The Mayor of Chicago and many other special guests –
Our newest facility — WINGS Metro — opened on Valentine’s Day 2016.
The new shelter provides 40 adults and children with a safe place to escape the devastating effects of domestic violence each and every night.
The City of Chicago, with support from Mayor Rahm Emanuel, provided a grant and donated the land and innumerous donors worked tirelessly to bring the project to life. The WINGS metro site converted a former Police District facility and constructed a new annex to the building.
WINGS Metro features 40 shelter beds, a suite-style living environment, meeting rooms, laundry facilities, private garden and play space, a multi-purpose room, computer lab and lounge. WINGS Metro provides victims who are seeking refuge with a pathway to freedom and self-sufficiency and everything they need to get their lives on track.
With the new shelter up and running, WINGS has increased the number of shelter beds in the City of Chicago by 36%.
