Street Angels USA Set to Launch in Wilmington the Spring of 2018.
Who are we?
Helen Keller said it best: "Alone we can do so little [but] together we can do so much." This is the motivation behind Street Angels USA. As a community we are teaming up to provide basic needs and the tangible love of Christ to anyone we meet on the streets through organized teams.
Where do we hit the streets?
By focusing on areas dense with bars and clubs and the occasional festival or concert, our teams are trained to handle a multitude of needs. Our angels are equipped with a bottled water for someone who is dehydrated, flip flops for those with hurting feet and provide first aid attention for the lightly injured. At the same time, we will identify any vulnerable or severely injured persons, and call the necessary authorities to further help. For someone simply in need of a safe ride home, we'll guide them to a trustable taxi or uber. Lastly, we will hand out sweet treats to those having a sour night.
What's our story?
We are a community-focused organization that originally launched in the United Kingdom under the Christian Nightlife Initiative Network (CNI). After spreading throughout the UK and Europe, reducing crime rates of up to 57% (you read that right - 57%!), we're kicking off in the USA. Wilmington, North Carolina is our starting point in ministering to our local nightlife and in helping make our streets safe again.
Are you a bar owner or concert coordinator who'd like us to come to your venue or event? We'd be happy to walk the nearby streets or set up a tent to help those in need. Give us a call or send us an email today!
Are you a church leader interested in partnering with us? Our hope is to join forces across denominations to "make city streets like new again" (Isaiah 58:12). Send us an email or give us a call today!
