In 2015 I spent some months in Montana where I set up Angel Hands and really enjoyed all the wonderful people I was able to assist while there.
However, the path I was on led me home to Ketchikan, Alaska where I took a much needed sabbatical for the jubilee year. Now that time of rest has come to an end and I have decided to start Angel Hands in Ketchikan after learning of the need in my own home town.
I am working toward fully launching Angel Hands in Ketchikan in 2017 so we can step in and meet needs in our local community and get Angel Hands full established here before I spread my wings and travel again.
If Alaska is on your bucket list and you would like to be an angel with us, short or long term, please contact me.
With this new year, we decided to start a new blog which will include tips and alternative health care, treatments, nutrition and more to aid you in your preventative health care as well as to help address any ongoing health issues.
For questions on how to address or prevent health issues, email us and we will answer here on the blog (leaving out your personal information) so others struggling with the same issues can learn as well.
Contact us for information on integrative/alternative health care for the prevention and treatment of illness, disease, and other health issues, and we will post our answers here. firstname.lastname@example.org
