Our History

Over 30 Years & Counting

In 1986, a concerned parent discovered the overwhelming requirements of special needs children at T.H. Rogers School in Houston, TX and began Be An Angel to help.

Now over 30 years later, BAA serves thousand of special needs children throughout Texas, primarily in the Greater Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas areas, providing specialized programs, services and equipment.

Please take a moment to review some of our greatest milestones from recent years.
