The Sailing Angels Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, based in the Greater Houston area.   As an opportunity for education and recreational therapy, we introduce the joy of sailing to special children with cognitive, physical or emotional needs or chronic illnesses. Also invited are wounded warriors and military veterans.  We encourage the family unit to come.  The special participants are encouraged to work on the boat to the best of their abilities.

Results of this unique ‘hydro-therapy’ can be seen on their happy faces. This is frequently a positive life-changing experience for them … and their families, and those of us who serve them!

Sailing Angels provides our service to ALL in need, including our military, first responders and their love ones.  This includes our service to incarcerated Veterans and their families, many who seem forgotten.  
This past weekend, we were invited to celebrate Christmas with those Veterans in the Ramsey Unit.  They gifted us with a hand-made sailboat.  Thank you, Mark, for your awesome work of art!Image attachmentImage attachment

Meet Elaine
Elaine has been a volunteer and crew member for two and a half years! A few months before she retired Elaine was trying to figure out what to do next and specifically where volunteer and give back to her community. She had a friend who had volunteered with Sailing Angels and inspired her to give it a try! 
“Sailing Angels is so much more than I ever expected! I have met so many awesome people! Children, young adults, Veterans, and caretakers. The Sailing Angels volunteers are a great bunch of people and I have formed new friendships with them, PLUS I get to sail weekly! The small group that runs Sailing Angels are totally dedicated to the happiness of the people we serve and working with them is a joy!”
