The John O. Wilson Hamilton Neighborhood Center, Inc. offers the community FREE goods and services every operating day. Our mission is to provide support services that enhance the quality of life for individuals and families. Often times, individuals or families arrive at our door and they are in need of food and/or clothing. And sometimes, they arrive with a much larger need, like the need for funding to avoid eviction. At the John O. Wilson Hamilton Neighborhood Center, Inc. we seek to provide an array of support services to assist our families, but we cannot do it alone. We need your help!
Your taxable donation, can be used to feed a family, improve our programs for adults, children and seniors, purchase supplies and equipment, sponsor a child to summer camp or help remove some of the challenges our families face at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
