Generally a donor may deduct an in-kind (or, non-cash) donation as a charitable contribution. We will provide a written acknowledgement to substantiate the gift, although our acknowledgement cannot assign a dollar value to the donation.
The value of a donation must be determined by the donor; IRS rules require that the receiving nonprofit is not permitted to provide a valuation of the property it receives. Since it is not cash, it can be more difficult to determine the value of a donation. The IRS requires that the donation be priced at its “fair market value.” Tangible goods are fairly easy to value. Some others may require a professional assessment. For example, if someone were to donate a painting, a professional assessment by a third party may be required.
No. The Angelus is non-denominational, but we will provide transportation to the different churches in the area. Obviously, providing transportation to several different churches is logistically impossible, but if a resident expresses a desire to go to a church, we do our best to assist them.
Yes, the homes are co-ed, but the bedrooms are all same sex.
ABSOLUTELY!! We encourage this. Even though the staff and other residents become their “Angelus family,” we never assume we can take the place of personal family. We all enjoy seeing our family, people that are special to just us.
Please keep in mind that bedrooms are shared and their roommate may want to be in their space. Staff will not ask another resident to leave their space so your family members can “hangout” in the bedroom. If privacy is required, management can make arrangements for a room or private area.
In addition to visiting, we encourage family members to attend events, holiday dinners, taking a family member to the beach, a movie, etc.
The Angelus will accept the Florida Medicaid Waiver or private pay, which could include a trust fund or insurance.
If you need to learn more about the Florida Medicaid Waiver, go to the Agency for Persons With Disability website at http://apdcares.org.
Yes and no. Decorations and personal items are suggested and recommended, but keep in mind most of the bedrooms are shared so we have to be respectful to the roommate also.
But at times we do have private room availability and at that point yes making a bedroom someone personal space can happen.
No. The Angelus is not a medical facility. The people we serve are not medically needy. All of our staff are trained in accordance with APD regulations regarding, First Aid, Medication Administration, CPR. In addition our managers attend the doctor appointments or are in constant contact with the doctors when necessary.
