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.

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

Reviews for Soldiers' Angels

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined Soldier's Angels in April and adopted a deployed soldier. A young mom spending 6 months away from her toddler. Offering her support has been a blessing to me. I honestly think I benefit from the relationship more than she does. In June, my only son joined the Army and going through the emotions of an Army mom has increased my commitment to this organization.

I'm a new volunteer and have been graciously welcomed with open arms by Soldiers Angel's. This organization does so much good in a world with a lot of hate. I am impressed daily by what these Angels do and the amazing, loving affect they have on people's lives. This is home and I'm never leaving. I love being a Soldier's Angel!

I have been a part of Soldiers Angels for 3 years now. The groups are just like family. If you have questions about anything, everyone is quick to help out. Being a part of Soldiers Angels makes me happy to know that we make a difference In the lives of our much deserving military members and family members of deployed home & abroad.

I have been a volunteer "Angel" since 2010. In that time, all of the hours spent letter writing and sending care packages to our deployed military personnel has been a total labor of love. I would recommend Soldiers' Angels to anyone looking for a way to support our brave ones in harm's way and also our veterans and their families.

As a volunteer since 2010, I have had a wonderful, rewarding experience with Soldiers' Angels. I wish I had heard of them sooner. I have had the privilege to work alongside an awesome Letter Writing Team leader and other Angels who have been a tremendous help when I first joined up to this day. It is an amazing, humbling feeling to know that you have turned a bad day into a good one for someone who is deployed so far from home, simply because they received a letter or package. I am not exaggerating when I say this is a life-changing experience.

I have had the great pleasure of volunteering with Soldiers Angels for the past few years. I love the camaraderie of my fellow volunteers and the opportunity to serve our military service women and men and their families. Soldiers Angels is a lean operation and I appreciate how they really watch their dollars. They are effective and have a high impact!

I've been with Soldier's Angels for a couple years now. Originally I joined so my kids and I had a project for the summer that taught them lessons on giving back. It quickly became so much more than that to our whole family. We connected with heroes all around the world. We sent them packages and letters hoping to just to make them smile and sometimes became a source of connection to home and hope during very challenging and dark times.
Soldier's Angels gives people from every walk of life the chance to serve those who serve for us. Our support Has ranged from a letter a week to several care packages and stacks of letters a week. As our lives change we can still support our heroes. It's been a great honor and joy to volunteer for them and I recommend them to anyone looking for a small or big way to give back!

I absolutely LOVE this organization!! I love being able to help our troops in any way possible and also sign some of the military people I know up to receive postcard books and such. This is the most loving organization I have ever been a part of! I am proud to be a Soldiers Angel!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Only change I can think of is to include a smart phone app.
