Guide Dogs of the Desert

Since 1972, Guide Dogs of the Desert has made a difference in the lives of individuals who are blind or visually impaired. Over the past 45 years, more than 1,400 client/guide dog teams from around the country have graduated from Guide Dogs of the Desert – enjoying richer, fuller, and more productive lives. Attending a 28-day in-residence training on the Guide Dogs of the Desert campus, the blind individual is matched with the highest-quality guide dog that is custom trained to the individual’s personal needs and home environment—all at no cost to the client—thanks to financial supporters like you. Because of this founding philosophy, class sizes are small assuring individualized training for optimal success as a team. It is you who makes it possible for Guide Dogs of the Desert to provide these individuals with custom-trained guide dogs that deliver the gift of new found confidence, independence, safe mobility, and infinite smiles.  

Guide Dogs of the Desert is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, totally reliant on philanthropy from individuals, foundations, corporations, and service clubs.  We do not receive any state or federal funding.

Well in the Desert

We have made huge strides over the years and are known by all for the good work we do. Our late Supervisor Roy Wilson described us as “the safety net for the western end of the Coachella Valley”.

Our presence in Palm Springs over the last 20 years has been vital to both those in need and the community at large. We are a positive force in the community, and will continue to provide these services to all in the City of Palm Springs.

Senior Advocates of the Desert

Benefit Advocacy
Many of our clients live alone and have little family and social support. They are not aware of programs they may be eligible for or if they are, they have tried to apply on their own, but have been turned down because of onerous government bureaucracy. As a result, many have just given up. We meet one-on-one with our clients in their homes and assist them in applying for government programs.


The program is limited and based on need and available funds only to qualifying low-income seniors. All assistance is offered in the context of meeting with a staff member of Senior Advocates.
