This publication, produced by the ABA Commission on behalf of the National Guardianship Network, highlights the hallmarks of successful WINGS groups and outlines ten steps for launching and maintaining your own WINGS program.

Assessment of the Impact and Efficacy of Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS) (June 2015 Report)

To strengthen the work of WINGS and increase the number of states benefitting from effective WINGS, the National Center for State Courts conducted an assessment of the efficacy and impact of the four WINGS receiving 2013 start-up funds from the State Justice Institute and the Borchard Foundation Center on Law and Aging (NY, OR, TX, UT), and the first three states that had independently similar consensus-building groups (IN, MO, OH).


"What is WINGS" Video
The National Guardianship Network (NGN) developed a video, “What is WINGS,” narrated by District of Columbia Chief Judge Eric Washington, to introduce the WINGS concept to courts and stakeholders. The five-minute video is a lead-in to the NGN Replication Guide for WINGS (Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders). Visit the NGN website to find the video and a link to the Replication Guide.
