The Story

Our Story

WINGS a non-profit organization whose calling is to enhance the lives of adults with special needs.  We currently provide prevocational, educational, and recreational services to our members all guided by the principles of the bible. We are located at the northeast corner of Eastern and Memorial in Edmond, Oklahoma and serve the entire Oklahoma City and surrounding metropolitan area. WINGS’ operating philosophy is based on the free enterprise system and does not accept any direct government funding. Instead it relies on its business enterprises, tuition, and generous donations from supporters to sustain its operations.  Our Vision is to provide a community in Oklahoma where individuals can:

  • Reach the full potential of all God created them to be
  • Live healthy, satisfying and enjoyable lives
  • Grow socially, emotionally, and spiritually
  • Feel safe and independent
  • Develop meaningful productive job skills
  • Hold real jobs in the community’s own business enterprises
  • Experience the pride of contributing to own support
  • Provide educational opportunities for members to continue developing their skills and talents

One of our successful business enterprises has been WINGS' annual pumpkin patch hosted on our beautiful nine acre grounds. This activity helps provide prevocational opportunities for WINGS members and help sustain its operations through the sale of fall plants and a huge variety of pumpkins.   WINGS has the desire to expand this enterprise to a year round opportunity by building “WINGS Outdoors.” This feature would expand the prevocational opportunities for our members and further WINGS’ “community within community” approach by providing year round selections of seasonal outdoor items to the public such as spring plants, fall pumpkins, Christmas trees, and typical outdoor nursery items.

Please help us make a difference in the lives of special needs adults and give them opportunity to be independent and successful community members.

Donations to WINGS are 100% tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Our IRS issued EIN# is 20-1141382
