Sunshine Angels is an amazing group. Children come to us from CPS ages 0-17 with a bag packed containing little to no clothing. Most of the time their clothing is in bad shape and not fit to wear or they come to us with just the clothes on their back. Sunshine Angels has brought joy to many children with their kind and generous donations of clothing, hygiene products, toys, stuffed animals, books, cd's, dvd's, Easter baskets and the list goes on and on. Every visit is like Christmas and you cannot imagine the smiles from ear to ear. What a blessing this organization has been to our agency and children.
The Sunshine Angels are a 501(c) 3 charitable organization that exists to support and enrich the lives of foster children in the care of Sunshine Residential and Group Homes, in Maricopa County, AZ. Currently there are 250 children from ages 6-18 residing in the 24 facilities of Sunshine Homes.
Our vision is to show unconditional love to these children to instill within them the confidence and self-esteem needed to overcome many obstacles on their journey from foster care to independent living. The Sunshine Angels have been volunteering for the children of Sunshine Residential and Group Homes since 1999, officially becoming a charitable organization in March 2006. We serve the foster children of Sunshine through outreach and positive interaction to promote their health and healing.
Our mission is to bring about greater success in these children’s ability to achieve positive life skills and become wholesome citizens, through our outreach which includes providing birthday, graduation and holiday recognition, assistance with clothing, computers and school supplies, summer camp and other wholesome recreational opportunities, and helping the foster children transition to independent living upon reaching age 18, when they are discharged from the foster care system.
Our goals include maintaining our current giving, adding a college scholarship, and increasing logistical and financial support to foster youth at age 18, when they must move out of group home care and into independent living.
