Patients and their families may believe that they've had a little "Good Luck"
when Angel Interfaith Network is able to meet an urgent need, but we all know that it is really aware and compassionate social workers, dedicated AIN staff and volunteers, and all of you donors who provide funds and goods that have made life a little easier.
  
  Those We Serve:
It was a difficult process for Susana and her family to remove her mother's life support system and let her go.  The social worker alerted a chaplain who offered support and helped with funeral assistance. Raquel made a home visit and delivered Teen Gift Baskets that teenagers from Trinity Presbyterian Church had created and donated to Angel Interfaith Network. The girls received them with humble smiles.
   
Baby Anthony was born at LAC+USC and was waiting to be placed with a family member due to his mother's drug addiction. The family was not prepared and had nothing for the baby. Angel Interfaith Network was able to provide a baby basket and a brand-new bassinet provided by Shelter Partners, a new partner in our network.
 
Melissa came through our infusion clinic with multiple health issues, some attributed to her weight. Homeless, all she had were the clothes on her back. The social worker called requesting clothing size 4X, a warm jacket, hygiene items and a blanket. Thanks to our donors, AIN was able to meet her needs.
 
 
Network Partners:  
 
Sustaining Angels are individuals and organizations who have committed to making regular monthly or annual donation to Angel Interfaith Network. Their consistent giving enables us to know that we will be able to meet the urgent needs that are referred to us. Most of our Sustaining Angels have found it easiest to sign up on our web page ( www.angelinterfaith.net) and have PayPal forward their donations monthly. They are kept in a designated AIN account at St. Camillus Center, whose 501c3 makes the contributions income tax deductible.
            
Artist John August Swanson designed our logo and has given us permission to send a frame-able 5 x 7-inch Circle of Angels print to all of our new angels. If you aren't one already, we hope that you will enroll to be a part of our circle of Sustaining Angels.
