Location: 2700 NE Loop 410, Suite 310 San Antonio TX 78217 USA

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.

I love volunteering for Soldiers' Angels and have been an "Angel" for several years! It makes me feel that in some small way I am helping to serve my country by serving those that serve my country. I get a blessing from participating in this organization and I know many others who feel the same way.

I love this organization. They do so many amazing things for our servicemen and women who are deployed or retired. They even help out families that have lost their loved ones overseas. It's an amazing organization and I am proud to say that I have been involved for more than three years now. It's a great feeling to be able to help someone who doesn't have someone to talk to or is feeling lonely out there. It's also a very good learning experience too. I'll definitely give this organization a five star rating. They definitely deserve it. May No Soldier Go Unloved!

Adopting a deployed soldier has benefited my life in so many ways. I've had the pleasure of meeting such dedicated and caring people wearing the uniform. I've had fun sending stuff. I've had fun meeting a specific need or fulfilling wishful requests. I am in my 60's and this opportunity has given me meaningful things to do that others appreciate. I still hear from soldiers and their families and that brings such joy. I hope to start a Soldiers' Angels album soon. This organization has stepped up to the plate when our troops needed help the most, like with the bloody attack of 350 Taliban on COP Keating. Google that one.

I love this place. I greatly appreciate all soliders do and this is a perfect way for me to express that gratitude and give back. I have been doing this a few years now and have met some great soliders, who have all said how much they enjoy recieveing letters and packagaers from us! It's such a good opportunity to connect.

Soldiers' Angels has an amazing impact on our service members deployments and time at home, as well as my own. I have been so fulfilled being a part of this outstanding group, and meeting the other volunteers. Soldiers' Angels is unique in that it supports every aspect of a service member's life, from their family, to their deployment, to wounded support, to support of the families of the fallen. Whatever your talent is, Soldiers' Angels knows how to utilize it with one of their teams- cooking, baking, sewing, writing letters, sending care packages, you name it. Through SA, I feel like I have made a difference, while also knowing that the other volunteers and our service members have had a profound impact on my life as well.

Being part of Soldiers' Angels has been an amazing experience for me and my 2 daughters. We have volunteered for 5 years now and have adopted several deployed soldiers, some of which I still keep in contact with. Through Soldiers' Angels I have been able to teach my daughters how to give back to those men & woman who are giving so much of themselves for our freedom. I love being an "Angel" and would recommend this organization to anyone!!

Being a part of Soldier's Angels is SO rewarding!! To know that you are making a difference for someone you don't even know makes it SO worth while. I have talked to Soldiers who are serving and they said that just receiving a note or letter at mail call makes such a difference. I highly recommend becoming a part of this great organization.

Soldier's Angels is an awesome group of Angels who put their hearts as well time and creativity into every thing they do. I love being an "Angel"!!! I know the sacrifices that are made by both sides of the family and for them to have an Angel it's not only a comfort but encouraging at the same time.
