YOUR SAFETY IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY

WiNGS strives to create a safe environment for our members, partners, staff, and community.  Out of an abundance of caution, the WiNGS Center is closed temporarily for programming, events, and in-center services.

To minimize disruption to your learning experience, many of our classes and workshops will be offered virtually. You can still continue one-on-one financial and career coaching services by phone. We will reach out to our members to ensure you can still count on us for the services and workshops you’ve come to expect.  Please contact us at 214.956.5901 if you have any questions.
