•AngelAID is a 100% donation/volunteer-based organization; we have no paid employees. Through private contributions AngelAID is able to provide various types of relief to hundreds of families in the Jacksonville area.•Many families in this situation have no where to turn for support and understanding when they are forced to face the reality that their child has a devastating disease.•Often these families feel alone and abandoned while they struggle to discover any situation that will help their family meet just basic daily needs. AngelAID strives to help these children have the best possible “todays” while preparing their child to “go and meet God” (as Tashia would say).•AngelAID understands the needs of these families and is able to provide direction and guidance toward solutions of problems for which the families are often unaware are needed or available.• AngelAID is driven by the needs of our families through our case files. •CLICK on How AngelAID Started to read about the Angel who inspired this vision.

About AngelAIDAngelAID is a grass-roots, 501(c)3 non-profit community based organization founded and run by Carl and Arlene Shipley in memory of Tashia (Butler) Shipley who died of AIDS from sexual abuse. On a daily basis we are helping, and have helped over 2,000 children in our tri-county Jacksonville, Florida USA area (and their families) who have life-threatening diseases or situations. We are serving children with over 100 different diagnosis.
HOW ANGELAID STARTEDANGELS BELIEVE IN SANTAWhen we welcomed Tashia into our home and hearts, we knew our time with Tashia was limited due to the AIDS she had contracted from nine years of sexual abuse, and each day our hopes and hearts rose that she would live to see a glorious Christmas Holiday in our home. Then afrter onnly 6 safe months with us the Intensive Care doctor said her dibilitated little body did not have the strength to make the six days to Christmas …
