Express Care has been helping me and my family for over 7 years now. When we came to USA we were at one point homeless and helpless because my father was shot during a store robbery where he worked. He was the only one financially supporting the family and with him in the hospital we did not have money to support ourselves. During this desperate time Express Care came in to help us with Financial needs, shelter, food, rental assistance, school supplies, transportation, and also provided translation help to the family as no one in the family spoke English then. After that they continued to help us in every aspect of life. Then on July 2009 my little sister was diagnosed with Cancer. Prior to her diagnosis for 7 months my sister suffered pain because the doctors failed to diagnose her cancer. During these 7 months my father did not do any job as he was going back and forth to the hospital for my sister’s mysterious abdominal pain. During this time Express Care helped us with monthly groceries and monthly financial assistance. When my sister was finally diagnosed with Cancer Express Care stepped us even more to provide their full support in every way they could. Express Care continues to help us up to this very day and is always there during my sister’s treatment for Cancer. After they helped us the very first time 7 years ago my entire family started to volunteer for them and we are still after 7 years volunteering for this organization because they are helping hundreds of families like my own and to help them help the community is our pleasure and honor because at one point we were in that same position as those families we are helping today. My family and I cannot thank them enough for they were always there with us like family members and never made us feel like we were alone. Thank you to Express Care and God Bless.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
If this organization had 10 million bucks it would help individuals because “Self-Sufficient” by providing them trainings and then placing them into employment in fields like health care workforce. Because when you make someone self-sufficient you help them help themselves provide for their family without relying on the support of others. That is what Express Care has been doing and with 10 million dollars they will only continue to expand their services to reach more areas where people are suffering.
