Nonprofit Overview

Mission: The mission of Angel Flight is to remove the obstacle of transportation for individuals with medical and financial needs. We will accomplish this mission by arranging free air transportation to those who need it most. Angel Flight serves the community by flying patients to distant medical facilities, delivering supplies to disaster areas and reuniting families during desperate times. This community service is made available to any individual, medical agency or health care organization for medically stable and ambulatory patients traveling from, to or through the States of Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, and the Carolinas.

Results: In our 34 years of community service, we have coordinated more than 39,000 missions for families in need of distant medical care. Last year alone, Angel Flight arranged 3,208 missions, that's 9 missions a day, 7 days a week. We helped patients from newborn to 97 years in age with 223 different medical afflictions from 34 states. This year, we want to do even more.

Target demographics: Angel Flight Soars knows that illness isn't stopped by boundaries and believe that cures shouldn't be either, whether those boundaries are geographic or financial. We help by coordinating free flights to lifesaving medical treatments!

Direct beneficiaries per year: In 2016 Angel Flight Soars coordinated 3,208 missions serving more than 9,400 patients and their families

Geographic areas served: Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Programs: The mission of Angel Flight is to help families get to the hope of lifesaving medical treatments, surgeries and clinical programs as often and as long as necessary to ensure that no one has to go without medical treatment simply due to travel challenges.

On Valentine's Day 2003, our 2-month old daughter's life changed forever. Jordan Marie went from being a healthy vibrant baby to a child on full life support within 24 hours. She was diagnosed with a rare respiratory genetic defect that is usually fatal. BUT...the Lord had other plans!! Jordan received a life-saving double lung transplant 3 months later...just one of only a handful of babies to survive such a complicated surgery at such a young age. With all of Jordan's specialized doctors 700 miles away in St. Louis, the innumerable doctor's visits and follow-up medical tests seemed impossible to get to...until Angel Flight Soars arrived on the scene!! God, once again, guided our little overwhelmed, exhausted, and stressed family into the hands of the most incredible group of "flying servants" we've ever met. Now, after nearly TEN YEARS, THOUSANDS of AIR MILES, and DOZENS of hospital trips, Angel Flight Soars is still by our side every step of the way. Angel Flight Soars will FOREVER be part of our family! What a blessing and a God-send they continue to be! We are DEEPLY grateful to Angel Flight Soars for their never-ending dedication, compassion, efficiency, and kindness...you've kept our family going through the "ups" and "downs". GOD BLESS YOU!
