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!

The Sailing Angels Board of Directors is aware of growing concern about the Coronavirus (COVID19) and its impact on the community. Please be assured that nothing is more important than the health and safety of our volunteers and patrons.  Out of an abundance of caution we have made the decision to stop operations for MARCH and APRIL.  We will continually monitor conditions to identify changes that are required for future outings. Once operations for Sailing Angels have resumed, we will post the information on social media and our website. You are invited to register and once operations resume, we will be in touch.

Use the general registration page to sign up for an upcoming adventure.

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.

Laurie Forshage Hanus Darryl Hanus. Oh no! And the Kemah bridge is plenty tall

Perhaps a newbie sailor or out-of-towner??😱

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT! 🔦 Meet Paula!
She has been volunteering with us for 13 years and is one of our longest-serving volunteers! We are grateful for her many years of wonderful service 💙
 What she loves most about SA are the people, both participants and volunteers. To be a part of an organization where she consistently witnesses pure joy is a true blessing.

Paula recalls a particularly special sail:  Captain Dave and I took out a family who had a family member with a terminal illness.  While some would think that was a very sad sail, just the opposite was true.  I witnessed, and felt privileged to be a part of a family making cherishing memories for everyone.

...
Interesting fact, not many people know she has a motorcycle license! 🏍️

Like all of us, Paula is definitely looking forward to the day we can begin to sail again. ⛵

Lets show some love below for our crew on the front line ⬇️❤️Image attachmentImage attachment
