The Southern California Employee Association is proud to help its members in time of need. The Employee Assistance Fund, also called Friends Helping Friends, helps SCEA members provide short-term financial assistance to fellow members in times of crisis and hardship.

It is a good feeling to know that being a member of the SCEA offers a chance to lend a helping hand and the comfort that fellow SCEA members can provide support in turn.

“When my wife Rose lost her battle with cancer, I thought it was impossible to get through another day without her. Having three children ages 4, 7 and 9 made me realize that I needed to go on and to do what was best for the kids. The donation I received from my fellow SCEA members helped pay the expenses of bringing my mother here to help us. Your help could not have come at a better time. SCEA is a wonderful organization and my family and I will always be grateful for the help we received!”
