Issues: Disaster Aid, Human Services, Veterans

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.
Geographic areas served: the United States and around the world

I adopted my first soldier in 2004. Writing one letter each week and sending one package per month seemed like such a simple way to reach out and help. What I didn't realize was just how much such simple gestures were appreciated by our soldiers!

Soldiers' Angels has made a huge impact on my life. The support is amazing, from their guidance through the process of adopting a soldier, to making you feel like you are part of a larger group of others who care, to making sure you are appreciated, to occasional mailings so you can show everyone you support Soldier's Angels' (not "junk mail, don't worry!).

Of course, the biggest draw is knowing that the men and women serving our country are being supported. Even if you never hear from the soldier you adopted, you know you made a difference in his or her deployment, and you have the opportunity to let them know how much they are appreciated!

I tell anyone who will listen about Soldiers' Angels! By far, it is the best group I have ever had joined!

Soldiers angels is led by two outstanding folks who dedicate their entire lives to support and assisting our veterans. Both are service spouses and the CEO is a veteran! They will stop whatever they are in the middle of to assist a vet in need day or night. The organization is the most dedicated and tireless organization I have ever known! One of their best attributes is that they are still focused on every single individual vice others who have lost their true ways and simply look as a vet in need as just another number.

Today my wife was on craigslist and saw a listing on free items for veterans, she shared it with me and she said lets sign up, of course i told her it's probably filled, well she tried and not long after that she received an email with confirmation on the time. Times are real hard and this was a blessing, like Christmas in September. The staff was so nice and generous and didn't make us feel like we were begging...Thank you all who attended to us and made us feel so good...Thank you...Stephen Gracia

Visted Soldier's Angels this morning. I found out about the giveaway event from Craigslist and Facebook. I didn't know what to expect when I walked in. My expectations were succeeded I thought it would just be measly gifts but no there was a lot of really good stuff and I also understand they have the limits so everyone has a fair share to get stuff. Not being able to afford a lot of stuff and being on a tight budget this was really awesome got a lot of good stuff. All the volunteers were very helpful and they had a volunteer at each station and they gave everyone bags which helped a lot. Everyone was very polite. For the one premium item all you have to do is write a review which I don't mind doing for a great organization. Thank you also to all the merchandisers who donated. I would recommend them again.

Good morning Soldiers Angles staff, My names Raleigh Walker III MSG (ret). It was my greatest pleasure, back in 07-08 when I was deployed to Iraq, to be the contact person for Soldiers Angels. The back packs that were sent to my CSH through me were the best welcome packs that the wounded soldiers would receive once they entered our doors. I thanks you for you unbroken devotion and caring for our wounded soldiers. Keep the faith and courage alive for are past, present, and future deployed and wounded service men and women. Again ThanksRaleigh Walker , MSG(Ret)
