Housing / Shelter
Angels’ Arms is dedicated to providing and supporting loving homes for foster children by keeping brothers and sisters together within a nurturing family until a forever home is found. In our ten homes, Angels’ Arms provides much more than a “roof” for our foster parents and children. Our foster families receive numerous services and resources, from monthly special activities and meals, to clothing and lessons for the kids. We host numerous fundraising events throughout the year and we do not receive any STATE, FEDERAL OR UNITED WAY FUNDING.

While offering students in grades K-12 with Individual Education Plans (IEP’s) an alternative education, our Emerson Academy Therapeutic School promotes successful learning behaviors and outcomes. The Parenting Education Classes provides an interactive instruction based environment to re-establish and promote healthy nurturing relationships between parents and children over a 10, 12, and 16 week session.
Beyond Housing exists because home matters. We began with actual houses and housing preservation, focusing on quality and stability to give people a place to start. But there is more to a home than the house – home is about the life that happens in and around the house, as well as the life that fuels and draws out the best of the people within it. Our focus is on improving people’s lives in a holistic manner and in helping entire communities become better places to live.

In the spirit of open intake, services will be offered to all youth who seek help, with a priority of concern and commitment to those for whom no other service is available.
