Gary Barg - Editor-in-chief An Interview with Bob Goen

Bob Goen joined Entertainment Tonight in April 1993 as a correspondent and weekend anchor, and was tapped as substitute anchor shortly thereafter.  On May 31, 1996, he took his place along with Mary Hart as anchor until he retired from the show in 2004. 
Bob has been a great supportor of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado, which grants the wishes of local children with life-threatening illnesses, through the annual celebrity golf tournament that bears his name.  He established the Bob Goen’s Children’s Charities, a national organization that raises funds for various national and local children’s charities in 2003.  

Bob spoke with Editor-in-Chief Gary Barg to discuss his charitable work and  his life as a family caregiver.

Gary Barg: Can you tell me about how you became involved in so many different charitable causes?

Bob Goen: I have been raising money for a golf tournament in Colorado for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Colorado for many years. In 2004 I started a new golf tournament, raising money for the Bob Goen’s Children’s Charities. We also raised funds for Make-A-Wish and for the KIM Foundation, an organization that deals with abused kids and educates their parents, and then for a group called the Successive Six in Vale Valley, Colorado where they deal with after-school care for at-risk kids...continued

I am currently caring for my fiancé who has an SSI case pending. I have two daughters and he has one who stays with us three to five days out of the week. He is not able to work and I only have a part-time job while going to school full-time online. I am trying to find the right people to talk to about getting assistance and becoming his permanent chore services provider/caregiver. He has no current doctor because he does not have health insurance, so he goes to CNS in Pontiac, Michigan for his treatments. We both have open DHS cases and receive food; I get medical and child care for my children.
It is not currently possible for me to meet all the requirements needed by my children and my fiancé with me working outside of the home. If you could help me with the information I need, or direct me to the right people, I would highly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
