Do NOT forget that a person can call 2-1-1 (Much like calling 9 1 1 on your phone).

This service will ask you a few questions about what you need then match you with places that can help you.

It's saved me on occasions!!

Thank you for the info. Angel Food Ministries is under Federal investigation for fraud. The owners have their own jets several million dollar salaries and use the Charity tax guidelines to make their money. Sad but it has been in the paper several times. I would not put a penny in their pocket.

Wow, I had no idea.... here is an article I found about it:

Angel Food Ministries investigation was for someone associated with the ministry not the entire organization.  It is still going strong and is a great resource for many.

Our church youth group helps out there as an outreach project and now many families from our church have used it when they are in need.  I

Hi! I am new at this so I hope I am doing this right. I am a singlle mom in a situation where I have no insurance for my son or myself. I can't sign up for Medi-Cal. My son needs to see a doctor and dentist, I also need to see both. I have heard that there is a program for free cancer prevention programs but I can't find what it is called. Can anyone help me out????
