Mission Statement

Wilson Commencement Park provides comprehensive, quality resources and services to low-income parents and children so that they can develop assets to improve their family stability, increase their economic independence, and strenghten the community.

Description

Wilson Commencement Park (WCP) offers the means for low-income, single parent families to become and remain economically and socially self-sufficient by overcoming personal barriers to sustained employment, increasing their independent earning power, and breaking the generational cycle of poverty and welfare dependency. Many of the resident families are survivors of domestic violence, chemical dependency, poverty and/or homelessness.

WCP's staff inspires families to develop the life skills necessary to attain financial independence. Every day, WCP plants seeds for success by providing affordable, transitional housing, on-site early childhood education, case management services, life skills training, and comprehensive family support.

This program empowers people to discover and reach their lifelong goals. WCP is a place where hope is nurtured, self-esteem blossoms, lives become more meaningful, and poverty transforms to independence.
