Angel Guardians, A Place to Grow a Place to Go!
Of course we love doing great things!
We also like doing great things with great people!
Having a great place to do them with great people is even better!
Ensuring that great people get to do great things long after we are gone is the greatest reward!
Angel Guardians is that place.
Angel Guardians is full of great people! They have a great environment that has been created through hard work perseverance and sheer determination. Life is a puzzle isn’t it? Don’t we all need a place to figure out where we fit in?
When you look at all of the reasons why they couldn’t the Malone Family saw all of the reasons that they could. They started it and are now passing it on to grow! Did you know they love volunteers? It is a great place to fit in and be accepted.
It isn’t an easy road to walk, caring so deeply for those that may be different than you, those that society doesn’t understand, and when there is a pile of red tape involved things can get even trickier. The road isn’t with out bumps and they’ve hit one. But if the past is any indicator, they are going to rise over this one and become even better! This is their bump! Channel 7 KETV NEWS
It is an important road. This is a big bump. Your help and influence would be beneficial. A great thing to do would be to contact your state senator to voice your support for this program. Even better, invite them to have lunch with you at the Free Lunch Cafe!!

Those who have the least are likely to offer the most.
I think that is something valuable. When you look at this community from the outside you surely may see that these are the least capable… what you learn when you open the door is that they are the most capable.
Their giving goes 100% day in and day out. Their hearts are wide open and you are invited to become a part of this magical place. There are significant things that happen here!
Someone is going to start speaking to others for the first time.
Someone is going to give hugs for the first time. Someone is going to get hugged for the first time.
Skills are being taught, that may start with the simplest of things, and then extend to becoming a person who takes on leadership roles and thrives in environments outside of Angel Guardians. You never know how far you can go until you are give the opportunity to soar!
That is what Angel Guardians does. It gives individuals with physical and mental difficulties a place to become whole!
A place that accepts them for who they are appreciates them for what they can do and develops their abilities further. Their skills are maximized, creating more astute, determined, and powerful individuals, who themselves start affecting change in others.
Everyone of the clients at Angel Guardians is an individual, they are looked at not as numbers but as who they are and what they can do the best, and what they love to do the most. This is tangible.
There is an art center, which produces necklaces, cards, and other gallery pieces that are available for purchase, they have an artist in residence that teaches them different techniques and expands their knowledge. An individual may be suited to beading and love to create wearable pieces. Another, may prefer to sew, or cut, in the sewing center. If they get bored or master one type of skill they can move to a different area every day brings different rotations! Donate to help the Art Center Here!
The Free Lunch Cafe (Learn more) opened while we were there, it is a place where anyone can go to get a free lunch and donations are accepted for your meal. They have great nutritious food that comes from the heart. You’ll be waited on, your water poured, your dishes picked up and your food delivered hot and fresh.
The clients of Angel Guardians are also able to participate in social activities. They have a place to come that no one stares at them, thinks that they are different, or that they are out of place. This is in fact their place. The place that they can come, and count on coming to feel important, see their friends and do fun things, like water balloon races, or movie night with popcorn. Play pool or just listen to the music.
Places like this are important. These people are an important part of our society, they give us much to strive for. Unwavering love, the capacity to do their very best at what ever they do. The desire to continue to grow, the drive to be near others and build relationships. Things that are missing in many areas of society today.
The clients of Angel Guardians, teach us all to be more patient, to be more grateful, to be more understanding, and compel us to look at those different from us with as much value as gemstones. Treasured, each one of these individuals have the ability to impact lives in ways that others cannot.
They deserve to continue to thrive and have an environment where they are able to safely grow and develop their gifts talents and abilities to serve others. While having a place to be understood is important, it isn’t a place that is designed to hide them from public view or to not be involved in everyday things that others are. These opportunities are provided and those who are ready and excited to do so can transfer to jobs out in the public sector with extra confidence, skills, and abilities that have been proven over their time training at Angel Guardians.

This all comes at a price. One family started this whole endeavor, and has brought others on board to insure success, change is hard for everyone, and Angel Guardians is undergoing significant changes to stay relevant and continue to provide the best support for those individuals with developmental disabilities and physical limitations.
