Success Stories

A family of four lived in a oneroom motel for two years. The neighborhood was becoming dangerous and the family wanted to give their children a better home. They found a twobedroom apartment but could not afford the movein costs. Small Angels paid those costs and first and last month’s rent.

A boy needed urgent oral surgery, including two root canals, the extraction of four teeth, and a partial denture. The boy’s family could not afford his dental costs. Small Angels paid the balance of the boy’s surgery costs.

Six students from a local elementary school wanted to attend science camp but their parents could not afford to send them. Small Angels paid to send all six students to camp.

A day porter, who spent every day on his feet, suffered severe foot pain. After several failed treatments, a podiatrist recommended surgery. Small Angels paid for the surgery.

A boy was diagnosed with Gaucher’s Disease and Muscular Dystrophy at birth. During his teenage years, the diseases stripped him of his ability to walk. Every year, the l2th grade class at his school takes a 6week trip to Europe, which is the highlight of their high school experience. Although the teen was able to raise the money for his own trip, he could not afford to pay for the costs of a companion to provide him with the care he required during the trip. Small Angels’ Board unanimously approved a gift for the boy’s companion, which would allow him to take his senior trip with his classmates.
