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.
