The Harrelson Center is a nonprofit center that supports and partners with other nonprofit organizations in the Wilmington community. The center works with its partners to meet the needs of the community such as safe and
affordable housing, education, employment, health care and family support. The center recognizes the critical needs of others and encourages, uplifts and assists them in rebuilding their lives through the services provided at the center.
The Help Hub, a part of the Harrelson Center, was founded in 2015 when several churches in the Wilmington area joined to collaboratively serve people in need. The concept of a centralized emergency outreach center was born and The Help Hub was established. Today it provides short- term or emergency assistance to individuals and families in need of financial help and or guidance to connect them with additional resources.
The Help Hub was founded by: The Harrelson Center, First Baptist Church, First Presbyterian Church, and St. James Episcopal Church in 2015. Other churches have since joined the effort including Holy Cross Episcopal Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Winter Park Presbyterian Church and Wrightsville United Methodist Church.
