Angels of Love is solely run by volunteers. People freely and lovingly give of their time to crafting the angels, each with a specific person in mind. Many hours of care and effort are put into these angels. Without these loving, caring people, there would be no Angels. A great heartfelt thank you goes out to all who are a part of this organization.

We encourage anyone who would like to spend time helping in this program to contact the Angels of Love. We are more than willing to spend time training volunteers in the craft of stained glass making. Our volunteers range from 17 to 86 years old.

A special thank you to Kieth Griess, Willie Zoller, and Diane Nelson our wonderful volunteers, who recently went to be with The Lord. We miss you!!

Angels of Love partners with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department to teach men and women inmate-volunteers to make these beautiful, handcrafted stained-glass Angels. Non-violent detainees from the James A. Musick Jail and the Youth Guidance Center in Santa Ana, California, enthusiastically make Angels that bring hope and inspiration to the community. By volunteering, the inmates and juveniles build self-esteem and become more optimistic about their future.

As of December 2007, approximately 1,500 inmates from the Orange County jail system have participated in the Angels of Love program. All materials and instructional training are provided by Angels of Love at no cost to the County or taxpayers.

To All our Volunteers
"Your hard work and dedication to this program has been such a fantastic help and inspiration to others. Without you we wouldn't be touching and changing lives or reaching all of the hurting people. Thank you and God Bless You."

--Rick and Sally Cryder
