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

Thank you community partners for sharing smiles with the Angels!

These little children are over the moon happy to be living normal lives and participating moms and dads!

Welcome back meeting from COVID-19

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!

JOIN US APRIL 10TH 2021 FOR A SPECIAL CELEBRATION – OUR BLUE RIBBON GALA

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!

WE LOVE THE ANGELS!

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.

WE LOVE THE ANGELS!

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.

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!

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

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!

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…

Angels Against Abuse Gives HOPE,
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow….

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.

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 have chipped in some more funding to assist with this epidemic!

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.

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!

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 respectThe Campbell Park Elementary School (First Five Program) is under way and changing lives even during the Pandemic.

The Angels will be getting uniforms, backpacks,m school supplies and tablets for learning. These little children are over the moon happy to be living normal lives and participating moms and dads! each other and understand that every day is a blessing and loving one another is so much easier than not!

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.

Directions for Living – During the Pandemic, there have been so many emergency needs and families in desperate need of everything. 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.

We are HOPEFUL To Be Able To Meet Soon

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

ARE YOU TIRED OF MASKS YET?

We Still Are Planning To Meet in August If All Goes Well

Please mark your calendars for our Angel Meeting
August 11th, 2020
8:30 am to 9:30 am

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.
