About Help Now! Advocacy Center
virtual organization, MEDFORD, OR 97501, US
Help Now! provides advice, support, and skilled negotiations to assist individuals and families in crisis.
In a nutshell, Help Now! performs critical crisis intervention for individuals who, because of financial, educational, intellectual, emotional, or cultural disadvantages, are unable to work through the crises they are facing on their own. Although we will help anyone who requires assistance, our focus populations are seniors, the disabled (including mentally ill), and minorities--populations that, due to factors endemic to these groups--frequently are unable to work through crisis situations as they arise. Our assistance may involve our trained advocate's solving the problem or resolving the dispute for the client, or it may, by assisting through "system navigation," involve our referring the client to another individual or organization uniquely positioned to address the client's problem or dispute. The network of "community partners" which we have established--professionals, businesspeople, and trades people, will frequently assist our clients at minimal or no fee in support of our philanthropic work. Help Now! is supported by donations and grants--we do not charge our mostly indigent clients any fees for the services we provide although they are free to make donations if they choose.
