ANGEL WINGS FOUNDATION wrote -
Angel Wings Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with epilepsy, allowing them to reach their full potential through independent living in the community.
The Need for Safe, Supportive Housing
- Wait lists to get into residential service provider homes can be up to 10 years
- 1 in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy in their lifetime
- 50,000 deaths occur each year from epilepsy related causes
- 30% continue to have seizures in spite of all treatment options
- 7 in 10 adults with disabilities live with a parent or guardian
Angel Wings Foundation will build and create homes, warm and loving homes with supports in place where like-abled adults with epilepsy can be happy, safe and independent. A home where family members can rest assured knowing that their loved one is cared for-well beyond their passing. Angel Wings Foundation will create an exceptional quality of life for its residents.

Your donation will help us accomplish our goal: the purchase of a residence. Independent living is vitally important to improve the quality of life for persons who may now feel isolated, withdrawn and alone due to uncontrolled seizures. Our Angel Wings homes will offer its residents educational, vocational and social opportunities. Our homes will have a foundation of love, care and compassion that will generate a community of tenderness, laughter and generosity, not only within the confines of its structure, but within the local community as well.
Your gift will help change a life and offer opportunity to an adult with epilepsy to live in a community and experience an individual-centered living experience. It is our fervent hope that this way of life will foster the establishment and development for personal preferences and values that stress dignity, individuality, choice and self-determination.
