Nationally renowned autism program expands day service options for local families

Chapel Haven West is delighted to announce that its day and community life programs have expanded to serve a growing need for local families.

As an authorized vendor for the AZ State Department of Developmental Disabilities, many local families are unaware that their son or daughter’s DDD budget can often fund the entire day or CLP (Community Life Program) costs.
