Founded in 1967 as Hacienda de los Angeles, a single facility serving three children, Hacienda has continued to expand to meet the needs of the ever-increasing numbers of infants, children and young adults who require the high level of medical and habilitation care offered by the organization.

Today, Hacienda is Arizona’s leading provider of specialized health care and social services to infants, children and young adults who have medical, physical and intellectual impairments. Hacienda’s comprehensive service system is capable of meeting the habilitation, restorative and long-term needs of individuals who are victims of genetic disorders, birth trauma, accidents, physical abuse and debilitating or life threatening diseases.

Our programs focus on the medical, educational, therapeutic, social and recreational needs of each patient. Hacienda’s services include 24-hour nursing, respiratory services, on-grounds and public elementary and high school education programs, early intervention and prevention services, respite care, group home services and a transition program that allows parents and relatives to develop skills to care for their family member at home. On campus, just a few steps away from the main facility is “Angel House,” a one-bedroom apartment, providing a place for families to stay while receiving home-care training or visiting from out of town.

State-of-the-art facilities and equipment combined with dedicated, skilled personnel afford each patient optimum medical care in an atmosphere that is as homelike as possible. Hacienda’s moderate size (60 beds) and creative living environments allow for individual attention and a feeling of closeness between patients and staff.

Day Treatment and Training Program

1402 E. South Mountain Avenue
Phoenix, Arizona 85042
Phone: 602.243.4231

Hacienda operates a day treatment and training program in Phoenix for young adults and teenagers with developmental disabilities.

Our day program serves individuals with a wide range of disabilities. This program can meet a variety of needs from preparing for a job search to assisting with the most acute medical needs. In order to do this, the staff provides many opportunities for socialization both with other individuals who attend our program and the community in general. Outings and excursions are offered several times a week and include trips to the local malls, libraries, museums and community events. Participants are also offered individual time to work on any specific habilitation goals that they may have.

Our day treatment and training program is contracted with the Department of Economic Security/Division of Developmental Disabilities which means we are also able to provide a summer program for children attending the general public school system. These services are offered to families who qualify for services with DDD and have a school age child looking for placement during the summer months. This program is similar to the regular Day Program services but tailored to meet the individual needs of each child to enhance what they learned during the regular school year.

Arizona’s only Autism Spectrum Disorder Program that allows participants to experience six work environments before choosing a prevocational work site. The six work environments are Dietary, Housekeeping, Laundry, Maintenance, Landscape and Business Operations. The program will assist the participants in learning and mastering the personal and interpersonal characteristics that are key for all individuals to be successful in their chosen profession. Participants are provided the opportunity to experience six areas of employment so they can select the type of work that most interests them. The program provides participants the skills and knowledge to develop and hone work related skills necessary to secure gainful employment in the community in their selected line of work.

As participants become ready to graduate they will be given assistance in securing post-program employment which will include providing them with a letter of recommendation that specifies the training received and the skills they possess.
