The Gift of Help

Angel View Outreach

There’s no greater challenge than being the single parent of a child with a disability. Conflicting stressors make functioning nearly impossible for those without basic life skills.

This July, we’re adding a Family Stabilization component to our Outreach Program for children with disabilities. Our bilingual outreach specialists will provide critical training on calendaring healthcare appointments and arranging transportation, sharing time and energy with all children in the household, and budgeting/shopping to enable better food choices.

Jamie

Jaime’s Story

A frantic mother of two lost her vital records in a fire. Her son Jaime, 6, has a severe form of spina bifida, a type of birth defect. He needed prescriptions refilled, but without her Medi-Cal card and information, the pharmacy couldn’t fill them.

Angel View Outreach helped her navigate the system to reinstate her benefits. We also helped her access resources, enrolled Jaime in our mileage reimbursement program so he wouldn’t miss important appointments with his specialists, and used a mini-grant to cover the gap cost of medication he needed right away. Helping kids avoid medical emergencies is a key program goal.
