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.
Terrific service to clients!! They are continually trying to provide extraordinary care for residents.
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!
I have been a board member, a volunteer and a donor.Wingspan is client centered in everything it provides, the people who serve and the mission it proclaims. Clients feel special and that is because they are at Wingspan. Wingspan has a great reputation and it is well earned. They are always there as much as is humanly possible and they do it in creative ways not imagined by others, the glee club being just one example of extraordinary expression.
This organization is in tune with its clients and donors and knows its mission. it is truly a voice for those who have difficulty representing themselves.
Wingspan Life Resources is an amazing organization with wonderful staff that is 100% dedicated to the lives of its clients. They understand so many of the individual needs of each one and they know the greater issues facing individuals who require such care including health, finances, social interaction, well being and more. I have been very impressed by the personal contact everyone receives from staff, volunteers and the executive staff. It is truly a nurturing community and if one had a loved one facing these challenges, they could only hope there would be a Wingspan Life Resources there for them.
Great, Great company. Our mottos seem to be Never Give Up and Go the Extra Mile. High standards and a supportive work atmosphere. Always willing to change to better support the people we are in business for. I'm proud to be on staff.
As the sibling of a developmentally disabled brother, I have great passion for Wingspan's mission and tremendous gratitude and respect for staff who give 110% every day. Wingspan Life Resources goes above and beyond to transform lives by providing nurturing care and enrichment opportunities that allow developmentally disabled adults to not merely survive--but to THRIVE.
