This charity is a good steward of donated funds used to build awareness and educate the community with regard to existing or potential neglect and abuse against children. They are unique in that they can act quickly when necessary, to provide timely support to neglected and abused children. The Angel's Visitation Center is a wonderful place created to allow case worker and family visitations to occur in a safe and happy environment.

As a Board Member I have an inside look at one of the most responsible and rewarding boards I've ever experienced. There are no paid employees and administrative costs in this organization are kept extraordinarily low because of the volunteers who absorb expenses that normally would be charged to the charity. The result is that donations directly assist abused children or children at risk of abuse who desperately need our help.

Angels Against Abuse...so aptly named. So many of the children that they help never see their Angel, they just know that someone has provided them with things that they need. Whether it is be a school uniform, warm coat on a cold day, sheets and bedding, car seats, a gift or two on Christmas morning, Angels quietly come through and provide these items. Last year Angels opened the Angel Visitation Center. This center provides a safe and neutral place for children in foster care to have supervised visitation with their families. The visitation rooms are filled with age appropriate toys and activities that provide a positive atmosphere for the children. Attached are photos of some of the visitation center rooms. There are so many different ways that Angels Against Abuse help the children in foster care in our community. Visit their website to learn more.

I got involved with Angels Against Abuse this year. I was moved by their mission to help the children who need it the most. The founder is a remarkable person who works tirelessly to make a difference to the many foster children in our area. This charity is near and dear to me. Children are so innocent and they should feel safe and loved.

As a member of "the Angels" and as a non-profit executive, I see the good work that is done on a daily basis for foster children. The Angels meet little and do a lot. There is never a need that comes to the group that doesn't get attention. If there is a way for the group to help, they will. Hard working, dedicated to the cause, all about the kids.

Everyone involved with this charity truly cares about the children in the foster care system. If you know someone who has been in the system, you know how much is lacking. It takes a great group of people to step up and try to fill these holes and help the children through the most difficult time of their lives.

This organization:
Collects donations
Solicits volunteers; individuals and organizations
Creates fantastic events
It's leaders mix it all together
And actually help kids one on one with their immediate needs
Hold some fun events for them like Mad Hatter.
It does not get any better
I know, I have seen the results on the kids faces...smiles, amazement, joy, appreciation.

Angels Against Abuse represents the best parts of the spirit of charity. The diversity of its members' backgrounds and skills is a complement to what unites them: the simple desire to help. Florida's child welfare system is under incredible burdens, and The Angels unique role in it as fast actors, connectors, and quick-responders provides much needed support. I've been lucky enough to volunteer with Sandy and The Angels for several months now, and cannot recommend them enough.

As a member of the Angels Against Abuse, and as a Guardian ad-litem, I am always amazed at the level of commitment and care that the Angels have for the children in our community.
From the visitation center, to supporting the Child Protective Services group and The Kind Mouse, Angels does whatever it takes, no questions asked!

I have worked with Angels Against Abuse Inc for 9 years. Each year I am more amazed at the accomplishments of this 100% volunteer organization. The passion of the Angels' president to help children in need is infectious. Every volunteer catches this passion and passes it on. Being 100% volunteer means almost every penny donated goes straight to the children. The volunteers are incredible. The hope that is spread to children and families in the welfare system is heart warming.
When Angels commit to providing hands on, material or monetary assistance, they do so within 24 hours. This means needs are met immediately.

The laughter of a child is priceless. There are thousands of children in the Florida Welfare system and Angels Against Abuse not only brings awareness to the situation but helps bring hope and love to these children in a very real and tangible way. Angels are 100% volunteer based and pride themselves on being able to bring help to children within 24 hours of a request from the child's caregiver or child agency. The hope brought to a child, in the way of braces that change their life, is priceless. The hope brought to children, in the way of tablets for educational purposes by their mentors, is priceless. These children are in a situation of hopelessness because they have been removed from their homes. The goal of the Angels is to bring hope to children in the system so they, in turn, can pass it on and break the cycle of abuse in their future.

What an amazing Non Profit helping to fill a void in our community. It is very unfortunate that a need for this organization is required but it is. I can not say enough the work being done by one of the brightest Angels I know (Sandy Kearney) and her group of Angels. Thanks for being there for the ones who can not speak for themselves.

Angels Against Abuse goes above and beyond to make things happen for youth who are receiving services from the lead agencies in foster care! They are able to act quickly to ensure children and foster care families get what they need during a particularly traumatic time in their lives. The Angels are responsive and innovation to create solutions and meet the needs of the youth and lead agencies they provide support for.

This is an amazing nonprofit!!! I have seen the work they do in our community. There is no task too small and no obstacle too large for them to take on. I have seen the faces of the little children and the difference this organization makes in the lives of their little hearts and I'm totally overwhelmed!! The Angels go above and beyond on a regular basis. I have worked with may nonprofit organizations in the past, but none exceed the limits the Angels are willing to go to help disadvantaged children. Their mission, vision, and values are second to none! We are truly blessed to have Angels Against Abuse!!!

Angels Against Abuse is constantly working to improve the lives of children in need. Wherever there is a child in need , you will find the Angels involved in solving the problem. They work with many different agencies. They have recently opened an Angels center to accommodate children who have been taken out of their homes to visit with their parents. Their goal is to help make life easier for struggling children and find ways to put a smile on their little faces. I believe the organization is life changing for the children it touches!

I have been a volunteer for Angels Against Abuse for about 4 years now. It has truly been life changing for me.
This is a charity that operates from a total heart space. Not only do they work with many different agencies, but they are dedicated to helping all children in distress. It is sometimes kids who have aged out of the foster care
program and are trying to get a start in life. It can be an urgent call from Pinellas County Sheriff Dept. requesting
help with supplies for children taken out of their homes, and removed from their parents. It can be providing
bedding, clothes or gifts for a child in need. It can be The Mad Hatter Tea Party for kids in foster care-a way to make kids feel special and cared for. This is a top notch agency. Definitely deserves 5 stars!!

I've supported this wonderful and worthy organization for many years that reaches out to assist and comfort abused children, with loving care straight from the heart of its wonderful founder, Sandy Kearney. I recently toured their new facility, the Angel Center, where broken families and abused children will have a welcoming safe harbor environment with inviting and beautifully decorated rooms according to the age group of the children they serve. It's a "special place" where children and families can be restored. Angels Against Child Abuse has a proven track record of intervention on behalf of child victims of abuse. The testimonials from the children themselves are overwhelmingly heartfelt and proof of the benefits they've received, which they share each year with the audience at the annual fundraising gala. And each year, as a member of the audience, our hearts are full as we measure the growth and positive results Angels Against Child Abuse has made, through candid and very personal testimonials from the children about their life "before and after" the Angels intervened. There are so many branches of aid that receive assistance from the Angels, far reaching for me to enumerate, but I hope you will take my word for it. I can honestly say I have personally witnessed the many ways Angels Against Child Abuse has positively impacted the lives of abused children who would otherwise have fallen through the cracks. Through the work of their intervention on behalf of abused children in our community, Angels Against Child Abuse is making a difference! It is saving and restoring lives! This is one organization that is truly dedicated to abused children, where your donations will be honored through rebuilding young lives.

Angels Against Abuse is a consistent presence in the life of a foster child. Not only do they follow the child through their foster care journey, they team up with agencies to improve the life of the foster children.

We are very grateful for all Angels Against Abuse does for all of the children of Pinellas County.

I have been a member of the Angels Against Abuse for five years now. I am also a Director of one of the agencies that the Angels supports. Sandy and the team are always willing to help children and families in need to help prevent child abuse and neglect and have helped so many people in Pinellas County.

I called Sandy the other day because my friend is a School Social Worker in St. Pete and one of his students has lice but his family cannot afford treatment for his hair, home, and vehicle. Without hesitation, Sandy said that the Angels would take care of it.

We are lucky to have such a great resource in our community!

I attended the Expo last week representing The Kidz Club and loved the experience. It was wonderful to collaborate and meet so many agencies that are trying to improve the life of children on a daily basis. Thanks for the invitation looking forward to working together in the future.
