Wings Foundation

WINGS’ mission is to break the cycle and heal the wounds of childhood sexual abuse by providing education, advocacy and support to adult survivors, loved ones, providers and communities. Specifically, WINGS works to connect survivors, loved ones, providers and communities with the resources they need to speak about, heal from and thrive beyond CSA trauma, to live their fullest, healthiest lives. We do this by offering referrals to qualified therapists, training and education, and therapist-facilitated support groups in a number of confidential locations to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and their loved ones. Our program serves anyone who is 18 and older. Our “Survivors’ & Loved Ones’ Guide to Healing” handbook is a comprehensive resource used in our support groups to facilitate group members’ processes of learning and healing. The most powerful aspect of our program is the dialogue and exchange that occurs among and between group members in their weekly WINGS support group. In addition to support groups, WINGS offers local and national referrals, workshops, speaking presentations and training to survivors, loved ones, service providers and the general community. WINGS also offers this comprehensive website and an onsite resource lending library containing information on healing from childhood sexual abuse and trauma. We invite you to utilize these resources to become more informed and empowered in your own journey as a survivor, loved one, community ally or professional working with CSA trauma. While WINGS is currently based in Denver, Colorado, and our support group services are primarily offered here, we are actively building organizational capacity to be able to offer our services nationwide. If you would like to learn more about being a WINGS partner, please contact our Executive Director at jenny.stith@wingsfound.org  (Read More...)
