The tragedy at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007, had international repercussions, but took its greatest toll on the families and communities who loved the victims and continue to support the survivors. Unfortunately, the issues that led to this tragedy: mental health, bullying, social anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation are also found within our communities. Angel Fund is focusing on these critical issues with which many of our young people grapple on a daily basis, including drug and alcohol addiction, and is seeking to find answers and solutions.
To create a safe environment for young people to feel respected, self-confident as well as be tolerant towards others. We believe that young people have the power to touch the lives of others and make a difference.
A community that takes action against bullying, addiction, depression and suicide through education, programs and advocacy.
