Wings Homeless Advocacy is committed to living out our values of compassion, respect and dignity for all people by uniting the faith community to be volunteer advocates for those moving out of homelessness and onto a path of healing – working together to end chronic homelessness in Santa Cruz County.
Who We Are
Wings is a group of caring advocates from our faith community who are dedicated to supporting individuals in their walk out of homelessness. Working with professional case managers, we connect a volunteer with a homeless participant to help them obtain resources needed to become housed and self-sufficient. But more importantly, we provide steady, unconditional positive regard that instills confidence and ultimately shows participants that they can, indeed, succeed on their own.
What We Do
Working with community professionals from over a dozen local agencies, Wings acts as advocates to some of the most vulnerable, chronically homeless individuals in our community.
Our volunteers provide rides to medical and court appointments, find furniture and provide trucks and strong backs for new move-ins, and help people fill out the confusing paperwork needed to get housing assistance or ID. We also provide newly housed individuals and families with a laundry basket filled with new, basic household supplies to get them started enjoying their newfound sense of belonging.
