Description

OUR STORY IS OUR MISSION

Holy Angels is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to provide individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities a path to self-fulfillment through education, empowerment, spirituality, independence and work.

At the Holy Angels Autism Center, children, teens and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder are receiving cutting-edge care through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

 

THE BENEFITS OF THE ANGEL RUN
Holy Angels’ David Rice Memorial Walk & Run is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together for a fun event while making a difference in the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. You and your teammates will walk and run along a scenic route in southeast Shreveport. This is the only walk and run held in this area and gives all who participate the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the neighborhoods of Ellerbe Road. You don’t want to miss this unique run that benefits the lives of the residents at Holy Angels!

 

WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?

Although Holy Angels receives Medicaid funding, there is an annual gap of $1.5 million between the funds needed to properly care for those served and the funds provided by Medicaid.

85 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to care for the residents and program participants whose lives have been entrusted to Holy Angels. By registering for Angel Run, you come together with the community for a fun event while making a difference in the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities!
