background

For years, area churches and non-profits have discussed ways to more efficiently serve those seeking financial assistance and/or needing help connecting to other resources.

Rather than working separately to address these concerns, The Harrelson Center, along with three Wilmington churches, combined resources to create The Help Hub. The Harrelson Center’s central location, on-site resource connections and heart to serve make it a uniquely ideal home for The Help Hub. By merging resources, we are able to make a greater impact in serving individuals and families in need in our community.
