Here to Serve is dedicated to Silvio and Bryan Quintas, Jessie Mastan, and Paul Alindog who exhibited unimaginable courage, faith and dignity in their life-and-death health battles. Because of these valiant warriors Here to Serve strives to make a difference in the lives of individuals, families and their caregivers in medical crisis.
We believe families with a critically-ill child should not have to lose their job, health, home or enter into bankruptcy to care for their child during a medical crisis. Therefore, we mobilize people and resources to meet daily living requirements of families who do not qualify for government assistance.
Here to Serve envisions people inspired and mobilized to carry each other’s burdens during times of crisis, where guidance and assistance is offered freely by people and organizations that collaborate to compassionately respond to those navigating life-threatening health crises. We seek to demystify the plethora of service organizations and to make them easily accessible, thereby easing the journey of those in medical crisis.
Our services begin at the moment of crisis when doing research into options is the hardest to accomplish and handling basic human needs of self and family are the most challenging. Here to Serve acts as an intercessor and navigator demystifying the plethora of nonprofit, health care, professional, and business services available. We mobilize a support community to assist with meals, running errands, child care, grocery shopping, household chores, yard work, caring for pets and transportation.
Support continues for a period of six months, after which a reassessment is conducted to determine continuation, reduction, or conclusion of services.
