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.

How Many More Angels Must We Send Back To Heaven?

How many more Angels must we send back to heaven?
How many more Angels must we send back to heaven?

To Our Loyal and Dedicated Supporters,

In 2009, Within LA County Alone, More Than 268 Infants and Children Died in Foster Care, How Many More “Angels” Must We Send Back To Heaven?

Due to the shocking fact in the above statement, the founder of Angels In Waiting, Linda West- Conforti RN urgently sought the help from a well-known legal advocate for foster children within LA County. The activist was Linda Wallace- Pate, an Attorney at law who has represented foster children in LA County for over four decades. After she was privy to LA county's death toll for foster care infants and children. We quickly joined forces, and met with key people within the community to address these shocking statistics. Too many of these foster care infants, and children who were passed back into heaven, were special needs infants and children, these angels were placed into inappropriate foster homes, their foster parents were poorly trained and ill- equipped to address their special needs. They resided in neighborhoods that were greatly underserved by available county resources due to the new budget restraints. If Angels In Waiting’s Nurse program would have been utilized in LA County, the number of dead foster care infants and children would have been drastically reduced. Linda West -Conforti and Linda Wallace- Pate approached, UCLA, Charles Drew University and CDU School of Nursing with our lifesaving and innovative nursing outreach program. Both UCLA and Charles Drew University are now seeking federal grants, to implement our Angels In Waiting Nursing Recruitment Program into their community to address the dire needs of their forgotten population of foster care infants and children who reside in their own backyard. Please, continue to support our noble cause. Furthermore, please place our widget from Global Giving's website onto your social networking site to help support our cause. For our goal is to implement our lifesaving program throughout our nation. Please, Together We Can Save Countless Childhoods" by promoting Angels In Waiting's Widgets.

“How many angels must we pass back to heaven, when on this earth we can help transform their precious lives today?

Sincerely,

Linda West –Conforti RN

AUTISM IN USA IS NOW AT A CRITICAL STATUS

All eyes on Autism Please
All eyes on Autism Please

How Common is Autism? For many years autism was rare - occurring in just five children per 10,000 live births. However, since the early 1990's, the rate of autism has increased exponentially around the world with figures as high as 60 per 10,000. Boys outnumber girls four to one. In 2007, the Centers for Disease Control reported that 1 in 150 children is diagnosed with autism. **New 2009 CDC reports 1 out of every 110 children, and several other respectable autism foundations has statistics as high as * 1 out ever 91 children (1 out of every 60 boys) is diagnosed with autism. The world is facing a pandemic of a different source. The most puzzling thing about autism is how much we don't know about autism. This is why our foundation; Autism Resource Interventions an affiliate of Angels in Waiting a 501(c)3 foundation has embarked upon an expansive website, providing early intervention therapies, and a resource information for families across our nation. Families will be able to communicate with train therapists and healthcare providers through Skype. Interact with other parents who have children that are on the spectrum to exchange pertinent information, which seems to be helping their autistic child cope in a social world. Through extensive research, we will link families, and practitioners, through the convoluted maze of autistic websites,and navigate them to websites that are informative and helpful. Why we have made a drastic change from our original platform request for funding because we understand; Age and early intervention therapies has a direct impact on outcome--typically, the earlier a child is treated, the better the prognosis will be. In recent years there has been a marked increase in the percentage of children who can attend school in a typical classroom and live semi-independently in community settings. However, the majority of autistic persons remain impaired in their ability to communicate and socialize. Our goal is to reach out through the Internet and social networking sites and reach families that need early intervention therapies. ARI will provide these therapies in the comfort of our clients home and help direct families to health care professionals that are trained in autism identification and treatment modalities within their geographical area.

Thank you for supporting our mission, in light of the current statistics on autism, and innovative technologies such as Skype. Our foundation decided to not only reach out to families that have children on the spectrum in our own neighborhood but to reach out to families with children that are on the spectrum in all neighborhoods. Our website s will be launched- up and running by March 24th 2010. Our current domain names are; www.Helpingautisticchildren.com, www.helpingautismchildren.com www.autismhelponline.com www.theautismwhisper.com feel free to log on and to see our webmaster at work.

Sincerely,

Linda West - Conforti RN
