Community Foundation of Mendocino County
Angel Fund

For the past five years, RCMS has been the recipient of a small Angel Fund block grant from the Community Foundation of Mendocino County.

Monies from the Angel Fund grant are designed to be used to give community residents - most frequently seniors and the disabled - a helping hand-up in the area of healthcare.

An RCMS RN/Case Manager and a member of the RCMS management team review all requests for assistance. Typically grants from The Angel Fund block grant are used to help provide long-distance transportation for out of town medical appointments, purchase of medical support equipment, uncovered prescriptions, etc.

For more information about the Community Foundation of Mendocino County, go to

Requests for assistance through the RCMS Angel Fund grant should be directed to Richard Henrikson, RCMS, RN/Case Manager at 707-884-9069.
