Wingspan continues to go above and beyond to make life for their clients meaningful and enjoyable. Our daughter has been a resident of one of their home for 10 plus years and we are very impressed with the care and compassion they show on a daily basis. We will continue to support Wingspan to our full ability now and in the future.

Our daughter is and has been a resident of one of Wingspan's home for the past 10 plus years. The staff is a very well trained, devoted and caring group of people. The house coordinator is an extremely capable individual and is always coming up with new and interesting things for the residents to enjoy. We are very pleased with the entire Wingspan organization.

My daughter is a resident of one of their group homes.
I am so happy and content that she will be able to live her life to the end with the most caring and competent people I have ever known.
As a former board member I know first hand the care and work that has taken place to make Wingspan the most prestigious group homes in the twin cities.
My friend Senator Ann Rest has visited with our home and she is very satisfied with the care and the people who work there whom are like extended family to ours.

My daughter Kathy has been at Wingspan for over 15 years. I have nothing but praise for the people who care for the consumers at Wingspan. The people at the headquarters from the CEO on down have been above reproach and extremely caring. After talking with and knowing many Hennepin County social workers I know that they agree that Wingspan is the superior organization of group homes in the greater twin cities area. It is a pleasure to know and work with these employees and the caregivers who are wonderful.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Every aspect of it's work, from the CEO to the many caregivers. It is a testimonial to caring for others to see the work that they do.

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

They are all friends with each other and are there for weddings, funerals and all holidays and celebrations. The financial responsibility is taken care of beyond reproach.

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

They were born to care for people with needs. I have never seen any bad behavior from any caregiver, only love and affection.

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

Care for all the special people in Minnesota with handicaps.
