ATFY Community Involvement


ATFY Community Involvement

Angels There For You™ is devoted to improving lives in many ways, both within your community and through our contribution to child sponsorship throughout the world.

In 2000, our CEO Patricia Cruz, along with five others formed Senior Link Independent Living Society in response to the continuing government cuts to services for seniors, who often did not have a family member nearby and needed someone to speak for them. Today, the Canadian government continues to make these cuts and our organization continues to be as relevant as ever.

Angels There for You™ uses its financial resources and time to support Senior Link, now known at Boomers Link. The organization recognizes that isolated seniors are some of the most vulnerable members of our society and this group will continue to grow in size into the future.  They publishes a quarterly newsletter that helps numerous isolated seniors find resources in the community.  Currently, Boomers Link has well over 200 members and is engaged with the local senior community in numerous ways. Find out more at http://boomerslink.org/.

Our agency also devotes a portion of their funds to sponsor close to a dozen of children worldwide. We have worked with SOS Children’s Villages for many years and committed to growing the number of children we extend education and sustenance in their formative years.
