Angels' Place


Raised of $5,000


Angels ' Place is a local charity serving children with life threatening illnesses and their families in the greater New Orleans area and across Louisiana.  Through our programs, we currently serve over 80 children and their families.

Children’s respite service is our ongoing mission. When a child has a life-threatening illness, cancer or otherwise, it affects the whole family. The fight to preserve a child’s life is a tough one, so our respite volunteers are there to lend a hand when these families need any kind of basic help around the house or at the hospital. Sometimes, just having a shoulder to lean on makes all the difference.

Angels’ Place is most well-known for our annual Christmas gift drive for the children of client families.  With the help of volunteers and donors, we give Santa a hand in making sure every Angels’ Place family gets a little Christmas cheer, especially if one of the kids will have to spend the holidays in the hospital.

In addition to respite care and Christmas, Angels' Place provides school supplies, tickets to sporting and family events, Thanksgiving meals, a gift card service for unexpected expenses that may occur, and holiday family parties . All of this is offered at no cost to the families.
