About Angel’s Place

Angels’ Place was founded in 1997 by Anita Gilford. When her own son was in treatment for cancer, she found that there were few places her family could turn to for help. Because of this, she promised to dedicate her life to helping seriously ill children and their families. Her son won his fight against cancer and is now living a normal life while Ms. Gilford fulfills her promise through Angels’ Place.

Children’s respite service is our ongoing mission. Respite volunteers watch over Angels’ Place children at the hospital or provide household aid to the family free of charge. We usually receive clients through referrals from the Children’s Hospital of New Orleans however, we can take home referrals from the parents or guardians of the sick child. Children undergoing treatment there may have a social worker send us a referral on their behalf.

When a child has a life-threatening illness, cancer or otherwise, it affects the whole family. The fight to preserve a child’s life is a tough one, so our respite volunteers are here to lend a hand when these families need any kind of basic help around the house or at the hospital. Sometimes, just having a shoulder to lean on makes all the difference.

Angels’ Place is probably most well-known for our annual Christmas gift drive for the children of client families. With the help of volunteers and donors, they give Santa a hand in making sure every Angels’ Place family gets a little Christmas cheer, especially if one of the kids will have to spend the holidays in the hospital.
