Wings helps special needs adults find friendship
The nonprofit program in Edmond includes a gift shop that sells clients’ artwork.
EDMOND — Wings helps special needs adults find a place to belong once they are finished with high school.
Preston Olson, 25, has Down syndrome and began attending Wings about six years ago. His family members are among the founders of the nonprofit organization.
“I get to paint, make cards, I do Bible study, and I make pottery, vases, bowls and cups,” Olson said. “I have plenty of best friends there that I make things with.”
