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
Programs: - Adopt a Soldier: Individualized support throughout deployment - Angel Bakers: Homemade treats for the deployed - Chaplain Support Team: Help chaplains support the troops - Ladies of Liberty: Extra TLC for deployed females - Letter Writing Team: Personal letters for the deployed - SA Germany: Supporting medevac'd wounded/ill and medical staff at Landstuhl - Valour-IT: Providing adaptive laptops for the severely wounded or injured - VA Hospital Support - Living Legends: Comforting the loved ones left behind when a warrior falls on the battlefield - Operation Top Knot: Handmade gifts & virtual baby showers - Adopt-A-Family: Holiday adoption program to support a family's holiday needs - Women of Valor: Support to female caregivers of Post 9-11 wounded, ill and injured service members. - Sewing Team: Handmade blankets, scarves and pillowcases - Cards Plus Team: Extra TLC for soldiers and families

I have been a member of Soldiers Angels since 2013. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to reach out and send whatever you can to a soldier who is out there fighting for not only our freedom but for the rights of others to live. Even if its just a one time card to a soldier, it is a very special thing for them. I know that some do not get any support at all and if I could I would adopt all of them. As of today there are 96 very deserving soldiers waiting for adoption. Just a card a week and one package a month brings a great joy to them and lets them know that what they do matters - not just to their family but to a grateful nation.

I am very proud to be a supporter and donor of Soldiers' Angels. As a donor, I have looked at many charities (especially ones that support the military) and have found that Soldiers' Angels is a great organization that supports not only deployed service members but also veterans. I think this is important as many veterans from previous wars and conflicts did not receive the support or recognition they deserve. So, I am happy to have my donations go to help them. Thank you Soldiers' Angels for being true to your mission.

As a donor, I am very pleased to support Soldiers' Angels and the wonderful work that they do. I have supported other non-profit organizations focusing on military families and veterans in the past, but I must say that I was not pleased at how these organizations utilized my donation. Soldiers' Angels puts my funds to work first-hand with supporting veterans, their families, and our deployed. I am honored to be able to support Soldiers' Angels and be one of their donors. Other non-profits should use the example of Soldiers' Angels and support the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedom. Thank you, Soldiers' Angels.

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

Nothing comes to mind. Great organization.

My high school club donated candy to VAs through Soldiers Angels after Halloween. I liked that it was so accessible since they promptly replied when I inquired and they will take any kind of help you offer. It is a great organization!

Being able to donate items to the local Washington, DC VA and helping out our local veterans has been wonderful. The new support at the VA is a great way for Soldiers' Angels to spread its wings. Thank you for the opportunity!

I've never seen a more dedicated group of volunteers. They are our heroes' heroes. My experiences with Soldiers' Angels have made me want to get more involved. With my son in the military now, I appreciate all that this great organization does. From serving our deployed to helping our veterans, the opportunities of serving our nation's heroes are endless.

I have been donating to Soldiers' Angels now for about 8 years and love knowing that my donations are going directly towards supporting our troops, wounded, veterans, and our military families. I also enjoy receiving mail updates from SA, telling me how my donations are being used to aide our heroes.

Soldiers' Angels is a wonderful organization! I joined my freshman year of college - almost 8 years ago. It's been a wonderful experience, from adopting my first soldier, to doing fundraisers and to now volunteering as the DC Metro Service Area Manager - assisting our local volunteers and helping out at the various military medical centers and VAs while still supporting our deployed. Being able to assist our deployed troops, veterans, wounded and ill warriors and their families - ALL through the same organization - is truly an honor and privilege. I'm excited to see and experience the growth of Soldiers' Angels and being able to touch the lives of more of our Nation's Heroes.

Soldiers' Angels is an amazing organization. Late last year they almost went out of business but it has been revived with new leadership. Now they are here to stay and slowly building their program services. As a donor I'm thrilled with the structure the new leaders are putting in place.

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

Would have liked to have send the structure put in place before the organization hit rock bottom. It would have been an easier up hill climb for the new leaders.
