Project Report | Jul 11, 2016
AIW Bill is going National!

By Linda West Conforti | Founder

Exciting news for Angels in Waiting!
Under the reign of President Lyndon B Johnson, a program was created that would allow nurses to provide medically fragile foster children quality care from the comfort of their own homes. Though this program has been in existence for over 50 years, it lied dormant in every state. In 2013, Angels in Waiting resurrected this bill in the state of California, and today thousands of nurses are providing care for these medically fragile foster children through Medi-Cal. 
Recently, a loving woman from the great state of Texas inquired about her ability to provide this type of loving home care in her state. Sadly we needed to inform her that this program is dormant in her state. Well, this wonderful woman decided to take it upon herself to jump through the hoops in order to ensure this program in Texas! 
Lori Mendoza, working in conjunction with a state represenitive, is spearheading the Angels in Waiting bill in the Lone Star state! With AIW's knowledge and her dedication to this wonderful cause, we are so hopeful to see AIW's bill on the legislative docket this fall! 
If you live in the state of Texas, please keep an eye out for AIW when it comes time to vote! With your help, so many Angels in Waiting will find loving homes to provide for them!
