Laguna Beach Community Clinic

The mission of the Laguna Beach Community Clinic is to provide excellent medical care regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.

The patients we serve are at risk of foregoing early medical care of conditions, which would negatively affect their morbidity rates and also burden the healthcare system in the long run. Their needs to access healthcare include finding:

· A registered Medi-Cal provider. Families enrolled under the Affordable Care Act are challenged to find a provider that accepts Medi-Cal.

· A provider which accepts all uninsured patients without restriction. Those who don’t qualify for government subsidized insurance or choose to opt-out may be turned away from medical providers that cap the number of uninsured patients or visits. 55% of LBCC patients do not have health insurance.

· Care that is accessible linguistically and geographically.

· High quality care.

LBCC meets each of the patient needs discussed above. We accept families with Medi-Cal health insurance. The clinic also accepts patients without insurance. Patient payments are based on a sliding fee scale and ability to pay; for those who cannot pay, LBCC covers the entire visit cost. Inviting patients to pay what they can afford preserves dignity; affordable care helps patients access care consistently. We have several providers who are bi-lingual and speak Spanish fluently. LBCC is the only clinic in south Orange County to offer the full range of primary care, weekend hours, and walk-in availability.

Max's Love Project, Inc.

Helping SuperKids thrive against the odds with fierce foods, whole-body wellness strategies, and integrative medicine.

MaxLove Project is a 501c3 nonprofit organization with a mission to increase the quality of life and reduce health risks for all children surviving cancer, both in treatment and beyond. We empower families fighting childhood cancers and related life-threatening conditions with quality of life care, fierce foods, whole-body wellness resources, education and research. We believe that true health starts when families are empowered to be active partners in their child’s healing.


At MaxLove Project, we invest in hope. Today, nearly 80% of all children diagnosed with some cancers survive beyond 5 years. While this is great news for many, the fight for most is never over. Researchers now know that the treatments that save lives also increase later risks for serious, life-threatening illnesses. These health risks are lifelong, increase with age, and can result in early death. This is why we’re kickstarting our own wellness revolution, one specifically for kids and families fighting cancer and the lifelong effects of cancer and related life-threatening treatments.

Inspired by SuperMax Wilford, a brain cancer fighting superhero, MaxLove Project is a volunteer-powered, grassroots nonprofit organization founded to help SuperKids thrive against cancer and life-threatening conditions. We believe that all kids should have full access to every cancer-fighting tool available, including excellent nutrition and therapeutic resources such as acupuncture, physical activity, and healing narratives.

MaxLove Project’s programs and resources support families in the key areas of survivorship health. Each program focuses on several “super actions” for lifelong healthy survivorship. We are a community of dedicated change-makers who believe in the power of high quality integrative health care for all children.

RTH Stroke Foundation

The mission of the RTH Stroke Foundation is to eliminate stroke whenever and wherever possible. People suffer 795,000 strokes in the U.S. every year, 144,000 of which result in death.  Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death, and although most strokes occur to people 65 or older, stroke can attack people of any age or gender.

But experts in vascular medicine say that fully eight out of every ten strokes can be prevented. That means we have it in our power to reduce the annual incidence of stroke from 795,000 to less than 160,000, The key is awareness. Only a fraction of the American population understands the lifestyle and medical steps they need to take to keep them out of the high-risk stroke pool. Fewer than one in five can recognize the symptoms of a stroke at its onset.

The RTH Stroke Foundation aggressively pursues this under informed segment of our population. Every year we hold free stroke awareness seminars for several thousand attendees at which experts in the field explain what people have to do to reduce the likelihood of stroke. We conduct free diagnostic screenings for aneurysms, blood pressure, carotid narrowing and cholesterol. These screenings identify people at various stages of risk, including some whose lives may have been literally saved because they had no idea that they had an aneurysm or a severely restricted carotid. And we hold free monthly stroke support meetings to help stroke victims, their families and caregivers learn how to adjust to the stroke victim’s new normal.

The quest to reduce the incidence of stroke so drastically may seem Quixotic to some, but not to us. It’s the reason we come to work every day.

Southern California Hospice Foundation

Mission Statement
Our mission is to deliver a breadth of resources to caregivers, families and patients who are confronting the final stages of life.
 
Vision Statement:
Our vision is to open a loving home for the last stage that will serve the dying with dignity and compassion in Orange County, CA .
 

For some, their last moments will be spent alone. For others, they have family but no one to provide continuous care. It is for these people that we initiated the Heavenly Home Project, offering an alternative to institutional care in the final days, weeks or months of life by providing round the clock caregiving services.

 

Now in the third year of our capital campaign, our Heavenly Home will be a residential home where terminally ill patients can end life’s journey in a comfortable home-like setting. It offers an important option for people who may not have family or friends who can care for them.

 

The most important thing is that no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
