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. We provide emergency safe shelter and transitional housing for victims of domestic violence. We also help families who are in crisis meet basic needs for items such as food and clothing. WINGS has evolved over time, growing so that we are 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 so that we can address the specific needs of the individuals and families we serve. Many different kinds of support are needed to help them move away from violence and towards safety and self-sufficiency. 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.
Making the courageous decision to leave an abusive relationship is the first step in a difficult journey. Our goal as an agency is to provide all of the tools and supports needed to ensure that families have what they need to move towards safety, independence and self-sufficiency. Thanks to WINGS, there is a way out. No one is alone.
