The mission of Welcome Home Angel, Inc. is to bring joy and relief to children with chronic and physically debilitating illnesses or injuries in Wilmington and its surrounding areas.
We believe that we have an obligation and duty to help those in need. The children that we work with did nothing to deserve the medical hardships that they experience daily, but they all deserve our help. For those of us who have been blessed with healthy lives, it is difficult to imagine the life altering effect that chronic diseases and injuries have on children and their caregivers. A parent frequently ends up having to leave their job so that they can provide the required level of care. This puts a financial strain on the families which leads to the inability to pay for needed room and home upgrades. Hospital visits and doctor appointments become routine. Days confined to the home, away from peer social interactions, are commonplace. Life will always be different for these families, but we are here to provide support.
Welcome Home Angel exists to provide relief to the lives of these children and their families through aesthetic changes, structural modifications, and emotional support. When possible, we refer the families to additional organizations that might be able to provide further assistance. We also seek to involve groups or clubs that can help bring joy and excitement into the lives of the children. In kind donations are actively acquired, and in doing so, the value of monetary donations is doubled. Our approach leads to a more comprehensive form of involvement that maximizes our impact.
