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.

My husband and I care for his elderly mother, so we can no longer get away to church -- or even go for a cup of coffee - together. So we hold our own church. And we give our tithe to several organizations that we stand behind. But we wanted to do something more active and involved - so we went hunting to see how we could support our wonderful men and women who serve this country through our various military units. We found Soldiers' Angels and signed up with the Chaplains' Support Team. My dad was a Chaplain in WWII serving the Army both through the war and later through the reserves for many years. This was a cause that was near and dear to me!

We are so impressed by how proactive, communicative and uplifting our team leader is -- and we were able to join the last minute, right after Thanksgiving, and still have a good impact on the whole Christmas rush to get things off to our deployed soldiers this year. What a wonderful experience this is turning out to be! Serving in this awesome organization is a pleasure and a privilege!

I searched every where for an organization that could link me with my military men and women. Other non profits were either too disorganized and I could not be certain my letters or packages would reach anyone. Or they had different goals than myself. Soldiers' Angels is the most organized and effective military support non profit. They have programs for every interest and are all expertly staffed. The site is user friendly and the staff are genuine and very welcoming. I just joined and have signed up 3 programs. All of my efforts are documented and I am certain that everything I have sent to all of the military branches will be recieved. It's the least I can do for our brave and Soldiers' Angels allows me to do this with confidence. I dont need to look anywhere else.

I have been supporting soldiers since 2002... I started supporting with Soldiers' Angels in 2005, after looking for an organization that was more organized and offered volunteers more ways to support. I started out just supporting 1 soldier at a time, but I am now volunteering on several different teams. I love that Soldiers' Angels helps more than the soldier,... we reach out to the families and caregivers also. There truly is a place for everyone to volunteer.

Soldiers Abgels currently provide services to the VA PTSD program in Palo Alto. Soldiers Angels really makes a difference in our Veteran's lives providing homemade like dinner, support, and fellowship 2 times a month. The impact is tremendous.

Our military are most important. I will support them in any way I can. Not only do you make them feel good but a warm place in your heart is formed. Please pray and support them. Thank you so much.

I've been an Angel off and on for about 5 years now. The satisfaction I get from helping our soldiers and help them feel a little more comfort from home is immeasurable. I'm so glad I found them and it's given me a way to show my appreciation to all those who serve.

I've been a Soldiers Angel for a couple of month now. I search for an organization that works with our Military and did a lot of research. This organization is just wonderful. I love it. They have many options available to be of service and I'm on 3 teams so far and counting. The support you receive from your Team Leader(s) is wonderful. Lots of contact and guidance if needed. Also, there is opportunities to be a part of the same community of volunteers in your Team. I can not hesitate to highly recommend this organization and I have with so many of my friends.

This is such a wonderful program if you are wanting to get involved in giving something back to our brave men and women in our military. You can be involved in many different levels depending on the amount of time you have available. There are too many good things to list about the Soldiers' Angels program. My advice is to check it out yourself :)

I've been a member of Soldier's Angels for a couple of months now, and it's so great. Not only do they make it easy for you to adopt someone who is serving our country, but the support they give you afterward is tremendous. They're always available via email, and the Facebook support with the leaders and with other Angels is excellent.
