Community Care

Know someone who does not have access to a computer or smartphone? Perhaps now would be a good time to give them a call or send a card, just to let them know you are thinking of them. If you know someone who might want a DVD copy of the service, let us know!⠀

If you have any questions, need assistance, or would like to volunteer to help with our homebound folks, please contact: Anne Premer (email) or (310)393-8258 ext 103.
