Pam Gaber
CEO & Founder
Gabriel's Angels

   

In 2000, Pam Gaber founded Gabrielís Angels, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. She recognized the pressing and documented need in the community to enhance the lives of neglected and abused children through the application of pet therapy. The organization was named after Pamís young Weimaraner, Gabriel, who began his career by visiting the children residing at the Crisis Nursery in Phoenix. During these visits Gabriel offered unconditional, non-judgmental love, teaching the children empathy, compassion and respect. By watching Gabriel help the children to trust again, Pam understood that something special was happening and felt compelled to reach more children. The triumph of Gabrielís Angels is manifested by Pamís leadership position as CEO and her daily involvement in the development, growth and vision of the organization. Presently there are 167 Pet Therapy Teams serving over 117 agencies and reaching 13,500 children annually. The organization has also expanded into Southern Arizona and Prescott.

Her achievements include winning the 2008 Hon Kachina Volunteer Award, being recognized by Arizona Foothills Magazine as one of the Women Who Move The Valley, and being named a 2010 Women in Business by the Phoenix Business Journal and a 2011 and 2012 Phoenix Chamber Athena finalist. In 2011 she was chosen the YWCA Woman of Excellence in the nonprofit sector and voted Most Influential Nonprofit Executive by Arizona Foothills magazine. In November of 2011 Gabrielís Angels was selected as the Scottsdale Chamberís Sterling Award Winner for Nonprofit. In 2012 Gabrielís Angels was chosen the Marketer of the Year Award for Nonprofits sponsored by the Phoenix Business Journal.
