Review for Angel Covers, Broomfield, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I been a volunteer and now board member with Angel Covers for nearly 10 years. It is difficult to find non-profits these days that contribute nearly 96% of donations every year to their programming. Angel Covers is a small but mighty organization that continues to stay focused. The images attached reflect happy faces of children that have directly benefited from the organization.

Humble Hearts, a school and home in Kenya, that now serves 300+ children on a shoestring budget is one of the programs of focus. Having personally visited 2 years ago I know that the work Angel Covers does with these children is used to provide these children with an education, something no one can ever take from them, feed them and love them.

As a woman and a mother of a young girl, I can't imagine worrying about her being married off at 12 or 13 because the family can't afford to feed and cloth her. The image of Zerong is one of hope - she can continue to go to school and become an educated woman and hopefully marry when she wants.

Children in this Huabei, China orphanage receive much needed vitamins through donations made to Angel Covers.

Working with Angel Covers makes me remember to take for granted my education, the food I eat consistently every day, the roof over my head and the medical care I can afford. Angel Covers brings hope to children around the world.

Review for Angel Covers, Broomfield, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I discovered Angel Covers about 10 years ago. I was immediately impressed with the Director, Kari Fillmore. She is dedicated and works tirelessly for child. I was also interested in the organization because nearly all of donations go towards programs. VERY few non-profits can say that. I began as a volunteer doing whatever Kari needed and have grown into serving as a board member.

This summer my daughter and I traveled with Kari and one of her children to Kenya to look in on and work at Humble Hearts. Humble Hearts is just one example of a program Angel Covers supports. It is an excellent example of the organization's mission being carried out. They strive to provide nutrition, housing, medical and educational needs so they can grow into their potential.

I highly recommend this GREAT non-profit!

I started as a donor 7 or 8 years ago after seeing Kari Fillmore, the Executive Director, on the TV speaking about her recent trip to Kenya. The stories about the children Angel Covers were helping drew me in and I have never regretted getting involved with this meaningful organization. Shortly after being introduced, I knew I wanted to volunteer. This organization is 100% run by volunteers and this allows the majority of donations to go to programs. Not many non-profits these days can say this.

My relationship with the organization has grown to where I am now a board member. Angel Covers has stayed true to their mission of serving disadvantaged children and orphans. They are focused, which allows them to provide continuous resources to those they have committed to serving.

Angel Covers often works to put programs in place that allow the organizations served to become self sustaining. The concept of "teaching a man to fish" is so powerful and allows future funds to support other groups or needs within key recipient organizations.

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

Seek out skilled fundraisers as volunteers.

Review for Angel Covers, Broomfield, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started as a volunteer with Angel Covers nearly 7 years ago. The organization is completely volunteer run, including the Director. As such, less than 10% of the funds go towards administrative costs. This in itself is highly unusual in the world of non-profits. I have such admiration for the mission, to help disadvantaged and orphaned children around the world. Angel Covers believes that all children have the need for nutrition, education, home and medical care and what is not to like about that?

I have volunteered with Angel Covers for 5+ years and the level of commitment to their mission is heartwarming. They have done a great job of supporting programs as fully as they can without extending themselves to a point where the programs (a.k.a the children) suffer. I continue to be amazed at how low their administrative costs are - the organization is 100% volunteer, including the Director. Where possible, they have worked to create self sustaining programs in-country so that the recipients can "fish" for a lifetime.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Although I haven't traveled (yet) to any of the countries where Angel Covers programs are in place I have experienced the results of the work through letters from sponsored children, photographs of schools being built, water tanks being installed, food being served, childrent being taught.

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

Find more volunteers that share a passion for disadvantaged and orphaned children around the world to help Angel Covers.
