We are a National Mission Institution of the United Women in Faith.

MISSION
& HISTORY
.

What began as a mission of two Christian women to feed, clothe, and educate the children and families of Wilmington’s Southbridge neighborhood continues today. From those humble beginnings in 1927, our work and our reach have expanded, allowing us to serve low-to-moderate income individuals and families throughout New Castle County.

Through our Early Learning Center, Youth Development, Family Services, and Comprehensive Housing Counseling programs, we continue to fulfill the mission of our founders: To empower our neighbors by providing them with the tools and resources they need to be self-sustaining.
