Angel Interfaith Network (AIN) partners with L.A. County + USC Healthcare Network to meet unique physical and
spiritual needs of patients and families with neighbor to neighbor support.
“Seek the welfare of the city. . . For in its welfare you will find your welfare.” Jeremiah 29:7
To do this, we:
Respond quickly with donated funds, goods and services to
urgent needs identified by health care staff
Bring material support directly to our neighbors’ homes and
stay in touch until the crisis is past
Find local resources to assist with additional needs
Calls for help come from social workers and chaplains at LAC+USC Healthcare Network.

Angel Interfaith Network Harvest of Love
It’s not too soon to be thinking about Fall!
Please be part of a Harvest of Love for Angel interfaith Network in the month of October (or whenever it fits your calendar). You (and your friends and neighbors) can do a local fundraiser or donation to continue the work of Angel Interfaith Network with patients and families at LAC + USC Medical Network identified by chaplains and social workers as having unique and unmet needs. This distributed community wide effort will take the place of our October luncheon.
Our goal is $20,000 in new financial support by October 31, 2014. That’s 20 groups or individuals raising an average of $1000 or 40 groups or individuals raising an average of $500 (and that’s averaging—so there is room for smaller and larger gifts.) Our parallel goal is to build the community of AIN supporters throughout Los Angeles County. So find some friends and put the fun in FUNdraising. We can support you with informational brochures, a speaker or a display. Or if your event is open to the public we can post it on FaceBook or put it in our e-news.
Let Belinda@AngelInterfaith.net know your plans and your needs.

We hope you are part of our circle of Sustaining Angels.

Featured Client Story:
Not a One-Way Street
Maria thought her family was complete with five children. Her youngest was already ten, so the baby things were long gone. Then the twins arrived. AIN helped with baby baskets, gently used bassinets, a double stroller and car seats. We have an ongoing relationship with her and her family and sometimes help with Pampers when things are tight. But it’s not a one-way street. Maria gratefully donates baby clothes as the twins outgrow them. She took such good care of the bassinets and car seats so that when she returned them to us we were able to pass them on to other children. She’s currently using cribs and bigger car seats and expects to pass them along when the twins outgrow them as well. This is the spirit of Neighbor to Neighbor support that characterizes Angel Interfaith Network. We all have something to give, even when we’ve been on the receiving end.
Your support makes it possible for families like Maria’s to have the help they need when they need it and often they respond by being part of the network of support for the next family.
