Wings springs from the passion of caring people and the deep concern we have to help families of prisoners who have been largely shunned or ignored by our society. In our society where children are all at risk in one way or another, children whose parent(s) are in prison, face even more challenges.
The guardians and caregivers of the inmate’s children have time to meet with congregational, community leaders and volunteers. Contacts are made that can enable future support for the families and invitations are extended to the families to attend congregations in their neighborhoods. Inmate’s families are welcomed and encouraged to find a congregational home.
We help build relationships that transform the lives of families, volunteers and communities. We connect spouses, caregivers & children of prisoners with nurturing & supporting relationships. Wings conducts joyous celebrations of unconditional love that break down barriers.

What People Say About Wings
Volunteering with Wings For LIFE was an awesome experience. They are dedicated to the community and providing opportunities to those who may not have them anywhere else. Overall, they are a great organization!
Wings for LIFE is a great non-profit to work with. Their work towards access to families for incarcerated individuals is such a great initiative that isn’t being addressed or focused on by other organizations. Ann is also a great leader that allows WFL to flourish the way it has.
This is the most caring, loving, compassionate and meaningful group with a great record of dependability. I give them my utmost respect and support for the amazing work they have done and continue to do.
I haven’t come across an organization quite like this one. Wings volunteers serve inmates, returning citizens, families and the community by offering education, training in life skills and love to those who want it.
Wings For LIFE was very welcoming, and it was an honor to get to meet such amazing people from all backgrounds. The staff all work hard to make Wings atmosphere as positive as it is. Thank you for the opportunity to intern here!
WFLI is one of the most incredible nonprofits I have ever had the pleasure of volunteering for! The work they do is so vital and important, and truly makes a difference in people’s lives. I am forever changed by my experience working side by side with this organization. Thank you for the opportunity!
