Success Stories

A father was laid off work leaving his family homeless. While he searched for a job, his family lived in shelters.

Small Angels bought the family airline tickets to Florida and gave them a chance at a new life.

A little girl was diagnosed with a rare skin disease, caused by lack of a protein that allows the skin to adhere to her body. When she was born, she had no skin on the lower two thirds of her legs. Everyday she had to be wrapped in bandages to prevent infection and disease. Small Angels purchased new windows for her family’s home to help keep her cool under her bandages and reduce her heat rashes.

A young girl found a love for music, playing the trumpet in her high school band. Her family could not afford to buy her a trumpet to continue her musical education. Small Angels purchased the instrument for her.
