The first-of-its-kind in Edmonton, WINGS extended its services in the summer of 2012 to open The Home Next Door – an affordable housing complex which provides a safe and secure home
in a healthy, supportive community, to women with children to promote continued healing and independence.
WINGS recognized some families were leaving the second-stage shelter early in order to secure accommodations or staying beyond the standard program of six months when no other
accommodations could be secured, preventing the WINGS shelter from offering space in our programs to other families in need.
By addressing the shortage of affordable housing, The Home Next Door at WINGS aims to break the cycle of multi-generational poverty for future generations.
Violence against women happens in all cultures and religions, in all ethnic and racial communities, at every age, and in every income group.
