What is WINGS?

Give Them Wings, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation doing business as WINGS. WINGS is a two-phase program that provides housing, work, education and wrap-around services for young men who are currently homeless and in need of support. We provides these services to young men between the ages of 18 and 23, who are from, or have ties to, the Columbia Gorge area. 

WINGS opened its doors on December 1, 2008, and has changed the lives of over 60 young men. In Phase One, four young men at a time live and work together on our farm in Hood River. 

As this is a self-paced program, we expect that Phase 1 will last between six and nine months. As the young men show that they have learned the skills to be employable and sustainable, they graduate to Phase Two, where they have their own job and place to live. Through a housing grant with HUD, we are able to offer seven to ten graduates a place to live. At the time of graduation from the program, we anticipate that the young men will be ready to live and work independently – but they will always be WING-men and a part of the WINGS family.
