Broussard Selected Top Volunteer (January 15, 2005)

Out of hundreds of volunteers that help out with everything from special events to office work to ground transportation, this year's unanimous pick for Angel Flight's 2004 Volunteer of the Year is Kathy Broussard. Although Kathy IS a pilot—pictured above with her aircraft Sweetie Pie—she is being recognized as founder of the Houston Ground Angels.

The Houston Ground Angels grew out of Kathy's concern that many patients flown into Houston for treatment did not have anyone to meet them, and couldn't afford the $100 round-trip taxi ride to the hospital. Valentine's Day of 2001 marked the first Ground Angel mission. These volunteer drivers provide round-trip transport from Angel Flights to a patient's hospital or hotel, and agree to be on call 24/7. Kathy serves as lead coordinator, matching up her 260 volunteers with incoming patients. Last year, the Houston Ground Angels helped over 1,000 people. Kathy is particulary proud that every single request for transportation was filled.
