Who We Are

Project Angel Hugs is a Christ-centered organization dedicated to easing the pain of childhood cancer.
Our mission is to cheer children battling for their lives. We pray for these families along with sending them surprises in the mail. We utilize healthy, local youth in much of our work. Teaching them how to volunteer in a fun and interactive way. Project Angel Hugs was founded in 1999 while Vanessa Jensema was undergoing Chemotherapy. It continues on in loving memory of Vanessa who passed away after her courageous battle with leukemia. Her spirit of giving and living life fully, along with her strong faith and love of Jesus enriches Project Angel Hugs yet today. We hold service activities for school groups, 4-H Groups, church groups, scout troops and individuals for community service projects. These groups range from grade school age to adults. Project Angel Hugs ministers to 370+ children across the US.

What We Do

An organization dedicated to nurturing a passion for Christ-centered service in the hearts of our youth while ministering to the emotional needs of children touched by cancer and their families. We send holiday and birthday boxes along with monthly happy mail to the children in our program. Our program is free to participating families.
PAH relies on the generosity of local individuals and businesses to help us obtain the items and monetary support needed to achieve our goal of lifting the children and their families up and carrying them through many dark hours of treatment.
