Rayleen is a new mother who applied for paid family leave but did not receive her first check. Her partner then applied to the Employment Development Department (EDD), but their EDD card was stolen, and they could no longer afford rent. Rayleen became an active participant in DCFS’s Prevention and Aftercare/Strength-Based Community Change Doula/Case Navigation program, which receives Measure H funding. She has been able to receive childbirth education, lactation education, prenatal support, birth support, and postpartum support. She was also connected to DPSS’ CalFresh program, as well as rental relief and other benefits. “Many people don’t know there is help out there,” Rayleen said. “You have to look for it and keep looking until you find the help you need.”
