Angels Unaware


Angels Unaware, Inc. maintains a waiting list that is unnumbered. This means, even though a vacancy has been created, the waiting list is considered as a whole and not numerically in order. Angels Unaware, Inc. strives to place residents in our homes that are compatible with the existing population. We strive to make all placements permanent.

Listed below are the steps used to fill a vacancy within Angels Unaware, Inc. While the steps are listed in a numerical order, it is not necessary that they occur in this order. Additionally, other steps may be added when deemed necessary by the professional staff of the agency.

Parents, guardians, and consumers are encouraged to ask questions concerning the placement process. The Executive Director is the contact person for the Placement Team.


  1. A vacancy is created and then advertised by the Corporation and through the Agency for People with Disabilities (A.P.D.), Developmental Services or other means and persons as deemed necessary.
