Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We believe that we have an obligation and duty to help those in need. The children that we work with did nothing to deserve the medical hardships that they experience daily, but they all deserve our help. For those of us who have been blessed with healthy lives, it is difficult to imagine the life altering effect that chronic diseases and injuries have on children and their caregivers. A parent frequently ends up having to leave their job so that they can provide the required level of care. This puts a financial strain on the families which leads to the inability to pay for needed room and home upgrades. Hospital visits and doctor appointments become routine. Days confined to the home, away from peer social interactions, are commonplace. Life will always be different for these families, but we are here to provide support.

Welcome Home Angel exists to provide relief to the lives of these children and their families through aesthetic changes, structural modifications, and emotional support. When possible, we refer the families to additional organizations that might be able to provide further assistance. We also seek to involve groups or clubs that can help bring joy and excitement into the lives of the children. In kind donations are actively acquired, and in doing so, the value of monetary donations is doubled. Our approach leads to a more comprehensive form of involvement that maximizes our impact.

Today Welcome Home Angel, Inc. has brought joy and comfort to over 35 children and their families within a 25-mile radius of Wilmington, NC, by renovating bedrooms, bathrooms, and other living spaces within the homes of chronically ill or injured children. Renovations allow for a safer, happier place in which these children can focus on healing, rather than their obstacles.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
