Euthanasia Prevention Coalition: 12 Myths About Assisted Suicide and Medical Aid In Dying

‘medical-aid-in-dying’ (MAID)—also called physician assisted suicide (PAS). By whatever label we attach to it, this practice involves a physician’s prescribing a lethal drug for a patient with a putatively terminal illness who is requesting this “service.” Some form of MAID/PAS is now legal in 5 states and the District of Columbia.”

Health Insurance for Children

Dear Friends of Families,

As we look ahead to a start of summer and a new school year, I’m hoping you will help disseminate the linked educational brochures with your contacts across the state.  I’d welcome your ideas on how to get these into the hands of every family you serve—with whom you interact. 

English brochure

Spanish brochure

I’ve had some of the school nutritionists committed to helping with the distribution in some schools across the state; it would be wonderful if you would collaborate by placing them in your agency/centers and throughout appropriate places where parents and grandparents could see them.

This link will take you to an order form which can be completed requesting that I send you packets (100 in each).  They are “palm cards” which means you can use them in mailing (USPS) as well as display on site.

Looking forward to hearing from many of you!

Kind regards,


Norma Martí

Recycled Rides is a unique program in which insurers, collision repairers, paint suppliers, parts vendors and others collaborate to repair and donate vehicles to deserving individuals and service organizations in local communities throughout the country.

Over 1,000 vehicles have been donated through the National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program since its inception in 2007. Thanks to the efforts of many NABC members, the program’s ripple effect has made a positive difference in the lives of thousands of individuals who have received vehicles or benefited through the services provided by nonprofit organizations who have been recipients of Recycled Rides.

A New Vision for Helping Families

A New Vision for Helping Families

“The idea is simple. Assemble a team of stakeholders from many disciplines in a central location where they can offer intensive support to low-income families struggling to get ahead. EnVision Centers are specifically designed to help households achieve self-sufficiency through economic empowerment, educational advancement, character and leadership development, and health and wellness training. This is treating the patient.

Many of the services low-income families need already exist. EnVision Centers will bring together government and non-profit services together under one roof so that residents and communities can easily access them. By assembling programs in one space, HUD is leveraging existing funding and supportive services—whether its job training, mentorship, or health services—in a holistic manner.”
