WINGSPAN LIFE RESOURCES
July 18, 2012

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.
