100% of AIW's Donations Goes Directly Towards Our Cause!
Our founder witness first-hand the miracles occurring through the hearts and hands of nurses, and soon realized the Angels In Waiting were not only the infants and children in our failing foster care system waiting for a loving, dedicated nurse to care for them. The Angels In Waiting were also the numerous nurses who lend their wings to help America's most venerable population. Angels In Waiting Nurse-Foster Provider program has a 90% adoption rate among our noble nurses.
On October 2nd, 2013, California Governor Brown signed Angels In Waiting’s Assembly Bill into California law. The state bill will require that, when determining the placement of a foster child who is medically fragile, “Priority Consideration” will be given to placement with a foster parent who is an independent nurse provider, as defined in state law; who provides health services under the federal Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment- Private Duty Nursing program. AB1133 became California State law on January 1st, 2014.
One of Angels In Waiting’s objectives is to create more State and Federal laws to help implement our Nurse-Foster Provider program Nationwide. Secondly, we would like to help bring awareness to and address the growing population of medically fragile foster care infants and children in America. Your Help Is Needed; Together We Can Greatly Improve Our Foster Care System And Save Tens-Of-Thousands Of America’s Foster Care Preemies, Infants, Children, And Youths.
AIW's authored Assembly Bill 1133 and California State law, is now soaring onto the federal level.
AIW's founder Linda West-Conforti RN, in 2005, resurrected a dormant federally funded program. This program was created by Lyndon Baines Johnson in 1965, over 50 years ago! Linda proudly picked up LBJ's program and carried his program into California's State Capital. AIW's bill received overwhelming bi-partisan support and has been sough after by numerous States. This February, a children advocacy group approached AIW to take AB1133 onto the federal level... Never underestimate the power of a nurse, because miracles do occur through the hearts and hands of nurses.
