Kate’s Story

When fire tore through Kate’s apartment building, it destroyed everything she owned. But she was not going to let it destroy her.


Without insurance and two small children depending on her, Kate knew her first priority was to use her savings to rebuild a home for her children. And that this meant she would go without for a while.

So Kate went to work intermixing the same four pieces of clothing. That is, until the wonderful community outreach that helped Kate led her to Wings. Not only did Wings help Kate with new outfits, Kate felt special for the first time in a long time, while her volunteer fussed over her to make sure she had the best possible fit for her needs. Instead of feeling defeated by the fire, Kate cried tears of joy as she left Wings.
