The Wilkinson Center

Organization Description: 

The Wilkinson Center utilizes a holistic approach in combating poverty. Our programs are designed to work with the entire family, to empower them to help themselves break the cycle of poverty. The Wilkinson Center's programs are two-tiered: We first address the immediate family needs through our Food Pantry and emergency services. Second tier programs begin to move families out of poverty through case management and programs designed to provide the tools and skills necessary to assist them in achieving economic self-sufficiency. Social services, Adult Education programs and our free CLIMB After-School and Summer Program all work together in harmony to provide each family the resources to create a "pathway out of poverty" tailored for their unique circumstances.

In 2008, the Wilkinson Center provided its services over 42,000 times. Half of those served are children. One hundred percent of our programs serve low-income families for whom hunger is a reality and homelessness is always a possibility. The Wilkinson Center strives to offer hope and a hand-up to people living in poverty.

The Wilkinson Center serves the following areas:
75204, 75206, 75214, 75217, 75223, 75226, 75227, 75228, 75246
