The Adult Day Program began operation in 1984 under the direction of the Saddleback Valley YMCA by a grant from the Junior League of Orange County. In 1987, the program moved to its current location at Mount of Olives Church. In 1994, the church accepted full responsibility for the ongoing daily operation of the program. The families of Mount of Olives Church have been deeply supportive of the program and its vibrant service to the community.

"The staff, those current and in the past, worked a miracle of sorts for both Ed and me. You can always give credit for the structure and stimulation, but that doesn't get to the heart of the matter. It's the people who are there, each day, working with the participants because they are committed to making life for them and their families better...You treat Ed and I as individuals, not just as a part of a group, and that means the world to us."
