WoMen Investigating New Goals and Solutions, (WINGS) is a self-sufficiency program for individuals who lack income due to divorce, separation, the death or disability of a spouse or partner, or loss of public assistance.

Through a series of workshops, one-to-one planning, and group participation, members gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to become more self-sufficient.

Our objective is to help you prepare for a competitive job market.

If you were:

A homemaker (male or female) who was taking care of your own home and family
were dependent of the income of a spouse, partner, other family member or public assistance for two or more years,
are no longer supported by that income due to divorce, separation, the death or disability of the source of income, or loss of public assistance,
are having difficulty obtaining employment adequate to support yourself 

You may be eligible for Displaced Homemaker Services.
