In 1991, the Marie C. and Joseph C. Wilson Foundation established Wilson Commencement Park (WCP) to help low-income single-parent families transition from public assistance to financial independence and personal self-sufficiency. WCP is a self-contained “community” where residents can live for 24 months in attractive and affordable housing and receive comprehensive care management, educational and life skills support, career-development assistance, and eventual placement in “next step” permanent housing.
We are committed to nurturing and supporting our families’ potential through holistic and integrated programs that include:
In accepting applicants to our two-year program, we ask only one thing of them: Are you ready to commit to changing your life and supporting yourself and your children? When they answer yes, we forge a nurturing and supportive partnership that enables our families to achieve their personal goals and realize their fullest potential.
WCP is committed to developing successful families and we work as a team to help change lives for the families we serve.
