What our members are saying:

“If it weren’t for you and the WiNGS], being a service that helps women no matter their income level, I still would be living month to month with home ownership a castle in the sky. There are lots of services out there that are happy to help someone figure out their finances, but they all either cost a fortune or we made too much to qualify for help. The WiNGS was the only place I found who would take me.

When I walked in… I had no budget or even a concept of where to start with creating one. My credit score was hovering around the mid 500’s, and the amount of stress I had worrying about bills was crushing.

Through the tools provided … I now have college savings funds for each of my three kids, a retirement account, and soon, a house.

I can’t thank you, enough for everything that you do!”

Credit WiNGS: A good credit score is important when you get ready to buy a car, rent an apartment, sign up for utilities like water and electricity, and even when you apply for a cell phone plan.

  • We help you apply for a $300 loan.
  • You repay the loan with monthly payments of $26.
