Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Disaster Aid, Disaster Preparedness & Relief Services, Human Services, Military & Veterans Organizations, Travelers Aid, Veterans

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

Hi, I'm Linda I have been a client at S.l.E.W. Cancer WellnessCenter for nine and a half years. It has been a blessing for me to be around other women who understand and have walked in my footsteps. S.L.E.W. has provided me with wigs, bra's and prosthesis at no cost. But most of all support, friendship, and have made me whole again. I can pick up my head and walk proudly.

I am on the Soldiers' Angels Baking team and learned about it through another baking group that I am apart of. It is a great way to show support of our soldiers. Each time I ship a box, I share my experiences with the original baking group and have gotten a great response from them and several more have joined as a result.

I was a Soldiers Angels volunteer waaaay back in the beginning of the 9/11 conflicts. I have since rejoined their teams to support those who sacrifice everything for our safety! They have COME A LONG WAY with organization as they are VERY organized and provide stellar support to volunteers! I would highly recommend them if you want to *send a little sunshine to our Service Members*.

I am currently a Team Angel assigned to a Letter Writing Team. I have volunteered for many years with various non-profit organizations who provide support for the United States Military and our Veterans. I have to say, the support that Soldier's Angels provides for our troops and its volunteers is by far some of the best.

All you do is well... The only way to improve this service is to be able to reach out to those veterans who are unable financially to reach you...by recognizing them and possibly delivering to them..

They are curtieous, kind and hardworking. The only problem is not with them it's the food bank truck is constantly 1/2 to 1 hour late, causing problems.

Soldier's Angels is an amazing organization. Helping to support our brave men and women through their deployment has been an honor. I am a part of a few teams: Cards Plus, Letter Writing, Living Legends, and Deployed Adoption. Each one of these teams I have seen the impact a simple action can bring. Our heroes don't ask for much; just to know that there are people out there how care about what they are sacrificing. While many of them are busy defending our country, it feels good to know that when you get a response, you know you are making a difference. I am not looking for recognition in what I do, I volunteer because I want to make a difference, show my support, and help these brave individuals stay strong and loved.
Thank you Soldier's Angels for allowing me to be a part of something bigger than myself!!!

I always enjoyed volunteering. But after college, starting a job, getting married, starting life, it was hard to get started again. Soldier's Angels has a way for anyone to volunteer from any level of giving. I enjoy writing. So being able to share my gratitude through word is such a joy. This organization is such a well-organized and dedicated one. The work everyone does to support our troops is encouraging and motivating. It's an honor to know that as a common citizen, I can still reach out and make a difference to the lives of some of our service members.

I volunteer at Soldiers' Angels in three teams, Letter Writing, Cards Plus, and Sewing and Crafting. I find the time spent sending mail to our soldiers both current and veteran and their families to be very rewarding. I'm medically unable to serve in our military, and this is a great alternative for me. My kids even like coloring pictures to send with my letters. It's a great way to teach them that our rights and freedom come from so many brave men and women who put their own lives on hold to serve our country. Occasionally I'll hear back from a soldier, and it completely makes my week.
