A special place in heaven exists for all the Angels. I prayed for God to show me a path for my future and someday I hope to be an Angel on the level of the current Team Awesome as they truly are inspiring, caring, and hardworking people. What a gift to know that when you give of yourself, time, emotion, advice, sweat, tears, and gifts.............. All this will help an innocent child through an honest organization.

Angels Against Abuse is an amazing charity that helps the foster children in Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties in Florida. They quietly assist many community partners such as Eckerd Family Services, Directions For Living, Ready For Life, the Department of Child Welfare and many more. Last year they opened up the Angel Visitation Center. This center allows families to have safe supervised visitations in a fun setting. This visitation center is the first of its kind in Pinellas County and is having a positive impact on foster children and their families in helping with the reunification process.

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've witnessed first had how this organization benefits abused children through the work and services they provide. Dedicated staff who are committed to helping children that have been separated from their family due to dangerous and abusive environments. They are making a positive difference in our community and I believe whole heartedly they deserve the recognition and trust that they will continue reaching out and helping abused children in many, many ways.

The children in our community benefit tremendously. Working with such a vulnerable population that are experiencing more trauma than most of us will ever experience in a lifetime are being blessed by the Angels generosity. These acts of kindness are putting smiles on children's faces across Pinellas County. Thank you Angels for helping to take care of our children.

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.

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.
