Wingspan's top priority is their residents. Their resources are committed to the comfort and safety of the people they care for - for life. Their staff is well trained with very little turnover. This is important to the residents in their homes. Communication is outstanding which is so important to family members.
Our daughter is in one of Wingspan's homes. She has fit in with the other ladies and she is happy and so are we.

I am a long-time donor because I truly value the way Wingspan offers people with developmental disabilities love, support and many opportunities to be part of our community. The staff is incredible - compassionate, caring and highly professional. And the management makes the best use of its resources year after year.

My daughter is a client served by Wingspan. Wingspan is very caring and she considers her
housemates and staff her second family. They do everything possible to insure each individual
enjoys the highest quality of life possible and that each reaches their potential. My daughter
has
grown and improved in unimaginable ways under Wingspan's loving encouragement. Their long-term
staff are dedicated to their careers and excel in them. We owe Wingspan a huge debt of gratitude.

My sister has lived in one of the 24 homes that Wingspan runs in Minneapolis since 2002. I cannot say enough great things about how they care for my sister. She is so happy in her home, and the staff is absolutely the best. They are all so dedicated and caring. Wingspan is a wonderful non profit, dedicated to helping everyone they serve live their lives to the fullest. I have also been a board member and have seen the dedication that runs through the whole company! Kudos to Wingspan for being such a well run, caring organization!

I am the sister of one of the residents of a Wingspan home. Liz has been in her home since 2002. I moved her to Minneapolis so that she could be close to me, since I am her guardian. I can't tell you how many homes I looked at, not finding anything I was willing to have Liz move into. After months of looking, the social worker called and said she had another home for me to look at. I wasn't too hopeful, but I didn't want to leave any stone unturned. From the moment I walked into this home (run by Wingspan), I felt a sense of calm and happines... the home was clean and neat, and all of the ladies seemed very content, but the best part was the staff...they were all so kind and loving toward the ladies, and it truly felt like a home, with people who loved and cared for the people they served. I knew right then that I had found the perfect home for Liz! She came to visit and stayed for dinner...they made her favorite meal, lasagne, and that sealed the deal...she loved it! I am so happy to have found Wingpsan for Liz. I see her every week, and she spends all of the holidays with us. There are also many wonderful activities provided by Wingspan that Liz loves to take part in...the picnic in the summer, karaoke parties, art activities, summer camp, the Made in the Shade walk in the fall....but her FAVORITE is the Magnolia Ball in the spring. She and all of the Wingspan residents get dressed up, and are treated to a wonderful dance with food and pop, and the staff serving as DJ... what could be better? Liz loves to dance, so she dances the night away with a big smile on her face!! It is so great to have Liz so close! She always loves it when I pick her up to go out with me, but the BEST part for me is to see how happy she is to return to her home! Wingspan is the outstanding company it is because of the wonderful people who work there and dedicate their lives to helping all of the people they serve live their lives to the fullest. All of these caring people are a special blessing in Liz's life, and in turn in mine. I will always be thankful for Wingspan and the wonderful care the give to my sister, Liz!

Wingspan Life Resources operates 24 residential facilities that care for developmentally disabled adults. The Wingspan staff takes "caring" well beyond providing food, shelter and medical assistance. Wingspan's commitment is to empower the abilities and to nurture the spirits of its residents so that they may recognize their God-given abilities and develop their maximum human potential. Once admitted to a Wingspan home, residents can be assured of loving and supportive care up to and including end of live support if needed. I am proud to be associated with this organization for the good it accomplished day in and day out.

This organization goes above and beyond the call of duty routinely to provide the people in its care with exceptional care as well as encouragement to use their skills and capabilities to their fullest. One of my favorite stories is the extra effort staff members made to assure that one of the residents could walk his daughter down the aisle to be married. This demanded special medical and physical therapy efforts and an out of state trip. Thanks to all the advance planning and special efforts, the trip and the day came off without a hitch.

Wingspan Life Resources operates 24 group homes in the Minneapolis-St. Pau metro area. The organization's mission is to serve people who are challenged by age, ability or health to realize their own unique gifts, talents and dreams. Wingspan fulfill this mission by providing its residents withn individualized support services that promote personal choice, independence, dignity and fellowship with the community. Formerly known as St. Anns, Wingspan marks its 40th year of service this year. The Winspan staff demonstrates its commitment to residents everyday in so many ways. In fact, employees recently rated the organization as one of the Top 100 Places To Work (in the Twin Cities area) in an annual poll conducted by the Star-Tribune newspaper. Staff gave management high ratings for understanding what's going on in the organization and for supporting staff members in their jobs. I'm proud to be associated with Wingspan by serving as the Board Secretary for the past 1-1/2 years.
