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.

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!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The wonderful staff, board members, and other volunteers

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, giving, caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide wonderful care to so many people in need.

Ways to make it better...

I can't imagine a way it could be better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money issues with cutbacks.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They're great!
