Angels In Waiting

AIW is dedicated to recruiting qualified nurses to provide loving homes, nursing care, and other needed services for medically fragile foster care infants and children. We help facilitate the child's move from hospitals, group homes and institutions into private residences under the care of Registered and Licensed Vocational Nurses as their foster parents. We provide two essential ingredients for these children to heal - loving home environments and individualized nursing care.

A HALLMARK EVENT

Angels In Waiting third quarter report. 
THE DOCTORS REVISITED

On May 10th Angels In Waiting was once again featured on "The Doctors" television show.  The show highlighted the work that AIW had done to help heal the trauma at Sandyhook.  The AB Bill 1133 that is currently before the California state legislature was also touched upon in the initial filming.  AIW greatly appreciates the  exposure that this show has generated and the potentiality of working with the Dr. Phil Foundation in the future.   
AB Bill  1133

The initial voting by the Assembly Floor produced an unanimous 71-0 approval of this bill that will generate the funds necessary to treat the destitute foster care infants and children whose lives have been impacted by drugs, abuse and genetic anomalies.  Linda West-Conforti will be traveling to Sacramento at the beginning of June to witness the final  Senet vote on AB1133.  
Sammy, "the miracle baby," who overcame death four times and who has survived to become an intelligent ten-year old will be accompanying Linda.  Sammy is a sterling example of how the unique, specialized care that Angels In Waiting offers can turn a premature tragedy of a drug-addicted mother into a well-adjusted thriving child. We are also focusing on setting up funds for these children that will cover special education needs and eventually higher education.  
HALLMARK TELEVISION   
The  senior producers of the Hallmark station show, "Home And Family," have expressed  interest in featuring AIW on  a segment that should film in late June or early July.  We understand that this show has an audience of ninety million viewers and will be a marvelous opportunity for AIW in terms of introducing our organization and the Nurse-Foster Parent program to a large segment of the population.  
As the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, approaches, we wish all our benefactors illumination and tranquality.

Angels In Waiting 's Assembly Bill: AB1133

Our AB 1133
Our AB 1133

Assembly Bill 1133

How Many Angels Must We Send Back to Heaven, And How Many Billions Of Dollars Must California Spend?

Angels In Waiting (AIW), a 501c3 charity created by nurses, has been granted AB 1133 carried by Assemblywoman, Holly Mitchell, District 54, which encompasses UCLA.  AB 1133, will implement AIW’s Nurse-Foster Parent Program throughout California. Our cost effective, innovative program literally has the potential to save the state of California Billions of dollars and Countless Childhoods! Your support for our AB 1133 will help us get this viable bill into law. Together, we can make a very significant impact on this rapidly growing and increasingly tragic problem.  Plus, we will have the resources to recruit more qualified nurses, who have the homes and sensitive hearts necessary to provide the special nursing care and dedication needed to help California’s growing legions of medically- fragile, foster care infants and children so that they can thrive and succeed. During this year’s National Women’s Political Caucus in Sacramento, which two professors from UCLA and AIW’s team attended, we submitted our innovative and cost saving Nurse-Foster Parent program.  Many of the Legislators displayed a strong interest in carrying our AB Bill.  However, due to Holly Mitchell’s deep commitment to improving the foster care system and the fact that her district encompasses UCLA, we felt Assemblywoman, Holly Mitchell, would be the best fit for our Assembly Bill.

AIW Nurse-Foster Parent program offers a significant improvement in the delivery of healthcare to California’s high–risk, medically fragile foster care population, while offering substantial fiscal savings in comparison to institutionalized care settings, group homes or ill-educated, poorly supported foster care homes for the medically fragile. Please refer to the endorsement letter from Kern County Public Health Services.  

 

Conclusion:  The Future With Your  Support

In the years since its inception, AIW has helped find permanent homes for 180 infants and children and has recruited 40 plus nurses who have medically fragile children in their homes, with approximately 15 nurses currently obtaining instruction from DFCS and or Medi-Cal. However, the licensing of these nurses has been held up in the process due to the prolonged wait for CCL to licenses our Nurse-Foster Parent homes. AIW is launching a campaign to duplicate our “Nurse Foster Parent" program throughout Los Angeles County and then into all of the counties of California and onto the nation.  Together, “WE” have the ability to Save Countless Childhoods & Countless California Tax dollars, to the sum of Billions of dollars! AB 1133 will drastically reduce the hospital re-admission rate; and a preeminent saving in state funds will result from the fact that historically 90% of our nurses adopt the children that they have restored to health.
