Health & Wellness Fund

In response to a growing need within the lesbian community, the L-Fund’s Health and Wellness Fund was established in 2020. Through this fund we provide financial support for a variety of medical services and needs, including but not limited to: 

  • Medical supplies, hearing aids, eye glasses, dental procedures, walking aids; 
  • Health insurance; 
  • Out-of-pocket expenses for insured, uninsured, and underinsured lesbians; 
  • Mental Health services. 

The L-Fund is commitment to supporting diversity within our lesbian community.  We recognize that lesbians of color experience distinct mental, emotional, and physical strains and The L-Fund is sensitive to those needs.

Applicants must reside in the Coachella Valley and surrounding areas.

Questions should be directed to Jan Alden at Jan.Alden@L-Fund.org
