This organization is a SCAM!!! I have never worked with such a person in my life. For someone that is supposed to be helping people in the name of the Lord but yet they are the most ungrateful and rude set of people. If you ask for donations then you should be satisfied with what you get. I take real offense to this especially when what was donated and the service that was offered was top notch and truly came from the heart. If you are who you say you are then you would be a little more appreciative. I have heard more horror stories than stories of you helping people. I have seen what some people received from you and really believe you keep most of the donations for yourself. Most of the donations you ask for to help yourselves not the people who you claim to be helping.

these comments were made by 1 family & we will pray for them hard they were turned down for help by many charities,including ours because they were not truthful & truelly did not need help from any charity.We have prayed for them but unfortunately cannot remove their posts,the posts were all from 1 household,1 family who need our prayer desperately.We cannot disclose the whole story but we were told by agencies in their area that this family was under investigation & that we were NOT to help in any way.We help 1000s of families each year & 1000s of children each Christmas & are blessed to do so,we love what we do,the Lord is in Control & we will keep helping for years to come because we truelly love what we do.We are all volunteers,our charity/Church is registered with the IRS & we even voluntarily report our donations etc to the IRS & file each year,being a Church charity we are not required to do so but we believe in full disclosure & openness.Please disregard these horrible cruel postings & pray for the family who posted them as we have.Thank you & God Bless!!

I know this person who runs this site from a REAL chartiy site who actually does help people. THis site run by this lady is a fake and she is a big liar. She has promised me and a friend of mine the last 3 weeks that our sons would have something under the tree for them. Well here it is 3 days before Christmas ans nothing has arrived. All i hear is excuses, that is when you can get her to even answer you. She will not answer her phone and you have to beg for an email answer back. I can take getting hurt or lied to, but you cross the line when you hurt and deceive innocent children. THis woman and her so called site should be banned from teh internet. Scams like this are not right. People do not apply for help with her. Her and her husband will use you and most of the time they keep the donations for themselves. And i beleive the good lady and her husband know who they are. PRetending on a real charity site that you are abused by your husband when the truth is you both are happily married and scamming people and lieing to them. SHAME ON YOU!!!

Ok people enough is enough there was a group of obvious scammers trying to get help from our charity who had lied about their income,living situation etc & we had to turn them down for assistance because they literally cussed our our volunteers on a daily basis demanding Christmas for their children which they didnt even have custody of & and were banned from seeing.Every charity will run into this situation at one time or another ,unfortunately, & we deal with it by banning them from any type of assistance ever again so they begin to slander & defame our good name to get back at us. We have IRS paperwork & proof that we help 100s of real families every year,100s of children every Christmas & are a real charity EIN number 27-1972461 which can be verified by the IRS. Please consider the source of these posts as they were actually sisters with horrible attitudes who cussed our volunteers HORRIBLY demanding everything that they could get from our charity & who had received help from Toys for Tots as well as another charity & were trying to take away from actual families in TRUE need who were not receiving Christmas help from anywhere else.We have to verify with other charities because unfortunately some people do take advantage of the system & we have a right to refuse help to anyone that we believe is being deceitful or who is disrespecting our volunteers as badly as these woman were. There is no way for any charity to stop the horrible cruel comments that people are allowed to make but we can explain them & provide proof that this is not a true comment. We are a very hard working group of volunteers who truelly are working to make a difference & help people who truelly need help,the woman who posted this comment originally told us that she had a 3 yr old girl & 7 yr old son & we will definately pray for her & her sister that they will heal their hearts & be forgiven for what they are trying to do to this great charity. Thank you & GOD BLESS, Angels with Faith Ministries

Do not trust the people running this!They have helped a few, but also help themselves a lot with donated items that were intended for others. They have furnished their homes, etc;,and made many promises they did not keep.According to the founder, her husband is mentally abusive, yet he is the Reverend Michael Tuck she speaks of that helps with the ministry and holds church services at their homes. I wish I had never found them on Google!I have read the return comment from this charity, I am an individual, not a family, I donated items to them, and found out they went to family members, not the people that were in need.Since that time,more people have been told of help they would receive, and did not,and there is no excuse in the world for out and out lying to the public.I personally will never donate to them again,and the one review,Avis, is the lady running this ministries mother-in-law.Twisted & sick people, trying to hurt innocent people with their lies, ad deception,then they try to turn it around and make it look like the person writing the review is lying.So be it, but God knows the truth, and he knows the lies they have told,and he knows how many they have hurt and used. I beg of anyone to never,ever, donate money to this charity,as it is probably not going to make it to the people it is intended for, but their pockets.

Just to be fair & let the public know teh WHOLE truth about teh family who made this hateful comment every once in a while we are asked for assistance by a family who we CANNOT help due to the fact that they are being deceptive in their application & also foul mouthed to our Christian volunteers,we TRUELLY do not like to turn ANYONE down for assistance but being a public charity it does happen at times,regrettably.We ask for prayer for this family & may GOD find HIS way into their hearts & souls that tehy will find their way in life without playing a system taht is put into place to help those in TRUE need,as this family was NOT.GOD BLESS,Angels With Faith Ministries Staff

these people are TRUE angels they really do what they say they are going to do! we have 2 little girls& were in a bad housing situation after my husbands mother& our family pastor were trying to mess with the girls in a bad way.We pressed charges but since both of us had just undergone life saving surgeries in the months prior had no means of getting a place to live.We tried dfcs& they wanted to take our girls from us,then several churches,united way,the red cross& NOONE had money to help us all of the shelters were full& we were basically living out of our almost dead car & were so afraid of losing our girls we were afraid to ask for help anywhere else& had NOWHERE to go.We were searching craigslist putting ads on at the library where we hung out during the day while the girls were in school & got a response back within about 15 minutes of placing teh ad for help from Lori at angels with faith ministries.They are located in Winder & we are in Lavonia so I didnt believe her much when she told me that they didnt have any donations coming in but to have Faith& she would work on it day& night & find us the help we needed,we didnt hear from her the next morning so I gave her a call(our prepaid free phone from teh government from safelink was running low on minutes)& she assured me that she was working on it& would get back to me asap.we waited& waited& hoped& prayed & had almost given up what little hope we had when she called.We had a small trailer to move into my husband just had to work on it for the first month rent which was fine we told her that would be ok& 3 days later they brought us a fridge.electric heaters,furnished it& brought the girls clothes,shoes,food,everything taht we needed& had to leave behind we had& my husband found a job building fences& also some other Angels that Lori lined up with us brought us more things & we were good& back on our feet by the next week! I don't know how she did it but she kept her word& restored our faith BIG TIME.Someday when we get ahead we definately want to help this real true ministry out.they didnt judge us,didnt make us fill out tons of paperwork only to deny us,only asked our first names& the girls sizes& what we liked to eat& they actually were going through a rough time themselves used the only money they had to drive the hour& 45 minutes to bring us everything& brought most of their own food to us& i know they must have done without so our girls could have& that is definately real love for strangers they had never met& it showed us taht tehy are not doing what they are doing for personal gain or recognition ebcause all they said when we told them thank you was GOD BLESS& to thank God because He is the one that made it possible.Imagine that giving up eating yourself to feed a strangers children AMAZING TRUE ANGELS!!!

My wife started this ministry because she loves to give& help people in need,she has been in their shoes& works very hard to make sure that everyone who contacts us for help is helped asap she is online or on the phone most of the day everyday since paing our fee to be allowed by the IRS to accept donations&give tax dedutcible receipts which she actually sold some of her own things to pay because people werent willing to donate or help without that tax deductible receipt.she did all of this after having 9 strokes& sometimes is very very sick but NOTHING stops her from helping!at Christmas we helped 28 families in total most of which we never met she just worked day& night to find them sponsors I am a preacher& I know that she is blessed by GOD with a calling to help& the gifts to be able to figure out how to build a website& complete all of the things it takes to be a non-profit ministry,we had 911 at our home the night of Dec 23rd because she over did it working so hard at Christmas helping&collecting donated items for kids in need for 5 hours she was in seizures from teh strokes but never quit the next moring she assured that every familiy who conatcted us for help got help& FINALLY Christmas night she rested with a huge smile on her face becasue she TRUELLY is an angel& truelly wants to help people in need or crisis!My mom also helps she is our other volunteer& is a cancer survivor but it doesnt stop her either I just wish everyone would think of others as much as my wife does this world would be a much better place!
