Wings Initiative

The ‘Wings’ Mission
Recognizing an opportunity to expand its services and help even more children in crisis, the Eagle Ranch Board of Directors established The Wings Initiative in 1997.wings stories

The Wings Initiative is a global initiative of Eagle Ranch to equip others. We offer guidance to children’s programs and other non-profits who are getting started or retooling their programs. From advising on strategic planning to sharing best practices in our daily operations, we provide a wide range of support.

Wings has helped establish children’s ranches, as well as girls’ and boys’ homes, throughout the United States – and even abroad in Latin America and other areas of the world. Nearly 1,000 organizations in the United States and abroad have benefited from this outreach.

After more than a decade of offering introductory group seminars, we have restructured the program. For individuals looking for the first steps in the process of starting or retooling a children’s home, we now offer information online via a booklet available for download (see link below).

The Wings Initiative continues to provide one-on-one mentoring and consulting services to select groups in the start-up or fine-tuning of children’s programs and non-profit organizations.
