“I was with CILS when the first ICAN partnership was formed in 2004.  Eight years later I am privileged  to have coordinated the program for the past four years.  The amount of money returned to our community increases each year, this year by over $30,000!  Special thanks also goes to our ICAN Advocates who help us make this program so accessible.” – Angela Medrano, Escondido Staff Attorney
