BLUE RIBBON GALA
NEW DATE
PLEASE CHECK YOUR CALENDARS

FRIDAY OCTOBER 22ND 2021

PLEASE SEE FULL DETAILS BELOW

A NEW DATE FOR OUR BLUE RIBBON GALA

As all of you know, our April 10th 2020 Annual Blue Ribbon Gala was postponed several times in 2020. The Angels felt for sure that the April 10th, 2021 date would work, but unfortunately COVID is still standing in the way so we are now looking at Friday, October 22nd, 2021 as the date for our Annual Blue Ribbon Gala. I would like to thank each of you that have been a support for our Gala and also thank you for your patience throughout this past year for the changes we have had to make. Since the Blue Ribbon event is our only awareness event that allows us to sustain the programs we provide to our community partners, it is important that we find a way to make it happen. The Angels feel that later this year will allow us sufficient time to work through COVID and have an amazing event that will be a celebration of being together while raising funds to touch the lives of the children and youth we advocate for throughout the year.

Every dollar we receive goes directly to one of our programs that make a difference in the lives of the child. Last year tested all of us and we are ALL stronger than ever to have survived such a challenging time but imagine how difficult it has been for these vulnerable children who have already suffered so much. We HOPE you will join us October 22nd, 2021 and help us make a difference and celebrate our ability to adapt to change! Again, thank you for your patience and understanding through the many changes we have had to make due to COVID guidelines.

JOIN US OCTOBER 22ND, 2021 FOR A SPECIAL CELEBRATION OUR
ANNUAL BLUE RIBBON GALA

EXCITEMENT IS IN THE AIR
NEW ANGEL PROGRAMS 2021

Directions for Living (DFL)
Campbell Park Elementary & Kings Highway Elementary Schools

BIG NEWS
298 CHILDREN’S
LIVES CHANGED FOR GENERATIONS TO COME…

Campbell Park Elementary School Pre-K First Five Program/BabyCAT started in 2020 and Kings Highway Elementary School in 2021. The Angels partnered with Directions for Living to launch a new program specifically designed to provide an Intensive In-home Service for children under 5, which is also referred to as the “First Five Program”. Their success is largely attributed to the piece of the puzzle that the Angels provide, which Directions refers to as “The Secret Sauce”, our Clinical Consultant. The Clinical Consultant works intensely with the children and their behavioral issues, the teachers, and the parents to assure the success of this program. There is a sense of normalcy and consistency in their lives during their most critical years of development. The Angels are extremely excited to partner with Directions on this program since it accomplishes our mission of breaking the pattern of abuse! Our focus is to do anything possible to eliminate abuse and allow children to grow into healthy and happy adults. As of this writing the success of this program is at 98% and this model has received a lot of attention by funders. Thanks to the success of this program and our involvement, we are now able to move into another Pre-K school in Clearwater called Kings Highway Elementary. We believe this is only the beginning and other schools will follow. The ripple effect of the success of this model not only impacts the child, but it also impacts our community when you convert the cost of the child welfare system every time a child is removed and becomes another statistic in the foster care system. As of this update, 298 children are not going into the foster care system thanks to this program.

Guardian ad Litem Foundation (GAL)

Opportunity Outreach
Dream, Believe, Succeed!

GUARDIAN AD LITEM
DREAM it, BELIEVE it, SUCCEED

The Angels are so proud to once again work with the Guardian ad Litem Foundation to help address the needs of the children they advocate for 24/7. With visitations down due to COVID, and schools being closed for almost all of 2020 and the beginning of 2021, there are requests for these children to try and live as normal a life as possible and give them a sense of normalcy in their lives. The Opportunity Outreach Program is a direct benefit to children allowing them to have real, “normal” kid experiences. These funds help to make sure that they can participate in the school, church, and/or community activities that they are interested in without putting the burden of funding on the child or foster parent. Some examples of funding requests include:

  • Registration fees for school sports and the equipment needed to participate.
  • Going on a school field trip or church/YMCA outing
  • Going to homecoming or prom and purchasing a dress or suit
  • Getting a bike
  • Being able to purchase school pictures
  • Taking dance, karate, or music lessons after school
  • Covering the cost of a cake for a birthday party
  • Attending summer camp
  • Taking swim lessons

This program will give Hope to children who often have little to smile about. It is the little things that could potentially turn a child’s life around, and if one wish granted can make a difference in their lives, the Angels will make that happen!

Look what’s inside our
Angel Baby Mouse Nibbles Bags

The Kind Mouse
Angel Baby Mouse Nibbles Program

The Kind Mouse & Angels Against Abuse, Angel Baby Mouse Nibbles Program is a new program that we are very excited about! These baby bags will be filled with items specifically for infants that will be distributed to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office to assist with baby needs and urgent items for babies when removed. There has been a big increase in 2020 infant removal and this is a concern that needed to be addressed. The Angels have partnered with The Kind Mouse to make sure no babies are going without! These baby bags will include items that will make a difference until they are placed with relatives or in foster care. The bags will include pre-mixed formula or baby food depending on the age of the infant, diapers, wipes, baby wash, diaper rash ointment, clothing based on age and gender of infant, washcloths, bibs, baby book, pacifier, rattles, and baby bottles. The Sheriff’s office said the average removal per month of infants right now, is around 15-17 a month. We feel this is a need that should be addressed.

FRIENDS OF THE CHILDREN

The Angels are proud to once again partner with the Friends of the Children Mentoring Program in 2021. Thank you for your tireless effort and commitment to dedicate 12 1/2 years to children who need guidance and a mentor to guide them through life’s many challenges. These amazing individuals are changing lives for generations to come and the Angels are proud to be a part of their mission.

140,000 TUMMIES FILLED IN 2020

Thank You Gina for all you do in our community to take care of the hunger needs of children and families. YOU are amazing and the Angels are so happy to partner with you!

HEALTHY START PAT+ MISSION STATEMENT

Healthy Start PAT focuses on reducing infant mortality and morbidity rates in the community by providing comprehensive case management and support services to pregnant and parenting substance abusing women with children ages 0-18 months. The Angels have partnered with them for the past several years through our Christmas Giving and our Angel Assistance Programs. Throughout the year when we receive requests for the moms or their babies, we address those needs quickly to make sure their needs are met.

SHARE SOME NEWS!

We would love to share some good news to our Angels, Friends and Families that receive this newsletter.

Please Mark your calendars for August 21st, 2021, the famous Kind Mouse Mousequerade! The Kind Mouse never wants a child to go to bed hungry and thanks to Gina Wilkins, the Founder & President, Children in our community get their little tummies filled, but without the support of our community, The Kind Mouse would not be able to accomplish this.

The Angels are proud to be a partner with The Kind Mouse and be a part of assisting with this terrible pandemic of hunger that we have in our community.

Thank you Gina for all you do!

OUR NEXT MEETING SCHEDULED MARCH 9TH 2021

It is our plan to resume our regular monthly meetings starting in March! We are hoping that we can make it happen but we need to have our attendance high enough to warrant a meeting. If you would please contact me via email ([email protected]) as soon as you receive this newsletter and let me know if you would be in attendance, I can get an idea of whether or not to have a March Angel Meeting. Of course we will adhere to all the necessary guidelines due to COVID, but we need to get back to some sort of normalcy in the next few months so we can continue to grow and make a difference in the lives of the children we advocate for. Our meeting have always been a source of information and sharing and it takes each of you to help make a difference in building our awareness in the community. PLEASE try to attend!

CHRISTMAS GIVING 2020 ANGEL STYLE

When our community leaders walked into our Angel Visitation Center, it was a site to behold! Even though we were unable to do our annual Christmas Party to distribute the gifts, it was a beautiful two days for the agencies we partnered with. Thanks to the generous hearts of our amazing Christmas Angels, this year was the best ever for the hundreds children we served. Each agency had their specific date and time to pick up gifts and carry them away. There were trucks, vans, cars and suvs ready and excited to pick up all the bags of gifts for every child. At the conclusion of our final day, the Angels knew once again their mission was accomplished and there would be a lot of joy and smiles Christmas Morning. We will be sharing some of the feedback we received both in this January Newsletter and our February Newsletter because we know how important it is to pass on to our readers and donors the amazing difference they are making in these children’s lives. There are no words to express our appreciation and gratitude to all those that participated in our 2020 Christmas Program, especially while dealing with COVID the entire year!

God has blessed the Angels beyond belief and we are so grateful! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

FRIENDS OF THE CHILDREN

The Friends of the Children want to thank you and the Angels, Roadmaster and all who help make all 55 of our youth Christmas a great one it put smiles on their faces as well as tears in the caregivers eyes. The Youth all said that it was the best Christmas ever the younger youth were very happy to receive the tablets as well for Christmas. Angels we are so grateful for your love and support that you give us here at Friends of the Children Tampa Bay,

Love all of the Friends and Staff.

THESE PICTURES ARE STOCK PICTURES VS ACTUAL PHOTOS DUE TO THE CONFIDENTIAL NATURE OF CHILDREN IN THE CHILD WELFARE SYSTEM.

Something to Smile About.

The holiday gifts were a huge success. The families were very thankful. The children were able to get everything from their lists and more. The children were so happy to have gotten so many great gifts. The families were also very thankful to get some of the household necessities that they needed to continue to get by. Because of Angels Against Abuse, these families had a wonderful Christmas. The parents were so thankful since there was so much stress over the holidays due to their financial hardships. These generous donations gave both these families a Christmas that they otherwise wouldn’t have had.

Thank you so much for your generosity for these families over the holidays. Without all the Christmas Angels, these families would not have had Christmas!

WE LOVE THE ANGELS

WE LOVE THE ANGELS!

A MESSAGE FROM THE ANGELS

The Angels are so proud to have provided Christmas to approximately 400 children this year to our community partners from Directions for Living, Friends of the Children, Healthy Start PAT+ and the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office CPI Division. This is only thanks to the generosity of amazing individuals, businesses and organizations who wanted to make sure that children who have little to smile about have a Christmas to Remember. Even with COVID, the Angels made it happen Angel Style. I would like to personally thank everyone who participated in our 2020 Christmas for their generous hearts.

Sandy Kearney, Founder
Angels Against Abuse
Thank You From The Bottom Of Our Hearts

Live your life so that your children can tell their children that you not only stood for something wonderful – you acted on it

That is what each of you did!

Directions for Living

Dear Angels Against Abuse – thank you, thank you, thank you! Your support of the children Directions for Living (DFL) serves this Christmas was truly amazing. Not only did the Angels fill complete wish lists for 31 children in need from our Children’s Services, gifting them exactly what they asked Santa for, but – as always – the Angels stepped up for last-minute needs as well. A total of 83 children and their families experiencing housing instability were placed in hotel/motels at the last minute, through the support of DFL’s Homeless Services, to have a safe place to spend Christmas off the streets. As you could imagine, these parents were not able to provide gifts for their children in these circumstances…and that’s where the Angels stepped in! Within just moments of our last minute request, Angels were able to provide a bag for each child and allowed us to empty out Santa’s Corner with hundreds of gifts for these kids.

The children LOVED their gifts. They were completely surprised and genuinely relieved that Santa had found them, even in the hotel! Through your generosity, these children were able to experience some much-needed magic during such a stressful, confusing time. Between our children in hotels and our original 30+ wish lists, DFL kiddos received incredibly special gifts this year, including scooters, Hot Wheels Race Tracks, Barbies, Dinosaurs (that light up and move!), new clothes, and LOL Surprise Dolls – just to name a few!

Not only was your generosity responsible for so many Christmas smiles for the little ones, it was also an unimaginable gift to the parents as well. One parent said “Without these gifts, I truly believed this Christmas was going to be the worst one we’ve ever had. Instead, it turned into the most memorable, happy day for our entire family.” We hope you know the transformative impact of your kindness. Angels Against Abuse was a bright light that brought joy to so many of our children and families who struggled through this holiday season after a particularly tough year. On behalf of the clients, staff, and Board of Directors at DFL, thank you so much.

HEALTHY START PAT+

Our families were incredibly blessed with gifts from Angels. The families were touched and overwhelmed by the generosity. We were worried we would not be able to provide Christmas to any of our families. Instead us and our families were provided with the resilience from Sandy and our friends at Angels. There would not have been Christmas for Parents as Teachers families without Angels Against Abuse.

140,000 TUMMIES FILLED IN 2020

Thank You Gina for all you do in our community to take care of the hunger needs of children and families. YOU are amazing and the Angels are so happy to partner with you!

MOUSE NIBBLES PROGRAM

The Kind Mouse has been busier than ever during this difficult time packing and delivering to hungry children and families by filling there little bellies. No child should go to bed hungry and thanks to the Kind Mouse, little bellies get filled every day! Thank you Gina for paving the way!

Welcome back meeting from COVID-19

WE ARE STILL OPTIMISTIC…

SINCE OUR April 19th 2020 Annual Blue Ribbon Gala was been cancelled for this year, and rescheduled for April 10th 2021, we still are making a difference in the lives of so many children in our community who need our assistance. We have been working hand in hand with our community partners helping to get these children ready for school as well as assisting with the many needs of our homeless families trying to keep their children safe and our of the child welfare system. As you can imagine, since we were unable to host our annual Blue Ribbon event, our ability to raise funds has been challenging. Every dollar we do receive is immediately put directly on a child’s need. If there are any individuals or businesses that would like to help us help our kids, please DONATE. Since the BRG is our only annual event that raises awareness in our community as to what we do for the children who are victims of abuse and neglect, but how we raise the funds to sustain the many programs we provide. Right now we could use your help big or small to help our kids! Every dollar makes a difference. We are stronger than ever to have survived such a challenging time but imagine how difficult it has been for these vulnerable children who have already suffered so much. We could use a lending hand if you can help!

You can make a donation directly on our Facebook page or our website

For those of you that have already donated, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!

CHRISTMAS GIVING 2020
ANGEL STYLE

When you walk into our Angel Visitation Center, it will take your breath away when you see presents in every room and still being dropped off. You will get goosebumps when you see what the Angels have done to brighten Christmas Day for hundreds of children in our community. With 2020 being such a difficult year for so many, try to imagine what children in our community are going through who face abuse and neglect every minute of every day. Even if it is for only one day, Christmas morning will give these children something to lift their spirits and make them smile! That’s our goal and we made it happen. I would like to personally thank my Elf Helpers for all they have done to make this happen.

There are no words to express our gratitude for the individuals, organizations and businesses who too are struggling but have found the time and energy to fulfill children’s wish list. God has blessed the Angels beyond belief and we are so grateful! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Next Tuesday and Wednesday, December 15th and 16th, 4 agencies in our community will need large trucks, vans and people to load all the gifts to distribute to these children. Since we cannot see their faces, we have to rely on our community partners to share the joy and smiles on their faces so PLEASE Community Leaders, do that for the Angels so you can hopefully share at our January 2021 meeting. If for some reason we are still not meeting due to COVID, all your letters and cards will be shared in our January Newsletter.

​PROUD GREAT GRANDMA!
MEET VIOLET REY

I have some very exciting news to share. My oldest granddaughter Kristen, made me a GREAT Grandma, December 2nd 2020 at 7:32 AM with a beautiful baby girl, Violet Rey, weighing in a 6 lbs 9 oz. She is adorable and officially now the youngest Angel! Congratulations Kristen and Andrew on your precious little Angel. Take a peek, she is ADORABLE – Sandy Kearney

Something to Smile About.

Several weeks ago Directions for Living was notified of a mom and her 2 little boys who were living homeless and living in their car. DFL staff quickly jumped into action to get this little family out of their car and into shelter. Unfortunately emergency shelter for families is very limited in Pinellas County and all emergency shelters were full. The DFL staff placed the family in a hotel, but the trauma these children and their mother has experienced has been painful. As of today, for the first time in a long time they all feel safe and cared for. The boys are now attending school, and doing much better academically. Mom is now working and saving to be able to get into a permanent place of her own. DFL with the support of the Angels are providing the children with counseling and case management and the supplies they need for school and “home”. These children will receive Christmas presents and Christmas dinner to brighten their day. The entire little family is so grateful for all of the love and support.

HEALTHY START PAT+ PROGRAM

CONGRATULATIONS EMILY – JOB WELL DONE….
Emily began with the Parents as Teachers Plus Program of Pinellas County (PAT+) May 24, 2019. She had recently admitted herself to treatment for drug addiction. The catalyst to her decision to enter treatment was the discovery that she was five weeks pregnant. Emily lost contact with her older son who was born in 2012 and learned from this heart-breaking experience that she wanted to do better and be an active parent this time. Prior to her entry to treatment, Emily was living with her husband in a tent using drugs. She walked away from this life to get back on track. Despite her trauma, she had earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and business administration. She was determined to remain clean and sober in order to have a healthy pregnancy and maintain custody of her children. She was granted a spot at a local Transitional Housing program in 2019 and gave birth to twins, a boy, and a girl, at 34 weeks. The children were both 4 pounds 6 ounces at birth with health issues. They were monitored in the neonatal intensive care unit until deemed stable. Emily continued to attend her required courses in transitional housing and was an active participant in the PAT+ Program. In August 2020, Emily left transitional housing and began living independently in an income-based apartment. As of this writing she has been promoted at her job and trains others. Her greatest focus in life to be a good parent to her twin babies, who are now walking. Emily has resumed contact with her 8-year-old son who lives in Tampa and is working towards building a healthy relationship with him. Emily exemplifies resilience and a positive attitude and is on a path of healthy parenting.

When COVID first hit our community and our country, it was hard to imagine light at the end of the tunnel. Now we see HOPE on the horizon in the eyes of our children that there is something to look forward to. It has been the mission of the Angels for over 15 years to make a difference in their lives and give them HOPE for a better tomorrow! Thank you Angels for all you do.

Angels Making a Difference

Thank you Angels for giving us warm clothing and shoes during these colder days and thank you for always being there for us making a difference in our lives whenever a need arises.

Mouse Nibbles Program

The Kind Mouse has been busier than ever during this difficult time packing and delivering to hungry children and families by filling there little bellies. No child should go to bed hungry and thanks to the Kind Mouse, little bellies get filled every day! Thank you Gina for paving the way!

FRIENDS OF THE CHILDREN
Thank You Angels

Byron Presley and his team of Mentors just got off a Zoom call with 23 of their families making pizza, salad and cookies. This would not be possible without the generosity of the Angels getting tablets and laptops.

Also, the family who was facing a lot of challenges this past year with their living situation now has a place to live! Thank you Directions for Living and Angels for making this happen. 2020 has been difficult for so many, but having Angels on your side has definitely made a difference.

We have partnered with the Kind Mouse to provide food to our community children (see the attached photos). CPI’s distribute this food to the children and families on our caseloads that have little to no extra income to buy food until their Food Stamps renew for the following month. This has been especially helpful during COVID when job loss and stress levels are on the rise which has a direct correlation to the rise in child abuse. By providing needed food to our families, it allows us to not only engage with the families, but it establishes a rapport with the community that people care and our community families are important. We’ve had several children give positive feedback about the brands of food, equating “name brands” as the “good food, not the store brand stuff” which means a lot to the families that can’t always afford “name brand” food. Because of this partnership, we’ve been able to build better relationships with the communities we serve and an overall higher quality of care. Thank you Kind Mouse for all that you do and thank you to the Angels for making that connection happen!!!!

OUR COVD GIVING ANGELS & CHRISTMAS ANGELS

Special thanks to the following individuals and organizations that have helped us to keep going through COVID and our Christmas Giving Program 2020. Thanks to these amazing individuals, businesses and organizations, we have been able to provide assistance to the many community partners that come to us in time of need and put smiles on the faces of over 300 children in our community who need to Believe in the Magic of Christmas.

From the bottom of our Hearts “Thank You”

Healthy Start PAT+ Program

Healthy Start recently announced that Angels Against Abuse was named their Volunteers of the Year for all we do for the little ones and their moms throughout the year! Thank you so much for this recognition.

The Angel Visitation Center

Despite COVID the Angel Center is doing AWESOME! Ashley has kept it going because she knows how important it is for the children to see their parents. The Angel Center is almost back to full capacity and everyone is following the COVID guidelines. We are so proud to see reunifications taking place during this challenging time and everyone who walks through the front door of the Center feels Welcome and grateful to visit their children. We welcome visitors who would like to have a tour of our facility if you have never seen it. You always walk through the doors with a smile and leave with a smile!

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED…

SHARE SOME NEWS!

We would love to share some good news to our Angels, Friends and Families that receive this newsletter.

Friends of the Children Mentoring Program

Putting a smile on a child’s face is what we do, especially during difficult times like we are all experiencing at this time, but our hearts go out to all the children and youth who already have challenges and obstacles to overcome, so if we can give them Hope and a little something to brighten our day, we are doing our mission! Thank you community partners for sharing smiles with the Angels!

Campbell Park – First Five Program 90% Success

The Campbell Park Elementary School (First Five Program) is proving to be a huge success. Directions for Living is now under way with their second pre-school elementary school. These amazing consultants and teachers are keeping the little ones from entering the child welfare system and breaking the pattern of abuse. It is a WIN for not only the children but the parents and their families for generations to come! GO April Lott, CEO Directions for Living are this huge success. The Angels are privileged to be a part of this wonderful program!

DATE AND TIME
1/12/21 8:30am – 1/12/21 9:30am

Welcome back meeting from COVID-19

SINCE OUR April 19th 2020 Annual Blue Ribbon Gala was been cancelled for this year, and rescheduled for April 10th 2021, we still are making a difference in the lives of so many children in our community who need our assistance. We have been working hand in hand with our community partners helping to get these children ready for school as well as assisting with the many needs of our homeless families trying to keep their children safe and our of the child welfare system. As you can imagine, since we were unable to host our annual Blue Ribbon event, our ability to raise funds has been challenging. Every dollar we do receive is immediately put directly on a child’s need. If there are any individuals or businesses that would like to help us help our kids, please DONATE. Since the BRG is our only annual event that raises awareness in our community as to what we do for the children who are victims of abuse and neglect, but how we raise the funds to sustain the many programs we provide. Right now we could use your help big or small to help our kids! Every dollar makes a difference. We are stronger than ever to have survived such a challenging time but imagine how difficult it has been for these vulnerable children who have already suffered so much. We could use a lending hand if you can help!

You can make a donation directly on our Facebook page or our website

For those of you that have already donated, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!

CHRISTMAS GIVING 2020
ANGEL STYLE

Regarding our Annual Christmas Celebration, due to COVID and the fact that most of the agencies are still working remotely, we will be doing our annual Christmas Celebration different than previous years. We want to make sure everyone feels safe while at the same time we want this event to be special and heartwarming Angel Style! We are working on the details of how to do the gift exchange and we will keep everyone informed of the details in our December Newsletter. WE NEED YOUR HELP especially this year to put smiles on the faces of these children who faced many challenges this year. PLEASE support our Christmas Giving Program by adopting a child for Christmas. When we work in numbers as a TEAM, we can make it happen. Please contact Sandy Kearney at [email protected] if you want to help! We are working with our community partners on getting the wish list for the kids and will pass it on to any individuals or businesses who want to help make a difference in the lives of these children!

THESE PICTURES ARE STOCK PICTURES VS ACTUAL PHOTOS DUE TO THE CONFIDENTIAL NATURE OF CHILDREN IN THE CHILD WELFARE SYSTEM.

Campbell Park Elementary
Definitely Something to Smile About

This past week we held an IDT staffing for JH. Our little JH was able to attend his IDT staffing alongside his mother.

Last year JH was suspended several times and was sent to the behavior room daily. This year he has not went down to the behavior room at all. He was very happy about discussing his improved behavior. JH’s attitude is so positive about this school year and he really enjoys his teacher. When she appeared on the call, he shared that he “loves his teacher so much”.

Without prompting from his therapist, he shared how he knows how to calm himself down. JH stated that he gets “10” points almost every day (students can earn up to 10). This same kid had no friends last year but now was naming at least 3 kids in class he says are his best friends this year.

WE LOVE THE ANGELS!

HEALTHY START PAT+ PROGRAM

We had a mom give birth a month early and she has nothing we got some of the basics for her but was wondering if you could help with anything else. The few things that she could use are a bouncy seat and a baby bath. We appreciate everything you do for us.

When COVID first hit our community and our country, it was hard to imagine light at the end of the tunnel. Now we see HOPE on the horizon in the eyes of our children that there is something to look forward to. It has been the mission of the Angels for over 15 years to make a difference in their lives and give them HOPE for a better tomorrow! Thank you Angels for all you do.

Thank you Angels for our bunk beds, comforter sets and stuffed animals. Our room looks so amazing and we cannot thank you enough for making it happen. We thought we would just be getting a bed, but what you did to give us a happy room was amazing!

Mouse Nibbles Program

The Kind Mouse has been busier than ever during this difficult time packing and delivering to hungry children and families by filling there little bellies. No child should go to bed hungry and thanks to the Kind Mouse, little bellies get filled every day! The Angels are honored to be a part of keeping little tummies full by assisting with this epidemic! Thank you Gina for paving the way!

Healthy Start PAT+ Program

We as an agency have been blessed to deliver food to families on Wednesday. Getting to see the babies go through the bags is so sweet.

Watching the families adapt to zoom visits have been fun. The kiddos are starting to understand how to use the cameras and definitely go crazy with the cameras some days. It definitely makes all of us smile and laugh

OUR COVD GIVING ANGELS

Special thanks to the following individuals and organizations that have helped us to keep going through COVID. Thanks to these amazing people and organizations, we have been able to provide assistance to the many community partners that come to us in time of need.

Thank you Angels for putting smiles on our faces. There are many requests that come your way of all kinds of needs but no matter what the request is, big or small, the Angels move into action to make it happen and brighten our days. Thank you Angels for all you do every day of the year!

Miracle is an infant that was severely dehydrated and malnourished requiring hospitalization. Due to COVID it was very difficult to get with the pediatrician for weekly weigh-ins. The doctor recommended a baby scale and a highchair. The Angels made sure that little Miracle got what she needed so she can thrive.

Children’s Mental Health Initiative works with foster children, children within the dependency system, adopted children from dependency system and many low income families. It is a wonderful initiative that focuses on behavioral health, child’s medical issues, school, really everything to provide quality wrap around care and case management. We work with GALs, CMs, families, providers, the school, everyone involved in the child’s life, offering support and resources.

We have a 4 year autistic child who is a flight risk and has even ran from school. The child was recently adopted from foster care this year and adoptive mom has found little support in the community. The child is in need of a tracker to help keep him safe

To the Angels Against Abuse,
I really want to express my gratitude for the help and assistance you freely provided to my son and I.

My son has behavioral issues which prevents him from playing freely with his peers because we are always worried about him randomly running and getting lost.

This will not only give me peace of mind as a parent but will also give his school teacher piece of mind as well.

Thank you all so much!

Regarding our Christmas Celebration, I did talk to Pasadena Community Church and they are hopeful that they can host this amazing annual event that is currently is planned for December 9th 2020. I will keep everyone informed as we move a little closer. If it is not possible for the Church to accommodate us, we will find an alternative. Hopefully that will not be the case.

We are stronger than ever to have survived such a challenging time but imagine how difficult it has been for these vulnerable children who have already suffered so much. We could use a lending hand if you can help! You can make a donation directly on our Facebook page or our website www.angelsagainstabuse.org.

For those of you that have already donated, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!

September Newsletter

SHARE SOME NEWS!

We would love to share some good news to our Angels, Friends and Families that receive this newsletter. During these times of uncertainty, fear and frustrations, good news gives us Hope and something to brighten our days. We know there is some amazing work being done by so many individuals and agencies in our community so please share your stories so we can pass them on to others. Please email Sandy Kearney at [email protected] and we will make sure your stories are shared in our next newsletter.

Mouse Nibbles Program

The Kind Mouse has been busier than ever during this difficult time packing and delivering to hungry children and families by filling there little bellies. No child should go to bed hungry and thanks to the Kind Mouse, little bellies get filled every day! The Angels are honored to be a part of keeping little tummies full by assisting with this epidemic! Thank you Gina for paving the way!

Healthy Start PAT+ Program

Healthy Start recently announced that Angels Against Abuse was named their Volunteers of the Year for all we do for the little ones and their moms throughout the year! Thank you so much for this recognition.

PINELLAS COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE ANGEL ASSISTANCE

Kelly Johnson, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has requested uniforms, school supplies, tablets, gift cards and other back to school assistance. This is a busy time for the Angels to make a difference in the lives of these children.

Friends of the Children Mentoring Program

Putting a smile on a child’s face is what we do, especially during difficult times like we are all experiencing at this time, but our hearts go out to all the children and youth who already have challenges and obstacles to overcome, so if we can give them Hope and a little something to brighten our day, we are doing our mission! Thank you community partners for sharing smiles with the Angels!

Busy Bees ALL Year Round…

The Angels are excited to assist with the children’s needs during this challenging time. We know how excite the kids are to be returning to school and seeing their friends. Let’s encourage our kids to respect each other and understand that every day is a blessing and loving one another is so much easier than not!

Campbell Park – First Five Program

The Campbell Park Elementary School (First Five Program) is under way and changing lives even during the Pandemic. The Expert is currently working full time with the children and families daily. All services are provided to the children, teachers and parents virtually using Zoom technology. These services are provided at no cost to the families.There is constant oversight to make sure the children are safely housed. There are presently over 100 pre-school and elementary school children attending Campbell Park Elementary who are homeless or housing unstable living in a hotel/motel. The Angels recently provided uniforms, backpacks, and school supplies and tablets for learning. These little children are over the moon happy to be living normal lives and participating moms and dads!

The Angel Visitation Center

Despite COVID the Angel Center is doing AWESOME! Ashley has kept it going because she knows how important it is for the children to see their parents. The Angel Center is almost back to full capacity and everyone is following the COVID guidelines. We are so proud to see reunifications taking place during this challenging time and everyone who walks through the front door of the Center feels Welcome and grateful to visit their children. We welcome visitors who would like to have a tour of our facility if you have never seen it. You always walk through the doors with a smile and leave with a smile!

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED…

Directions for Living

When our good friend Damia Kelly, Directions for Living, sends out a distress signal, the Angels are ready and willing to fulfill the needs of the children and youth who could be or are facing homelessness due to these challenging and difficult times. During the Pandemic, there have been so many emergency needs and families in desperate need of everything and the Angels have filled many requests that will give these families and children Hope for a better tomorrow.

The Angel Resource Center has remained stocked and available for the needs of our community partners. To further assist them during this challenging times, we have had many items shipped directly to them to keep everyone safe and out of harms way.

Making Masks Fun

The Angels feel that if our little ones have to endure a mask, it should be a fun and fancy one so we took on the challenge of creating fun masks for kids starting back to school. We will be providing 250 children’s masks and 100 adult masks to our little ones and big ones who can use a smile!

Contact Sandy Kearney to request masks. We are limited on our supply but will do our best to accommodate you!

[email protected]

To all the first responders, the community leaders, the generous individuals and our Angels who are making a difference in the lives of children and families. Over the past several months you have worked tireless hours to help the children and families in our community who are in need of so much be safe and cared for. To all of our friends and family members who are struggling through this difficult time, our prayers and thoughts are with you!

NEVER lose sight of HOPE, hold on to your FAITH, and know that WE are all in this TOGETHER! God never puts more on our plate than we can handle and there will be brighter days ahead of us. WE all need to pull together as ONE and find PEACE and HARMONY in our days ahead!

STILL NO MEETINGS PLANNED AT PCC

Dear Angels, Friends & Families

I Am Sorry To Once Again Announce NO Meetings Scheduled Right Now,
But Unfortunately COVID Is Still In Charge Of Our Days,

BUT

It’s Still Important We Stay In Touch To Let You Know Our News!
Hopefully Our Monthly News Will Give You An Update of
Angels Making A Difference…

We are HOPEFUL To Be Able To Meet Before 2020 Ends…

But We Are Still Waiting For The Virus To Say Good Bye…
And Life To Get Back To Normal!

It Will Be So Nice To Retire Our Masks & See Everyone’s Smile Once Again

Regarding our Christmas Celebration, I did talk to Pasadena Community Church and they are hopeful that they can host this amazing annual event that is currently is planned for December 9th 2020. I will keep everyone informed as we move a little closer. If it is not possible for the Church to accommodate us, we will find an alternative. Hopefully that will not be the case.

If it is possible to have an Angel Meeting before the year ends, I sincerely hope everyone will do their best to make it. We have lost nearly a year and we need to get back on track again. The children and youth we advocate for are depending on all of us.

JUST HANG IN THERE!

SINCE OUR April 19th 2020 Annual Blue Ribbon Gala has been cancelled for this year, and rescheduled for April 10th 2021, we still are making a difference in the lives of so many children in our community who need our assistance. We have been working hand in hand with our community partners helping to get these children ready for school as well as assisting with the many needs of our homeless families trying to keep their children safe and our of the child welfare system. As you can imagine, since we were unable to host our annual Blue Ribbon event, our ability to raise funds has been challenging. Every dollar we do receive is immediately put directly on a child’s need. If there are any individuals or businesses that would like to help us help our kids, please DONATE. Since the BRG is our only annual event that raises awareness in our community as to what we do for the children who are victims of abuse and neglect, but how we raise the funds to sustain the many programs we provide. Right now we could use your help big or small to help our kids! Every dollar makes a difference. We are stronger than ever to have survived such a challenging time but imagine how difficult it has been for these vulnerable children who have already suffered so much. We could use a lending hand if you can help! You can make a donation directly on our Facebook page or our website www.angelsagainstabuse.org.

For those of you that have already donated, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!

August 2020

Dear Angels, Friends & Families
Not Much Has Changed Since The July Newsletter
BUT
We Have To Stay In Touch…

We are HOPEFUL To Be Able To Meet Before 2020 Ends…

But We Are Still Waiting For The Virus To Say Goodbye…
And Life To Get Back To Normal!

Right now our best way to communicate with one another is through the monthly Newsletter, so please make sure you take the time to read it so you you know what is going on with the Angels and keep us informed on what is going on with you!

ARE YOU TIRED OF

MASKS YET? I AM…

Until further notice, we won’t have meetings at the Church since they are currently closed, but if anyone or a group of 10 would like to get together, I would be happy to make it happen. We had gained so much momentum with our meetings over the past few years, and although I know this will end soon, we have to figure our other ways to stay in touch.

I just cannot wait to see all of my Angels soon! Whether it is an “Air Hug” or a “Real Hug”, I am going to be over-joyed to see all of you again when we can all be together again in the same room. This terrible virus has impacted our world causing a ripple effect of the way we live our lives, but we are still making a difference in the lives of children throughout our community. There are a lot of obstacles and challenges that come our way daily, but we are figuring different ways of getting the job done and still making Angel Magic. There are still some great things happening in spite of what each of us have been faced with and you will have a chance to read about them in our newsletter.

I would like to thank all of my prayer warriors for all your amazing prayers that got me through the month of July. When John, my hubby, got COVID and was in the ICU of Palms of Pasadena, there were days things were not looking very good for him. Thanks to the Heroes who are caring for the hundreds of sick patients, John was able to get through this tough time, but Prayers were the best medicine of all. From the bottom of our hearts, “thank you” for taking time to pray for him. He is still recovering, but he is on the other side of this terrible virus and we are so blessed and grateful.

I was hoping that by September, we could still have our Annual Blue Ribbon Gala that we were all looking forward to. Originally it was scheduled for April 20th 2020 and then moved to September 19th 2020, and now rescheduled for April 10th 2021. Unfortunately we are still under the tough guidelines implemented that does not allow large gatherings of more than 10 guests. Since we were already at 300, the SPYC or any other venue would not allow us to have our event. Plus with having to wear face masks and having to do social distancing, the event would not have been the same! We want our event to be the same success we have enjoyed over the past 13 years so we are hoping that all of you will attend our 2021 Gala that is presently scheduled for April 10th, 2021. This will be a night to remember and we are counting on your support!

We feel that our 2021 Gala will be a true celebration of all we have faced together in 2020 and what we have to look forward to in the future. It will be an AWESOME NIGHT and a FANTASTIC CELEBRATION! PLEASE PLAN ON BEING THERE…

JUST HANG IN THERE!

THANK YOU

Over the past several months you have worked tireless hours to help the children and families in our community who are in need of so much be safe and cared for.

ATTENTION PLEASE

 

SINCE OUR April 19th 2020 Annual Blue Ribbon Gala has been cancelled for this year, and rescheduled for April 10th 2021, we wanted to advise everyone that we were only 2 weeks away from the Gala when COVID changed everything. We were already at 300 guests, all of our silent auction and live auction items were ready to go and life as we knew it stopped! Since this event is our only event that raises awareness in our community as to what we do for the children and families we assist 24/7 who are victims of abuse and neglect, we are hoping that each of you will reserve the 2021 date and be ready to be a part of this special night. Many of our table sponsors had already purchased their tables and we are hoping that we can transfer these sponsorships to our 2021 Gala. Our night will be a CELEBRATION of how we survived a tough year and made it through the year! We are all stronger and better as a result of what we have endured and our 2021 Gala will be special night for so many reasons, so PLEASE Join us for a spectacular evening…

Despite Covid affecting many families being able to visit with their children face to face, the Angel Center has been providing a safe and clean environment for children to be able to visit with their families. This has been a positive and heartwarming experience to able to see the interactions between the parent and children after not being able to see each other in months. The children’s face light up when they see their parents, which makes it what we do at the Center so heartwarming. Ashley, our Angel Center Manager, shared this with me last week:

“Within this year, two families were reunified that had visits at the Angel’s Visitation Center! These families loved utilizing the Angel Center for their visits and did a great job at working their case plan to the very end. Both families have still been coming to the center to visit because they felt that the center offered so much to joy! It’s amazing to see the growth of both the parents and children and we wish them the best in their endeavors after reunification. “

Quote from parent:

“Thank you so much for offering such a beautiful facility for me and my children to visit in. The Angel Center has been a huge help to me and my family, not only by allowing us to visit there, but also by helping us with resources and essential items needed for my children. They have given me diapers, wipes, a pac-n-play, a car seat and much more which helped me during a difficult time in my life. I’m working a steady job, have a place, and I’m working on going back to school to build a better life for my children now that I have them back, thank you!!”

Friends of the Children Mentoring Program

We received our list from the FOTC Mentoring Program that they needed uniforms, school supplies and 5 boy bikes to get ready for school to start August 24th 2020. The Angels love putting smiles on the faces of these children who are looking forward to going back to school!

The Angels are excited to assist with the children’s needs during this challenging time. We know how excite the kids are to be returning to school and seeing their friends. Let’s encourage our kids to respect each other and understand that every day is a blessing and loving one another is so much easier than not!

Pasadena Community Church, Life Enrichment Center
227 70th Street South, St Petersburg, FL

I am really looking forward to seeing all of my special Angels at our August Meeting. Whether it is an “Air Hug” or a “Real Hug”, I am going to be overjoyed to see each of you who will take the time to come and be a part of our meeting.

We are still hoping to have our Annual Gala which we moved to September 19th, but again it depends on what happens over the next few months with the COVD-19 virus. Although we want our event this year, we want it to be the success we have enjoyed over the past 14 years which may mean we need to reschedule to April 2021. As a backup, we are holding April 10th 2021 just in case we need to move it one last time. We will keep everyone in the loop of any changes and a final decision will be made the 2nd week of August regarding this year’s Gala. Just know that whether we have it in 2020 or 2021, the night will be a night to remember and we are counting on your support!

We feel this event will lift everyone’s spirits and bring all of us together to celebrate life and all it brings with its ups and downs and the strength that each of us have to make a difference in the lives of others. Whether we have it in 2020 or 2021, it will be AWESOME!

We know these past few months have been difficult and frustrating, but we are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. We need to stay positive and focus on what is good in our world and pray for those individuals who have suffered so much.

JUST HANG IN THERE!

Thank you so much!”

A BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY
TO OUR OLDEST ANGEL
MY MOM WHO IS TURNING 90 THIS MONTH

My mom is a mom to many of us and especially to me. She touches the lives of so many children with putting their Angel Bags together making sure the bags will put a smile on their face as well as wrapping hundreds of Christmas Presents for our Christmas Celebration! Thank you mom! Happy Birthday from all of us.

Healthy Start had a request for the Angels that came to us around the time of the Pandemic. Samantha is a high risk blind mother who was in need of several items before the birth of her son. COVID-19 hit in her seventh month of pregnancy. Her husband lost his job as a result of the Pandemic and struggled with his own sobriety doing two stents in rehab while COVID-19 was going. Samantha gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy on Mother’s Day 2020. At the babies last doctors appointment they discovered a few different lumps, one in his groin area and a few at the base of his skull. Thanks to the support of the Angels Samantha received the items she was missing to bring a new baby home from the hospital. Without the support of the Angels, she would not have had diapers, wipes and some of the other basic necessities for her new baby boy

Special thanks to Joan C Tiffany for her generosity and kindness for all the brand new clothes she ordered and had shipped from Children’s Place. the shipment arrived with all sizes for boys and girls clothes and shoes. We are surrounded by good people who do amazing things in times of need and with all the negative in our world, sometimes goodness and kindness is overlooked. Thank you so much Joan for making a difference in the lives of children who are looking for a little Hope in their lives.

I am really looking forward to seeing all of my special Angels at our August Meeting. Whether it is an “Air Hug” or a “Real Hug”, I am going to be overjoyed to see each of you who will take the time to come and be a part of our meeting.

We are hoping for a good turnout since our Blue Ribbon Gala was moved to September 19th 2020, and we need all hands on deck to make sure our event can be the success we have enjoyed in past years. It will be a special evening and a great way for everyone to reconnect.

We know these past few months have been difficult and frustrating, but we are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. We need to stay positive and focus on what is good in our world and pray for those individuals who have suffered so much.

JUST HANG IN THERE!

I MISS EVERYONE SO MUCH!

MAY ANGEL MEETING CANCELLED

Pasadena Community Church Still Closed to Meetings

I was really looking forward to seeing all of my special Angels at our May Meeting, but things are still not quite back to normal! It looks like June and July will be more of the same. According to our contact at the Pasadena Community Church, when they do re-open we can only host 10 people… I am pretty sad, but know there is a rainbow in sight as we move forward to the Fall and our AMAZING BLUE RIBBON GALA which is rescheduled to Saturday, September 19th 2020. Details below.

For now our plan is to hopefully meet in August at our regular meeting place which we are hoping will be filled with our Angels. We will keep you posted as we move closer so make sure you keep an eye out for my news updates!

JUST HANG IN THERE!

To all of our Angels who are making a difference in the lives of children and families, to our Community Partners who are working tireless hours to help the children and families in need, to all of our friends and family members who are struggling through this difficult and trying time and to the many individuals who are suffering through the virus, our prayers and thoughts are with each of you!

NEVER lose sight of HOPE, hold on to your FAITH, and know that WE are all in this TOGETHER! God never puts more on our plate than we can handle and there will be brighter days ahead of us. WE all need to pull together as ONE and find PEACE and HARMONY in our days ahead!

We will ALL get through this difficult and trying time and be stronger as we move forward. Remember, whenever life gives you lemons, it is up to us to make lemonade!
