Wingspan Life Resources helps our most vulnerable citizens to be fully engaged in their community and to lead full, happy lives. Services include: 1) individualized daily living supports for adults with developmental disabilities in twenty-four homes in the Twin Cities, 2) individualized services and supports to people with developmental disabilities who choose to live in their family home, 3) employment and alternative services for adults with disabilities seeking retirement activity, volunteerism, and/or paid employment, and 4) culturally specific day services for adults within the Hmong community who are vulnerable due to age, disability and/or isolation.
All people served are encouraged to be independent and are given opportunities to participate in their community as they choose. Because no one's life stays the same, services are adapted to each person's changing needs, creating lasting relationships and a lifelong, stable environment.
