What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Angel Foundation helps families in temporary crisis due to a life threatening illness or catastrophic event by matching them with businesses to meet practical needs and give them hope and keep them self-sufficient. Since 2006, the Foundation Angel Program has served over 850 families in a variety of ways. We match families with businesses as well as provide financial assistance to meet their practical needs such as paying a utility bill, a car payment and even their mortgage or rent payment. We also created the Junior Angels Program to raise up our children to be community leaders. We provide them with volunteer opportunities throughout the school year to get a better understanding of the needs in our community and the organizations that are filling the needs. They create projects to help make our community a better place to live. They earn community service hours and are gaining leadership skills that will make them a better community leader.
