Veiw From A Recent Visit
We at The Misfits Angel Network Inc. consider our team to be both fortunate and blessed as we have many faces who contribute and assist our efforts on a daily basis. We are thankful for each and every contribution and contributor.

We have had the good fortune of witnessing a tireless core team of  campaigners, volunteers, and fundraisers.

To all those who have walked the streets alongside us to feed the hungry, to those who have contributed funds, prepared the meals, assembled the care packs, raised awareness, donated much needed supplies clothes and hope, we celebrate you. For you are the backbone of this organization. We could not do what we do without you.

Unfortunately, the battle we face continues to grow as poverty takes its toll on our neighbors without residence. We continue to look to our supporters who offer hope for a brighter tomorrow for those in need. We also vow continue to open our minds and hearts to all ideas that would raise awareness or help in our relief efforts.

The Misfit Angels Family also prides itself in Our Dylan Thomas Project. Through the support of volunteers we have been able to grant funds to children who have a passion for the arts. Children who needed a little extra support to continue to spread their wings through following the passion of their gift.

To those who have made a difference to our littles by supporting the Dylan Thomas Project for children of the arts we Thank You. The Smiles go for miles when a little gets to travel the road to their dreams.

Our organization is 100% volunteer, allowing all contribution to be distributed to those in need. If you or someone you know wishes to contribute or volunteer, please let us know. We would be more then grateful to include you in our journey to a hopeful tomorrow.
