About Desert Haven Enterprises, Inc.

Welcome to Desert Haven Enterprises, Incorporated! Since 1954, we have been assisting persons with developmental disabilities to achieve their dreams of becoming productive, independent, fully-participating members of their community. Our programs provide those whom we serve, referred to as "consumers", with the opportunity to learn important skills needed in everyday life: at home, in the community, and on the job.  All programs and services offered through Desert Haven are designed to prepare our consumers to reach their greatest level of independence up to and including securing a job within the community--in keeping with the individual strengths, needs, expectations, and choices of each person served.
