I have been a friend of Wingspan Life Resources since I moved to Minnesota over 20 years ago. In all fairness, part of my involvement stems from the fact that I am married to Wingspan's Executive Director. But that fact is only a part of the story. For many years I have been a board member of another nonprofit, but don't feel compelled to give that organization a 5 Star review. So what is it about Wingspan that compels me to write? Stated as briefly as possible, it is the care and love given to the residents/participants in Wingspans programs that moves me. Unlike some nonprofits, Wingspan exist to serve. Period. The Wingspan professionals, many of whom I have known since we were all much younger, are the most devoted group of caregivers I have ever had the good fortune to know. Persons with developmental disabilities are too often treated callously by the world around them, and in this era of cuts to social services, I fear things will get worse before they get better. Thank God for the dedicated professionals at Wingspan Life Resources. Wingspan is truly a GREAT nonprofit.

I have been blessed in my life to be around such an outstanding organization. As a child I was amazed by the works the company did to help people grow and reach dreams. As an adult I am honored to say that I am a staff for a company that is dedicated to helping individuals reach their goals and dreams! The care and dedication I have witnessed while working here is amazing!

I have worked for Wingspan Life Resources for 10 yrs now. It is the best company I have ever had the opportunity to work for. The employees ensure the best quality of care for all the residents. Wingspan shows an incredible amount of love and respect for their staff and residents. The residents are happy and all of their needs and wants are met in a timely fashion. This is the 2nd year in a row that Wingspan won a reward for being one of the top 100 employers and it's all because of our wonderful, caring staff and I'm very proud of them!

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

I personally experienced the results of Wingspan Life Resources when a resident passed away in 2008. Wingspan did everything in there power to make sure that her last wishes were fulfilled to the fullest. Which of course made her family very happy.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would clone the staff that we already have.
