Our mission is to bring joy to children with significant health or life altering conditions and relief to their families by creating happier and more functional living spaces.
Welcome Home Angel serves families with children who have chronic conditions, physically debilitating injuries, or significant developmental disabilities who are restricted by limitations in the following areas of major life activity: self-care, mobility, or capacity for independent living. We serve children ages 4-18 in the Wilmington region.
We renovate the child's bedroom (and sometimes other living spaces, depending upon need). Many renovations are primarily aesthetic to enrich the environment where the child spends so much time and calls their own, but other renovations are major, to include door widening, handicap accessible bathrooms, and ramps. We also do a makeover of any siblings' bedrooms so they don’t feel left out.
We respect the privacy and confidentiality of all information that we receive about each family, whether we accept their case or not.
This application is the first step you must take for your child to be considered for Welcome Home Angel’s services. Once your application is received, we will contact you soon with more information.
The services that Welcome Home Angel provides to you and your family are completely free of charge!
