I have been a child protection social worker for the past 20 plus years,most recently in the State of Montana. I have had several children of various ages who needed to be transported to hospitals in Denver for medical treatment due to physical abuse by adults. Angel flight helped get those children to hospitals when their needs were life threatening, then once the treatment was complete returned the children to Montana. I never met the pilots but cannot thank them enough for their generous giving of time, saving a child's life. All of you a truly angels!!!!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen children's lives saved from various forms of abuse because Angel Flight West was there when needed.
