Reviews for Wings Ministry
2 people found this review helpful
I have known Ann and supported Wings for over a decade now and I say without reservation that in my 25 years of correctional experience this is one of the most positively impactful ministries available to incarcerated persons and their families. I appreciate the simplicity, sincerity and consistency of the Wings message and the professionalism of the kinds of volunteers attracted to this ministry. I continue to promote the expansion of Wings in Ohio.
Wings Ministry provides an opportunity for children to interact with an incarcerated family member in a fun and far more natural setting than the usual prison visit. Kids remember the experience months and years later as a positive experience.
This is an awesome organization helping our nation's prisoners cope with their incarceration. Do you know we have 5% of the world's population and 25% of all the prisoners. Most prisons are overcrowded with terrible health conditions. For example, Alabama is at 200% capacity. This organization provides inmates with time with their loved ones in the form of parties. They call them parties and they are simple get togethers with food but to the inmates who rarely see fresh food, it is a party. This is an awesome organization doing what it can for those who may have made a mistake in life but don't we all?
I haven't come across an organization quite like this one. Wings volunteers serve inmates, returning citizens, families and the community by offering education, training in life skills and love to those who want it
