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.

After retirement, I have had the honor of serving with many military focused non-profit organizations in the past. Soldiers' Angels, by far, is one who is doing it right. The volunteers and Team have a passion for service "Above and Beyond! "

I started working with Soldiers Angel's a year ago. I couldn't have chosen a better group of loving caring people to work with. This organization is the most conscientious nonprofit I have worked with, making sure admin cost are low as possible and donations go to helping soldiers and their families. Hearing how much our Soldiers appreciate being able to depend on us just made my heart leap with pure joy.
Knowing my donations go to helping our military and their families is priceless. Many charities you give and give to and nothing seems to ever change. Not so with Soldiers Angels, I know I make a difference in a soldier's life.
Best,
Jackie

I love Soldiers' Angels and the amazing work the organization does. I think it's about time the organization put some necessary structure in place. The organization had great heart but lacked structure. Patti wanted to do too many things for too many people and didn't take the time to run a business. I'm so excited to see the organization focusing on VA Medical Center support. It's greatly needed!
