The Sailing Angels Foundation offers free sailing excursions on a daily basis for education, respite and recreational therapy. Originally serving individuals with cognitive challenges, physical challenges and life threatening illnesses, we have since expanded our reach to include those suffering from severe traumatic experiences and socially challenged children. These guests include “at risk” children, military veterans, first responders, families of the incarcerated, bereaved families and those recovering from domestic violence. Families and caretakers are always welcome on these trips. Our mission is to bring peace, healing and happiness to the individual and their families. The program is often transformational to the individuals and their families. We create priceless memories, one sail at a time!

The Sailing Angels Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, based in the Greater Houston area.

The Sailing Angels Board of Directors has made the decision to begin our sails again. For the health and safety of our volunteers and patrons, due to COVID, we require masks to be worn by everyone on the boat. We are beginning slowly, with just a few outings.  If you have registered for a sail, we will be in touch. If you would like to reach out to us, please send an email to info@sailingangels.org.

Use the contact page to address your questions, express interest about volunteering or donating, or to sign up for our newsletter.  To look at our recent newsletter please click here.Use the general registration page to sign up for an upcoming adventure.

Congratulations to Debbie Hughes, Founder and Chairwoman of the Board, for being selected by AIG Life & Retirement Services for the 2020 Community Spirit Award, which honors employees who go above and beyond in serving their community. The Sailing Angels Foundation has received a charitable contribution on Debbie’s behalf. For more information, please click here.

Thank you for being a long-time collaborating partner of the ReelAbilities Houston Film & Art Festival. Recognizing the importance of reducing stigmas, changing perceptions, & eliminating barriers is a commonality between our organizations!

ReelAbilities is a wonderful set of events. Can’t wait to see this years performances!

Maria are you familiar with Soleana Stables? They asked me if I knew Maria with SA but I don't remember the last name.

Miss you!
