The family of a Bridgeport woman with disabilities is getting help from a local non-profit.
Amy's Angels stepped up to help the family of 36-year-old Amber Rogers after founder Bob Fiondella saw their story on News 12.
Rogers, who has muscular dystrophy and lives at home, needs specialized care around the clock.
Amber's mother and sister have been doing the care themselves for months due to a shortage of registered nurses caused by the pandemic.
Amy's Angels is now working with the family to help solve that problem and several others.
"Amy's Angels is certainly prepared to help the family out and do whatever we can do to ease their burden during these difficult times," said Fiondella, Amy's Angels founder and CEO.
"When I asked for help, they were there. They were there. Frank Recchia was there, News 12 was there, if it wasn't for them, none of this would be possible," said Venus Rogers.
Fiondella says Amy's Angels has given $1.3 million to people in need across the state since he started the organization seven years ago.
He is also trying to build awareness about Amy's Angels so he can help more people.
