About Little Birthday Angles
Little Birthday Angels is a 501c3 registered non-profit community outreach organization serving the Treasure Coast of Florida. We provide birthday celebrations and gifts for homeless children and teens living in our 4 local shelters; Hibiscus Children's Center, SafeSpace, Samaritan Center, and Hope for Families. Recently we have added 2 school districts, Indian River County, and St. Lucie County school districts, providing birthday gifts and essential items to registered homeless children in our local schools. Our mission is to “Celebrate Homeless Children One Birthday at a Time.”
In August 2014, Brian and Angel Pietsch, and their two sons, Hunter and Seth, felt a calling to begin this organization after making a donation to a shelter in Indian River County. It was brought to their attention that there were not enough funds to celebrate monthly birthdays. With many helping hands and generous hearts, Little Birthday Angels was given its wings.
For four years, LBA has joyfully provided birthday gifts and celebrations for “our” homeless children living on the Treasure Coast. Monthly, we serve over 100 children at our parties held in homeless shelters. Additionally, we have included a birthday program in Indian River and St Lucie County Schools; now serving over 200 individual birthdays a year.
As we continue to have enough volunteers and provisions, we will continue to add more shelters and other opportunities to reach the homeless children that are not fortunate enough to be in a shelter. To date, we are proud to say that we have celebrated 434 birthday children!
