This week on Kitchen Chat: The gals from Wings!
Listen in tomorrow as I interview Rita and Rebecca from Wings. Wings is one of the charities supported by the work of Pearl Girls. We'll hear how Wings helps women and children in the community and what they hope to accomplish in 2010.
Please visit the Wings website for more information about their services and programs.
The mission of WINGS is to provide a continuum of integrated services in an effort to end domestic violence and homelessness one family at a time.
What They Do
WINGS helps homeless and abused women and children by offering integrated services that meet their needs for shelter, education, guidance and support. We provide safe, secure living environments, through transitional housing and emergency shelter, in residential neighborhoods that allow women to go to school, work, and care for themselves and their children.
WINGS is a 501(c)(3) publicly supported organization.
Who They Help
Our residents are women and children who are victims of domestic violence and need temporary safe shelter or who become homeless due to other extreme hardships and circumstances. Most of them come from the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago’s Cook and Lake Counties, the city of Chicago and surrounding areas.
WINGS receives an average of 200 calls per month from women of all ethnic backgrounds and ages and touches the lives of hundreds of families with direct services, information and referrals.
Rita will be sharing her recipe for a delicious Apple Walnut Cake!
