The mission of WINGS Program, Inc. is to provide housing, integrated services, education and advocacy to end domestic violence.

Vision: WINGS Program, Inc. will help create a society in which every domestic violence survivor has a voice and the resources to break the cycle of domestic violence.

WINGS provides safe, secure living environments, through transitional and permanent housing and emergency shelter, in residential neighborhoods that allow women to go to school, work, and achieve financial and emotional independence. Our residents are women and children who are victims of domestic violence and need temporary safe shelter or who become homeless due to other extreme hardships. Comprehensive support services include life skills development, safety counseling, budget planning, children and family services, support groups, crisis management, volunteer mentoring, access to vocational counseling and follow-up services. In addition, we provide outreach counseling to women and men.
