WINGS saves women and children who are escaping domestic abuse by delivering secure long-term housing and wrap-around support services to help families 24/7. While these fully furnished apartments provide needed shelter for survivors, WINGS does much more than provide a roof over their heads.
WINGS creates a safe and welcoming home for women and children. Our trauma informed approach, intensive counseling, onsite childcare, life skills training, as well as child and youth programs – encourage healing for the whole family. We give women time to process and the tools they need to recover from the horrific trauma they have experienced. Our full-circle healing helps women and children become more stable, access new skills and set a healthy course for their lives
Millwoods Community Church has decided to focus most of our congregational ministries on supporting WINGS and their vital work for our neighbors. Specific opportunities can be found in our bulletins and newsletters. We hope you can join us!
