Community Outreach Services

Our Community Outreach Services is about moving beyond the walls of our organization and engaging with people who are alienated from mainstream support and services. We aim to bring aid to our homeless living in the streets, alleys, cars, parks, tents or woods we also seek to find out how may we be of service to our homeless families living in motels and hotels.

Angels On Wheels Charity Organization are in the community bringing resources such as donated clothing, shoes, and socks, underwear, backpacks for the children, school supplies, coats, and other necessities.

We also deliver prepared Bag Lunches, Home Cooked Meals and Hygiene Items for our homeless living in various Shelters, the Tent Community and the homeless living temporarily in the Motel/Hotel Community.

Mobile Outreach Services

Our Mobile Outreach Service provide Transportation support designed specifically to assist our homeless veterans, families, and youth living in Homeless Shelters. The Angels help with transporting our homeless community to various events such as soup kitchens, housing appointments and dentist/doctor appointment.

Did you know that one-half of Americans 60 and older do not have access to public transportation? And that more than half of all non-drivers 60 and older stay at home in a given day because they don’t have transportation options. Those in rural areas and small towns are particularly affected because the transportation options are limited.

The Food For Life  Commodity Supplemental Food Program is the only USDA nutrition program that provides monthly food assistance specially targeted seniors living on a fixed income. The program is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of participants, supplementing diets with a monthly package of healthy, nutritious USDA commodities.

As research has consistently identified that there are a lack of resources to assist with delivering this food to our seniors. Angels On Wheels Charity Organization is a partner agency of the Fredericksburg Food Bank Fredericksburg, Virginia.  Through this partnership, we collaborate to fill the gaps in the food supply chain in the areas we serve by providing delivery services.

Volunteer Support Services

Preventing homelessness and ending hunger is a challenging goal to achieve, and we can if we all play a role in the fight. We can only accomplish it with the help of people who are fortunate enough to live better lives. We believe that we cannot have a positive impact on our homeless and hungry neighbors lives without the help of volunteers.

We understand that volunteers are as much valuable to us as they are to other organizations who are working for the same cause as our organization. We believe there is strength in numbers when working with our Partners in the community. Together we can make a difference in our communities.

 

That’s why we have dedicated our volunteer support services to help other organizations and community partners achieve the missions because we are all on the same mission.

All volunteers are asked to complete Volunteer Application prior to participating. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Minimum age for volunteering is 10 years old.
