The cost of caring for one of our W.I.N.G.S. moms and her baby is $60.00 per day. This allows us to provide housing, food, clothing, personal care items, diapers, childcare, education, counselling, transportation, and more. At W.I.N.G.S. Maternity Home we are very grateful for our monthly supporting partners.
Our 'FEATHERS' are those partners who give monthly towards our daily operating costs. You can become a "FEATHER' donor starting at $10 per month.
Our 'KEYS' are those partners who give monthly towards education, growth 
& development. You can become a "KEY' donor starting at $100 per month.
If you are already a monthly donor or wish to become one, we'd like to invite you to our VIP 'Share the Love' Event at W.I.N.G.S. Maternity Home on February 26th.

MOM OF THE MONTH!
 
"Several months ago I found myself pregnant, living in a youth shelter with little support." Hi, My name is Nia and I now live at W.I.N.G.S. Maternity Home.
 
I'm sooo thankful for all the help that I have been receiving here at W.I.N.G.S.
Not only do I live in a safe and loving environment, but one that offers me help me with education and life skill training as I move towards my desired career as a nutritionist. Thanks to the many volunteer instructors that give of their time at W.I.N.G.S. 
One of the best things that has happen to me since I've been at W.I.N.G.S. took place about 15 weeks ago. That was the day I was introduced to a very special young man who has captured my heart. My son, Nathaniel Zaird Spencer was born Nov. 3rd, 2016.
Nathaniel is a happy, bubbly little boy who likes to hear conversation and is very alert when others are around. His favorite things to wear are his sleepers and dinosaur slippers. 
Living at W.I.N.G.S. has proven to be a huge support for both of us. I'm feeling confident as a young mom and I'm happy that my son Nathaniel is experiencing such a loving and caring environment.   
Currently W.I.N.G.S. has a waiting list of 46 moms needing the assistance that I am receiving. You can help another mom just like me by making a donation.

Thanks Interns!
 
At W.I.N.G.S. Maternity Home we have a loving team of 31 volunteers who speak into our mom's lives, care for their children and offer help in countless areas. 
 
Three of our volunteers are our college interns who each help two days a week. We are so thankful for Angela Hogie, Katie Simpson, and Tiesha Walker. Each of these ladies are great with children and can easily relate to our W.I.N.G.S. moms. They are a healthy and positive influence in our home.

KEY Partner - Lynda Harlos
 
We are thankful for all who help support W.I.N.G.S. Maternity Home through monthly giving. Our KEY partners are those who give $100.00 or more each month towards our independent learning centre as well as the growth and development of W.I.N.G.S.  Lynda Harlos is one of our KEY partners.
 
A Word From Lynda:
I had heard of W.I.N.G.S. Maternity Home through a women's church event.
Having my 18 yr. old daughter assume my husband and I were going to kick her out of our home because she was pregnant, started making me aware of the need for what W.I.N.G.S. Maternity Home does for our community. 
 
Even though our family surrounded my daughter with love and became a huge support to her, there are many young women who do not have this. Through our my personal experience with my daughter, I became aware of the sacrifice that Marion Cozens makes as she endeavors to assist young homeless pregnant women. It became obvious that supporting                                                                         W.I.N.G.S. was a must. 
 
I choose to be a home based travel agent 2 years after our grandson was born partly due to the flexibility this allowed with my schedule as then I could be an additional help and support for my daughter. It was one of the best decisions I have made. 
 
Let Lynda Help You:
If you are looking for assistance with travel planning, W.I.N.G.S. would suggest you contact Lynda. Allow her to free up some of your valuable time by doing the work of looking for and booking your holiday and/or business travel for you, seamlessly without you having to leave your home.
