Our Homes

What It Takes to Upkeep Our Homes

Volunteers at GoldwoodWhen you own a home, it often seems like there’s a never-ending list of projects and things to fix – some major, some minor … but all necessary to keep your home comfortable, safe and secure. Keeping everything in working order just makes sense. After all, for most of us, our home is our single biggest financial investment.

The same is true at Angels’ Arms, except we are keeping up with the needs at 12 different homes. And when we invest in upkeep for each house, we are not only enhancing 12 buildings, we are also investing in the lives of children.

With 12 homes, our maintenance and repair list is always long. Fortunately, Angels’ Arms has many volunteers and professional partners who help with the monumental task of making sure that our homes meet the needs of large, active families. Angels’ Arms has always succeeded because of the incredible commitment of volunteers, donors and businesses, and we are thankful for those who volunteer their time and expertise to paint, landscape or do minor repairs.

Yet as we continue to add homes, Angels’ Arms has a significant and growing need for our friends and donors to support the needs of our homes, which are at the heart of our mission.


Here are a few ways you can help:

Tom at CastlemanMake a donation to our Home Maintenance Fund – we use this fund throughout the year to purchase materials and supplies, pay for labor, and hire contractors and subcontractors when needed.

Donate gift cards for home stores such as Home Depot, Lowes or Hoods. 

Host a supply drive for items such as:

  • Paint brushes and rollers – all sizes;
  • Painters tape and tarps;
  • Joint compound, spackle, caulk, utility knives;
  • Rakes, wheelbarrows, shovels;
  • Work gloves;
  • Batteries, lightbulbs and furnace filters;
  • Gardening tools, tree trimmers, hedge shears;
  • Yard waste bags.

Join our volunteer “on call” team for minor repairs – if you have specific skills such as plumbing, electric, carpentry, painting or landscaping, we would love to add you to our list of potential volunteers to contact when specific needs come up. We also could use some volunteers with some “muscle” or who don’t mind getting a little messy.

Gather a group of friends or co-workers and adopt a house for on-going maintenance – a quarterly work day would make a huge difference at any of our homes!

Another Graduate in the Angels’ Arms Family


Jasmine's Graduation

We felt so much joy as we watched Jasmine walk across the stage at her graduation this past weekend. Jasmine is the oldest of our Angels’ Arms young adults. She lived in the inaugural Angels’ Arms’ home for over 10 years but her journey to her diploma was not an easy one. Having worked through many personal challenges and hardships, Jasmine graduated as a Pharmacy Technician from St. Louis College of Health Careers on April 2 and is now employed in her field. Her face glowed with pride as she was able to share this long-awaited moment with her family and friends.

Jasmina, like her sister Monique (pictured) has proven that no matter the barriers we face, strength and perseverance can see us through to the end. To see the smiles on these sisters’ faces speaks volumes. We’re so proud of Jasmine and look forward to assisting many more youth in the Angels’ Arms Life Launch program to achieve their goals.
