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?
