Is Angel House a "not for profit" with 501c(3) status?
Angel House Rescue Orphanage is an extension of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation Rescue International. At the end of each calendar year, a detailed giving receipt is furnished to each donor for tax purposes.
How much of the money raised goes to rescuing children and how much goes to overhead?
At Angel House, we know that the children need and deserve as much help as we can give them. Because of this, we ensure that 100% of the money raised for projects is directed toward the project. The new home construction prices go toward the following:
- Land acquisition
- Materials and all labor
- Home construction
Additional funds can be raised to provide a:
- Fresh water well
- School supplies
- Mosquito nets
- Playground equipment
To ensure the 100% model, we enlist the help of a group of individuals and businesses called "Guardian Angels" who provide recurring monthly donations, at any amount. These donations help to cover things like salaries, general overhead, and any excess financial needs we may run into. These donors fuel our continued vision of Angel House! If you would like to become a Guardian Angel, please visit our "Donate" page and follow the prompts to give!
How do you choose the House Parents?
The Angel House International staff chooses the house parents based on the following criteria:
- Their credibility as an Indian citizen (background check)
- Their experience (What they done to show they are capable to perform the job)
- Their interviews (This process is long and tedious and consists of our Angel House International staff getting to know the couple for months, including several extensive interviews and trusted referrals)
- Accountability (Financial background check)
Once the House Parents clear all requirements made by Angel House, they are trained by our Staff in the areas of Leadership, Safety, and Parenting. Additionally, regular unannounced visits are made to each homes to ensure they are operated according to Angel House standards.
