Angel Wings Foundation
The Angel Wings Foundation wants to spread love, compassion and hope to local families when they need it the most and expect it the least. They support individuals and families who have recently experienced life changing events. Angel Wings has a genuine goal of being able to help those who are “in the middle”. They may not qualify for assistance or be looking for it, but could use some hope. Angel Wings Foundation receives all financial support through donations.

At Changing Rein, they know that connecting with a horse requires learning the relationship skills we all need to be successful in life. Grooming, leading and interactive activities on the ground teach students how to partner with their horses. But first, there must be a sense of mutual trust for both parties to feel safe. They show their students to be aware of how sensitive horses are to our energy and our body language. At CREAAT, their focus has shifted more toward supporting children and teens who have faced challenging starts in life and on-going difficulties and adults with mental health needs.

My Sister's Pantry
Since opening its doors to the community in 1999, My Sister’s Pantry has become one of the busiest food banks in the Tacoma area. The Pantry serves an average of 350 families per month and annually distributes approximately 125,000 pounds of food. Open three times a month, the caring food bank also provides substantial hot meal, served on tablecloths with metal cutlery and china. Fall and winter months are colder, wetter, holiday laden and, for many, depressing. The Pantry becomes a haven for fellowship, warmth and caring. Evening and Saturday openings mean minimum-wage-earning families can come without disrupting their work schedules.

Multicultural Child and Family Hope Center
The Multicultural Child and Family Hope Center (MCFHC) is a non-profit human services agency that provides culturally relevant support services to children and families. Childcare, parent-child visitation, emergency respite, job training and health support are just some of the ways the center works with families and children. A positive relationship between teacher and student is an important factor in the social, emotional and academic development of a child. The MCFHC strives to ensure that balance.

Windermere Professional Partners and The Windermere Foundation
The funds that Windermere Professional Partners donated to these organizations came from the Windermere Foundation. Each time a Windermere Professional Partners REALTOR® sells a home, a portion of their commission goes to the Windermere Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 1989. Contributions from Windermere agents combined with contributions from Windermere employees and public supporters have allowed the Windermere Foundation to raise over $35 million for programs and organizations that provide shelter, food, children’s programs, emergency assistance, and other services to those who need our help most.
