Established in 1985, WINGS provides a pathway to independence for people whose lives have been disrupted by domestic violence. WINGS got its start as a non-profit housing agency. It provides emergency safe shelter and transitional housing for victims of domestic violence. It also helps families who are in crisis meet basic needs for items such as food and clothing. WINGS has evolved over time, growing so that it is able to help a greater number of people.
Escaping the cycle of violence, however, requires more than just a safe place to live. WINGS has continued to expand in order to address the specific needs of the individuals and families its serves. Today, WINGS is able to connect clients with a wide range of services such as counseling, legal assistance, mentoring, life skills support and career services.
Its goal as an agency is to provide all of the tools and supports needed to ensure that families have what they need to move toward safety, independence and self-sufficiency.
