I been a volunteer and now board member with Angel Covers for nearly 10 years. It is difficult to find non-profits these days that contribute nearly 96% of donations every year to their programming. Angel Covers is a small but mighty organization that continues to stay focused. The images attached reflect happy faces of children that have directly benefited from the organization.
Humble Hearts, a school and home in Kenya, that now serves 300+ children on a shoestring budget is one of the programs of focus. Having personally visited 2 years ago I know that the work Angel Covers does with these children is used to provide these children with an education, something no one can ever take from them, feed them and love them.
As a woman and a mother of a young girl, I can't imagine worrying about her being married off at 12 or 13 because the family can't afford to feed and cloth her. The image of Zerong is one of hope - she can continue to go to school and become an educated woman and hopefully marry when she wants.
Children in this Huabei, China orphanage receive much needed vitamins through donations made to Angel Covers.
Working with Angel Covers makes me remember to take for granted my education, the food I eat consistently every day, the roof over my head and the medical care I can afford. Angel Covers brings hope to children around the world.
I discovered Angel Covers about 10 years ago. I was immediately impressed with the Director, Kari Fillmore. She is dedicated and works tirelessly for child. I was also interested in the organization because nearly all of donations go towards programs. VERY few non-profits can say that. I began as a volunteer doing whatever Kari needed and have grown into serving as a board member.
This summer my daughter and I traveled with Kari and one of her children to Kenya to look in on and work at Humble Hearts. Humble Hearts is just one example of a program Angel Covers supports. It is an excellent example of the organization's mission being carried out. They strive to provide nutrition, housing, medical and educational needs so they can grow into their potential.
I highly recommend this GREAT non-profit!
I have been a volunteer and board member for this organization for many years and continue to be pleased with the on-going dedication of all involved. The children that are supported are grateful and are able to make significant strides in improving their lives. They strive to be the best they can be and they see that people care about them and want the best for them. Knowing that Angel Covers uses almost all the donations it receives to support the children is even more reason to support this organization. How many of us can say that all/almost all dollars they donate goes to actually support the charitable mission of an organization, which happens with Angel Covers (no one is paid including the Executive Director).
Started as a volunteer for Angel Covers a couple years ago as I was so impressed with Kari, the Executive Director's passion for children and ensuring their basic needs were met so they can become the best they can be. This organization puts all resources toward children and the volunteers are amazing with the biggest hearts and dedication I have ever seen. I am proud to be a small part of such an incredible organization with a small budget but makes a huge impact.
I have supported Angel Covers for years as a casual observer and "friend" of the Board. The more I learned about the great work they do, how comprehensive it is compared to other nonprofits that focus on one or two needs, the more involved I wanted to become. When a spot of the Board opened up, I leapt at the chance to participate! This charity truly looks at the entire ecosystem surrounding orphaned and impoverished children, from nutrition/medical needs to housing and education. It's helping to create a strong foundation on which these children will have better lives and help to break the vicious cycle of poverty.
I have known Kari Fillmore, the founder of Angel Covers, for several years through the First United Church of Arvada, where we both are members (I am a former elected Moderator) and she and her husband have been tireless workers for the Church, which has been appreciated Kari asked me to join the Baord of Angel Covers this year after I pointed out there should be more men on the Board.
As a nonprofit, this is woderful. I have served on several boards, including one college's, and this one works hard!
I hope this gets top designation, because it deserves it.
I recently joined the Angel Covers Board of Directors. I was immediately impressed by the care and dedication the Director, Board Members, and volunteers put into their work. Overhead costs are held extremely low, making donations to Angel Covers highly effective at making positive change in the world.
Angel Covers is a charity that is dedicated to bettering the lives of our youth. They help children all over the world, and in more ways than one. They provide medical care, hospitality, education and even a nutritious diet to the needy. Angel Covers instills a passion for achievement and encourages every child to shine. This creates a driving force in each child that allows them to forge their own paths as adults.
As a board member for Angel Covers, I can attest to the wonderful work that AC does for children around the world. Being a completely volunteer run organization, each person is driven the mission and the work. We could not have a more dedicated Executive Director who works to drive the goals of the organization & a board that is committed to continuing to support and improve AC's operations. Few international organizations allow donors & volunteers to see the work of the organization firsthand (i.e. trips to Kenya & China).
Angel Covers is a wonderful organization that I am extremely proud to be a part of
