The Sailing Angels Foundation offers free sailing excursions on a daily basis for education, respite and recreational therapy. Originally serving individuals with cognitive challenges, physical challenges and life threatening illnesses, we have since expanded our reach to include those suffering from severe traumatic experiences and socially challenged children. These guests include “at risk” children, military veterans, first responders, families of the incarcerated, bereaved families and those recovering from domestic violence. Families and caretakers are always welcome on these trips. Our mission is to bring peace, healing and happiness to the individual and their families. The program is often transformational to the individuals and their families. We create priceless memories, one sail at a time!

The Sailing Angels Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, based in the Greater Houston area.
