What We Do
(Note: We have had to close the housing and work program for men temporarily and hope to offer these service next year.)

WING-men work with our Crew Leader, Walt Davenport, off-site four days a week and Shawn Bergman, our Weekend Leader, three days a week. This allows the program to generate almost half of the money it needs to keep operating. The work is varied and almost all outdoors. We think it is vital to our WING-men's success that they learn to get up every morning, pack a lunch, work hard every day and do it all again the next day.

We have done all types of landscape and yard clean up, shoreline reconstruction, habitat restoration, trail maintenance, deconstruction projects, LEED recycling, painting - you name it, we have done it this year.  We are very grateful for the support from a number of companies who have hired WINGS through long term contracts. Those companies include: Port of Hood River, Hood River County LibraryWarm Springs Tribe, SDS Lumber, Underwood Conservation District, and Cascade Commons Shopping Center.

The WINGS-Crew is also available for hire for half and full days for any type of project. We have torn out cement patios, laid tile, cleaned gutters, raked yards, and blown and shoveled show - yes, we have our own new snowblower! If you have a project, please give us a call! Last year WINGS added a Firewood business! We receive wood donations, cut them into rounds, split them and then sell the wood by the cord in the area. We offer cords of season fir and have some oak and maple for sale as well. Contact Allyson at 541-380-3820 or by email at allyson@getwings.net for more information!.
