Mission: Soldiers’ Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. Founded by the mother of two American soldiers, we have hundreds of thousands of volunteers assisting veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways. Soldiers’ Angels responds quickly to requests for support and provides individualized, immediate assistance.  It is a “one-on-one, get it done quickly” organization.  Our volunteer Angels at home adopt individual deployed troops and stay in touch throughout their deployment. Wounded soldiers and their families are asked what they need, and Soldiers’ Angels responds in a hundred different ways:  voice-activated computers; financial assistance for loved ones to stay with their wounded family member; phone cards to call relatives who can’t visit as often as they wish, etc.  Both the organization and the program have grown, but, unfortunately, the needs of our deployed soldiers and their families are growing even faster. This is especially true for our young men and women who are wounded. The government is providing first-class medical care for our wounded soldiers, but it will never be able to provide all of what they deserve and so many services desperately needed by their families.  Soldiers’ Angels works closely with the Department of Defense, the nation’s major veterans groups and a variety of other military support organizations to make sure these brave young men and women who are being helped.

I found Soldier's Angels almost 3 years ago. It was one of the best things I could have done. Not only is it a great personal experience connecting with the other angels, but the soldiers I have adopted have changed my life. It is so fulfilling to work with individual soldiers and learn their life stories. While it is critical that we help support the military as a whole, to have a face and contact info of a citizen back home can make or break a Soldier's deployment. What Soldier's Angels does is priceless.

The women that run this organization are always there. They are quick to respond to any questions or issues you may have. I recommend them all the time.

I have been amazed at how they care for our Veterans. They provide patient meals in the VA hospitals, distribute care and comfort items to the patients,

Working with veterans has given me more joy throughout my career than any other population. To have a group like Soldiers' Angels go above and beyond for them is beyond words. They put together an exceptional Thanksgiving Dinner for my veterans who were unable to be with family at that time. I was able to take them to spend the day with this wonderful group of volunteers. If that wasn't enough, they send my veterans back with so much leftover food for the ones who weren't able to make it! This is such a caring and amazing organization. Thank you so much!

I am so grateful for the Soldier's Angels, it is wonderful to know that someone cares about the Viet Nam Vets and other returning Vets. The Soldier's Angels is a wonderful program without a doubt. No one seems to understand what we feel as forgotten Vets but thanks to the Soldier's Angel but I come out to show appreciation.

Thank you so much
