About The Angelus
The Angelus is “A place to live, to love, to learn.” It is a home for severely handicapped persons who are not able to care for themselves. All residents and students are confined to wheelchairs. Most are non-verbal, some are blind, some are deaf, some are mentally retarded, some have normal intelligence, but all understand kindness and love. The Angelus was founded in St. Petersburg, Fla. in 1979. Today, thanks to overwhelming community support, The Angelus is located on 17 acres of beautiful wooded land in Pasco County. There are five group homes, a day program, a wood shop, a pool, miniature horses, a multi-sensory room, Charlie’s Lodge (named after musician Charlie Daniels) and a covered pavilion to be used for various activities.
