A Pasadena teacher contacted Families in Transition, a support program for homeless children in our school district. In addition to all the complications of being a homeless 5th grader, Albert had a toothache. One call to Young & Healthy and we were able to get him a dental appointment the same day we received his referral. The doctor was able to quickly fill the offending cavity and send him on his way. The teacher called the next day and said, “I can finally see his smile”.
Such an easy fix–when you link exactly the right two people together. There are still lots of issues for this family to deal with but Albert’s toothache isn’t one of them anymore.
