 Why Volunteer with Houston Ground Angels?

Houston Ground Angels is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization established in 2000. Its mission is to provide complimentary ground transportation between area airports and the Medical Center for patients traveling to Houston for medical treatment.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people from across the country come to Houston’s highly respected and acclaimed medical facilities seeking life-saving treatments, for themselves, their child, spouse, or a parent. Many of these patients come alone, or a parent arrives with their young child, and they do not know the city, nor anyone who lives here. It can be frightening to arrive in a strange city, alone, especially when you have cancer or another life-threatening disease or illness.

Plus, when you combine mounting medical bills, interrupted employment, and the expense of airfare, meals, and local transportation, in Houston, it can become overwhelming.  Many patients simply decide to stay in their small towns where treatments are not offered, and begin saying goodbye to loved ones, even though they could possibly find healing if they did decide to come here. Many times, they simply cannot afford to come to Houston.

It is estimated that in fighting their illness a patient will spend $11,000 in meals, hotels and local transportation. Therefore, Houston Ground Angels’ volunteers assist these patients in local transportation, by picking them up at public and private airports around the city and drive them to the medical center. When they are ready to go home, a Houston Ground Angel will pick them up at the medical center and take them back to the airport.

Patients continue to exclaim how nice it is to have a friendly face when they arrive in Houston, and the relief they feel in not having to find their way in a rental car or public transportation. These patients sincerely appreciate the help, but mainly it is knowing they are not alone when they arrive. Our volunteers continue to say how rewarding it is knowing they have helped make someone’s day a little easier.
