand that while our members may all have very different diagnoses, they all share the need to live full, happy and independent lives, and we are dedicated to ensuring their success.
