WELCOME TO WINGS
The Wings Program
Wings was created to enhance the lives of adults with developmental disabilities by providing job training and post-high school educational opportunities. We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for each participant and helping them reach his/her full potential by providing opportunities to participate in experiences that help them grow physically, spiritually, cognitively, socially, and emotionally.
The Wings Social Club was created to provide an outlet for socialization in a safe and supportive environment that fosters the development of friendships and connects people in a way that is real and lasting. Social Club participants enjoy a variety of events both at the Wings campus as well as in the community.
As a way to expand our spheres of outreach and impact more people with our programs, we have formed a group of local community leaders and noteworthy individuals to promote and champion the cause of Wings. A Wings Champion is an advocate, an ambassador, and an ardent supporter of the mission and goals of Wings. We are truly thankful for the support and involvement of each Champion.

2019 FLOURISH OKC
Hobby Lobby is a proud sponsor of Flourish OKC, formerly known as the OKC Passion Awards. This year marked the second annual celebration held in Oklahoma City to identify and support effective organizations, who seek to advance the flourishing of the city in body, mind and spirit. The awards celebration took place with 1,000 people in attendance at The Criterion on March 25. Flourish focuses its energy, attention and voice to highlight one major issue in the city. The 2019 focus was education. WINGS is honored to have been selected as one of just ten organizations to have been awarded a grant for the work we do with our members.
