The following is a brief statement about Angel Helpers - why they are here and what their goals are. So please take your time and read the following information, before proceeding on into the site itself.
Angel Helpers is a program that exists to help out families with children who, for any reason whatsoever, just need some extra love and attention. We are here to give our love, support, caring and understanding to these children and their families.
Angel Helpers matches up an Angel Helper with a child who is in need of some extra T.L.C. outside of his or her own family. The Angel Helper will have different responsibilities toward the child to who they are assigned. If he or she is able to do so, the child will be responsible for staying in touch with his or her Angel Helper. This, of course, may vary from child to child, because of age limitations or other circumstances. If the child can not communicate with the Angel Helper on his or her own, the parent or legal guardian will be responsible for keeping in touch with the Angel Helper assigned to their child. However, we really encourage the child to communicate with the Angel Helper, if at all possible, so the child can form a special bond with the Angel Helper. This will make the experience all the more powerful and meaningful for both the Angel Helper and the child.
Therefore, if you are a person who is 18 years of age or older and would like to take on a child that needs some extra love and attention, please consider signing up to be an Angel Helper. However, PLEASE be sure you can carry out your commitment to the child, to prevent the child from being hurt in the long run. You can always withdraw from the Angel Helper program if and when it becomes too much for you, but PLEASE be sure to let Angel Helpers Staff know ahead of time so that we can give your child with another Angel Helper immediately. This will ensure that neither the child nor the parent is just left in the dark not knowing what is going on, because you can no longer be a part of Angel Helpers.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child who could use some extra love and attention, please feel free to sign up your child for an Angel Helper. However, PLEASE be sure you or your child will be committed to staying in contact with the Angel Helper assigned to you. This will prevent the Angel Helper selected for your child from quitting the program altogether because of a lack of communication from you or your child. Angel Helpers does not want any child in their program to be left stranded without an Angel Helper for any length of time. Also, please know that if for any reason you or you child can not stay in contact with your Angel Helper for an extended period of time, or if you wish to withdraw your child from the program, you will need to contact the Angel Helpers Staff and let us know ahead of time. This way, we can notify your child's Angel Helper so that the helper is not left wondering what happened to the child they were assigned to take care of, and so that the child is not left without an Angel Helper to take care of them.
