Realizing The Dream
Eagles’ Wings officially opened in Coker on November 1, 2013
We dreamed of a family-oriented neighbor hood where people would have direct support professionals dedicated to assisting them to live independently, and focusing on their emotional, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational needs being met.
We dreamed of learning opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities to gain independence and a work ethic through meaningful employment, and a workplace where each adult would be productive and successful, no matter their level of ability.
As a community...
We dreamed of serving individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, and for them to have an opportunity to contribute financially, emotionally and spiritually to their community.
We wanted to be proactive about the services available to improve and increase the quality of life for family members when they are ready to leave home and be more independent in their own lives.
We wanted to be proactive about what seemed to be limited options available to students once they leave the school system vocationally and residentially.
As a community...
We wanted to be proactive about the ways we can contribute to the emotional, financial, social, spiritual, residential, and vocational needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families in the community.
