Advocate Program

Working with community professionals from over a dozen local agencies, Wings acts as advocates to some of the most vulnerable, chronically homeless individuals in our community.

Our volunteers provide rides to medical and court appointments, find furniture and provide trucks and strong backs for new move-ins and help people fill out the confusing paperwork needed to get housing assistance.

Population(s) Served

We provide newly housed individuals and families with a new, refurbished bed sets and a laundry basket filled with new, essential personal care and household supplies to get them started enjoying their newfound sense of belonging.

Population(s) Served

To meet one of the most pivotal needs of people trying to escape homelessness, Wings assists individuals in obtaining vital identification documents. Without a certified birth certificate or other identification, the homeless cannot access emergency services, shelters or housing for which they qualify.
