Welcome To Wesley Community Center
Wesley Community Center’s services transitions families towards self-sufficiency by meeting the spiritual and basic needs of families of all ages offering assistance in education, workforce development and health and wellness.
Opened in 1966 to meet the emerging socio- economic needs of families in crisis and in need of support to overcome economic hardships, the Wesley Community Center has grown from a drop-in help center with one paid staff member and a budget of less than $25,000 to assist a few families to a comprehensive social service agency with paid staff of over twenty people, a million dollar budget and a dozen programs serving more than 7,000 people a year in the areas of workforce development, health and wellness and education.

Every year over 6,000 people come through the doors of Wesley Community seeking affordable, healthy food, job assistance, and academic assistance for their children, support for their elderly parents and support to have a healthy baby.
While most of the cost to assist those in needs is covered through a number of funding sources, there is a funding between what we have and what we need.
Filling this funding gap is the difference between us being able to help everyone who walks through our doors or only some! Gap funding comes in when all other funding is exhausted for a program.
Every year from Giving Tuesday until December 31, we invite people to make a contribution to fill the gaps the next year will bring. Click here to make a gift today!
We are committed to:
- Responding to families and individuals in crisis.
- Providing program opportunities for all ages.
- Providing a community space for local community groups that respond to neighborhood concerns.
- Supporting community endeavors and build bridges of understanding between people in West Dayton and throughout the greater Dayton community.
