We value our independence as a nation and as individuals, but we realize that there are those who are dependent on us to help meet their needs. Because of your support, Angel Interfaith Network can provide that important neighbor to neighbor support.
 
 
Network Partners: 
   
San Gabriel Presbytery had a Work Day at Westminster Gardens in June. A big thanks to everyone who so generously donated toiletry items for the Hygiene Kits AND to the great assembly team members who were careful to include a blessing in each kit (along with soap-shampoo-toothbrush-toothpaste-socks-washcloths-comb).
 
Every day people who are experiencing homelessness seek out the social workers and chaplains when they are discharged from the hospital, in need of the basic items in the Hygiene Kits. Elizabeth Gibbs Zehnder, LAC+USC chaplain and Angel Interfaith Network council member, delivered a car full of kits to our Gate House with a heart full of gratitude.
 
Those we serve:
Darin is a 3-year-old child with Down syndrome who is non-ambulatory. He had been abandoned by his mother and going into foster care. His social worker asked for 4T clothing, comfort toys and a sturdy stroller to help him in his new home environment. Angel Interfaith was pleased to meet his needs.
 
Phillip , a paraplegic, was seen in the Oncology Clinic. When he left the hospital to go into assisted living he had only the clothes he was wearing. His social worker called AIN. With your help, AIN was able to provide a box of Depends, clothing and a hygiene kit. Phillip was very appreciative.
 
New Website:
We are proud to announce our new and improved website.  Please visit AngelInterfaith.Net

We especially want to thank a generous Sustaining Angel who donated money to cover the cost of designing this new site, which is still under construction as we add more content.
