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

Volunteering with Soldier's Angels is possibly one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in my life. The opportunity to interact on a one on one basis with our military is far more rewarding than just throwing money at an organization. And when I receive a reply from one of our military that I have written to, I makes my heart beat faster to know that I have given a little joy to someone who has given so much for all of us! ! This is the best group I have ever come across in all my 67 years!! TY, SOLDIER'S ANGELS, for allowing me the experience of a lifetime!!

I have supported and/or volunteered with several organizations supporting our military over a 20 year span. Soldiers' Angels is truly outstanding, offering a range of services to military and veteran's families and just as many service opportunities to the Angel volunteers. From the perspective of both a military wife and an Angel volunteer, I can honestly say that Soldiers' Angels is a blessing to military families, veterans, and volunteers alike!

I joined Soldiers' Angels in memory of my son who died in 2009 at the age of 12. He was a huge supporter of our troops despite not growing up in a military family. When looking for an organization to devote time to, there were many, SA stood out above all others because of their vast opportunities and sense of community. The system is easy to use and there is always someone willing to answer a question if something comes up. The closed Facebook groups are a great resource as well. I have been fortunate to receive many replies from service members and they show so much appreciation for all the volunteers.

I'm forever grateful that I found Soldiers' Angels in 2007. I'm on 3 teams and it gives me a chance to do something for our active duty men and women and veterans, which means I'm doing something for my country. I'm from a military family that goes back to the American Revolution and that means the world to me.

Soldiers' Angels is a wonderful group that is totally non-profit and cares so much about our Veterans; deployed and all military families. I am part of the Letter Writing Team and I write letters to our deployed men and women of the armed forces. I appreciate all that our military does for us to keep us safe & free and this one way I can give back to them! It's totally a volunteer position and I love it! This organization really cares and I will keep supporting it!

I joined the Letter writing team through Soldiers' Angels back in April and fell in love with the whole idea of writing. Being an English major, I've always had a passion for writing but I've become more accustomed to writing to strangers. Every time I receive mail, I have a smile on my face, especially when soldiers tell me how much they laughed at my letter writing.

I now am a Group Leader of the Letter Writing Team and couldn't be more proud! I hope to encourage new people to write and to make letter writing a hobby again :)

I am a volunteer with Soldiers Angels and am on multiple teams. I retired from a career after 29 years and was looking for a way to work with veterans. I am so lucky to be able to volunteer at the VA hospital here in Denver Colorado. I am so lucky to have contact with veterans and it is so rewarding. I look forward to each time I am at the hospital or at an event.

My story is a little bit different, in that I have been a volunteer for Soldiers' Angels since 2006. We have shipped over 60,000 Christmas stockings to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we are supporting the VA's in Georgia as well as working with Google to provide laptops to our brave soldiers that have been wounded. This picture was taken May 22 at Trinka Davis Veterans Village in Carrollton, GA. The award is a proclamation from our governor.
