Angel Wings Foundation

Homes Built with Love – Why Private Funding is More Important than Ever

  • 1 in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy in their lifetime
  • 3 million Americans and 65 million people worldwide have epilepsy
  • 30% or 900,000 in the US continue to have seizures in spite of all
        therapeutic treatment options
  • 50,000 deaths occur each year from epilepsy related causes
  • 85% of adult individuals with disabilities live at home as dependents
  • Fewer than 100 residential openings are available statewide in Illinois
  •  Epilepsy affects more people than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular  dystrophy and Parkinson’s combined
  • Safe supportive housing is necessary for the thousands living with uncontrolled seizures

 

We Don’t Just Create Homes, We Develop Independence for People Affected by Epilepsy

Angel Wings Foundation’s goal is to create a new housing model. State funding for residential services in Illinois is nearly non-existent. The Angel Wings Foundation will seek donors, grants and fundraise to create housing that will service adults with epilepsy. We will build and create homes, warm and loving homes with supports in place, where like abled people with epilepsy can be happy and safe. A home where a family member can rest assured knowing that their family member is cared for – well beyond their passing. The Angel Wings Homes will provide an exceptional quality of life for its residents.
