Wings Homeless Advocacy

Organization Mission

Wings Homeless Advocacy is committed to living our values of compassion, dignity and respect for all people by uniting our community to be volunteer advocates for those moving out of homelessness onto a path of healing, and working together to end chronic homelessness in Santa Cruz County.

The Big Idea:
Beds and Baskets

Wings’ 47 volunteers (and one part-time paid staff person) would like to expand the capacity for our partner agencies to help those experiencing homelessness complete tasks and obtain resources needed to become housed and self-sufficient. In addition to providing rides to medical and court appointments, we will help more people move into housing, and donate new refurbished beds ($100 value) and Welcome Home baskets ($50 value) full of personal care and household essentials, and a needed gift of hope.

The number of beds donated is up 58 percent this year and we’d like to continue that trend with your support! We partner with more than 50 case managers, and our other work includes assistance with identification cards through the DMV, and help with housing paperwork.


My Wings basket rocks! This was an extremely well thought out gift basket. Everything will be used and is greatly appreciated.
