Project Angel Heart was founded in 1991 to address major challenges facing Coloradans living with a life-threatening illness—getting the nutrition they need to get stronger and remain independent in their homes. Many are too sick to get to the grocery store, have to choose whether to buy food or medication, or are too weak to make themselves or their dependents a meal. In 2017, Project Angel Heart plans to deliver 335,000 medically-modified meals to at least 2,900 Coloradans living with life-threatening illness in the Denver and Colorado Springs communities.
