Hi Anonymous

I suggest you start with the 211 service for your county. I found the link for you: http://www.211riversidecounty.org/Client/InformRiverside/

211 is a nationwide program that lists local assistance programs of every sort: low cost medical, food banks, emergency financial assistance and housing. Go to the site and if you can't find what you are looking for, call and ask. These programs are usually at least partially funded by the United Way, so you could check with them, too. In addition, most hospitals have indigent programs and many states offer free cancer screening tests if you meet specific criteria.

Hope this helps. Good luck to you.
