Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Disaster Aid, Disaster Preparedness & Relief Services, Human Services, Military & Veterans Organizations, Travelers Aid, Veterans

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.

Target demographics: the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and Veterans of all eras.

Geographic areas served: the United States and around the world

I found this nonprofit just by chance back in September. I cannot tell you how much it to me to be able to help our men and women in the military and our veterans. I get up every morning to check the database to see if there is a letter or card to get out. I have three adopted deployed soldiers right now. I am involved in seven different groups. I feel like if even one card/letter makes a difference then I have done my best. If you are looking for a way to make a difference to our armed forces, this is the place.

I was looking for a way to give back, and specifically to the men and women in the military. I found the Soldiers' Angels website and I couldn't believe how easy it was to sign up and get started. I was writing letters and sending care packages that day. This is a truly amazing organization. Everybody involved is passionate and always willing to answer any questions or help in any way. It's the most rewarding thing I've ever been a part of.

I have been a volunteer with Soldiers Angels for a few years. I had to take time off because of health issues, but came back as part of the letter writing team. I am so amazed at how much Soldiers Angels has changed and grown. It's a first rate organization with the soldiers, airmen, marines, sailors and coast guardsmen and their families first. There are several different ways you can volunteer, from simply being on the Letter writing team, which means you simply write a letter to an assigned soldier. You are supplied with the name, address, some info. I type my letters as it's much easier to read. There are other groups that are more involved. I encourage everyone to check it out, if you have children, school groups, church groups that would like to get involved, by all means. I could go on and on, but it's top notch. Talk is cheap, a stamp for a letter is cheaper.

Want to thank a veteran or a deployed military man or woman for putting their lives at risk to keep our country free? Soldier's Angels is the non-profit to join. It gives me great comfort to reach out to them. The letters and cards that we send are so appreciated by them. If you want to get further involved than just writing you can do that also. Show the military that they are appreciated. Many are over seas without family and some are home and have been wounded by taking care of our safety. I highly recommend this organization. You can do as little or a lot as a Soldiers Angel.

I have been a volunteer with Soldiers' Angels since 2009. It is a wonderful opportunity to give back to those who sacrifice so much for our country and our freedom. Soldiers' Angels has so many different ways to help, from care packages, to family adoptions, to cards for vets. This is especially nice because it allows people of all income levels to do something. Although the majority of those to whom I've sent support are silent, I know that whatever I do makes a tremendous difference for them- and for me as well. Those who run the organization are knowledgeable and very helpful, and work very hard to make sure that every dollar donated is used to benefit those serving.

Awesome way to support our military!!! It is a very worthy cause. The soldiers appreciate the support. My son is a disabled veteran and only wish we knew of this when he was deployed. Thank you for the ones who support this effort...

Having been an Angel since 9/11, I have been able to touch the hearts and homes of many deployed, caregivers, children of military, gold star families and Veterans how were lost in the social climate in gratitude. Hearing your name on " mail call" or feeling forgotten but having a stranger write " we know who you are and sacrifices made", on a individual card or letter rather than a " Any soldier", is a great morale boost. Reaching out to homeless vets who number 1:4 among homeless, or those in a retirement home of VA facility is caring, covering the careflighted wounded in a blanket of love is consoling. I am not prouder of any other vokunteer organization, as we also reach out to assist medic and Chaplian personnel at a time 22 suicides a day are ongoing. Soldiers angels is international in part and is 24/7 support. It is a way to step up without taking a political stand. It says " it could be my brother, son or neighbor, I will never allow them to feel forgotten.
