The 2023 beneficiary is WINGS SPECIAL NEEDS COMMUNITY
In 2004, several families came together with the question, “What will happen to my adult child with disabilities when I am no longer here to take care of them?”. To answer this question, Wings Special Needs Community was born. Wings enhances the lives of adults with developmental disabilities through social, vocational, and soon-to-be residential programming. The Day Program provides services to over 70 Members, 5 days a week who have volunteered over 6,000 hours in the community in the last year. Their Member’s volunteerism serves over 51 non-profits in our community. Wings is a place where these adults can grow their community, have a sense of belonging and serve their community.
