Do you like kids? The WINGS program is looking for a few responsible and sensitive individulas who would like to provide a fun time to some of our kids by providing childcare on some Tuesday or Wednesday evenings (usually 6:30 pm to 8pm) in Mt. Prospect.

Childcare is needed so that their mother's who are in our program are able to take advantage of the educational programs that we offer to them on important life skill topics like Money Mangment, Parenting Skills, basics of home managment.

Mission Statement

The mission of WINGS is to provide a continuum of integrated services in an effort to end homelessness and domestic violence one family at a time.

Description

WINGS Program, Inc. was founded in 1985 and has grown to include 5 transitional homes and over 20 apartments scattered throughout Park Ridge, Des Plaines, Mount Prospect, Arlington Heights, Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg and Barrington. In addition to shelter, food and clothing, WINGS programs include counseling, life skills, vocational training, and educational programs for women and therapeutic programs for children and adolescents. Our program equips women with the support, training and resources to help them become self-sufficient and financially independent, and provides children with a restored sense of security and stability. A woman and her children can stay in our transitional program for up to 2 years. The need for our transitional housing program is great. There are usually at least between 5 and 10 families on our waiting list. WINGS has also responded to an unmet need in the north and northwest suburban area, by building and operating a 45 bed domestic violence Safe House. Previously, there had been no accessible shelters in which a woman and her children, who are fleeing a desperate situation, can go. Families who enter the Safe Hous will be provided short-term shelter, legal counseling, crisis counseling and other services to help them stabilize their situation.
