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.

Angels In Waiting 's Assembly Bill: AB1133

Our Bill
Our Bill

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 CaliforniaBillions 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.

THE WARM HEART OF WINTER... 

Angels In waiting fourth quarter report
Heart Of The Matter

As we approach the darkest day of winter, December 21st, and become enveloped in this heart of darkness, the interplay between light and darkness becomes quite apparent.  This is indeed a time of renewal, but spiritual uplift cannot transpire without first going through a dark night of the soul.  It is quite true that the heart is a lonely hunter and must find its own way through a time when light diminishes but presages a period of new illumination.  Angels In Waiting finds itself in such a point in its arc through the year.  We have recently found ourselves uplifted by great potentiality, but in our Icarian flight we have also seen our hopes melted by a number of obstructions.  We do believe that we are on the verge of a number of exciting breakthroughs that will strongly impact a number of hearts and lives.
Doctors And Angels 

Angels In Waiting completed filming of "The Doctors' Show" in November.  The show will air on Thursday, December6th at 2 PM Pacific Time on CBS.  The doctors on the show were quite receptive and very generous in their praise of the organization.  They completely opened their hearts to AIW as did the people who were involved in the technical aspects of the show.  We believe that the show will fill the wings of AIW and begin to give our organization the recognition that is essential in soaring to new levels of societal and financial receptivity.  
Singing From The Heart   
AIW also recorded a commercial last month that has several of the children singing.  The producers of the commercial have stated that they plan to make extensive usage of this commercial that could play on prime time television.  When this screening transpires, it will be excellent, additional exposure for our organization.  
Village Apothecary   
Our apothecary boutique in Lake Arrowhead Village continues to expand and has added new merchandise, including designer nurses scrubs that are becoming increasingly popular.  We are also creating an ever-increasing following among the local residents. 
The future will undoubtedly hold many exciting gifts for Angels In Waiting, and we thank again our "spirit of Christmas"benefactors for their marvelous generosity and holiday hearts.
