Thursday, July 25th we will open our hearts (in a different way!) to the community to help kids and their families by providing free backpacks full of school supplies! Please consider joining us that afternoon from 4-7:00 PM, right here at 600 S. Harrison Street Wilmington, DE 19805. I’d love to share some time with you at the Family Counseling Center’s ‘Community Back to School Event’!
I also want to share a story with you…
When I was eight years old we moved from Oklahoma to Philadelphia – in the middle of the school year – arriving at my class with very little school supplies (none to be exact). My parents were really struggling financially (they had to borrow money even for the gas & tolls when we left for Philadelphia). Imagine how it felt to show up with no bookbag and no supplies. I distinctly remember feeling ‘ashamed’ and ‘unworthy’ and I remember some of the other kids’ expressions and remarks.
And to top it off there I was with my Oklahoma accent (‘cowboy twang’) in a ‘very Philly’ (‘yoooz guyzzz’) environment! It wasn’t a good feeling… I want us to help a kid so she/he doesn’t have to face this – and more importantly – that the supplies are there for a kid to be able to hit the ground running and learn!
But we can’t do this alone – we need your help!
Your support would mean a lot to a child and her/his family – would you please consider ‘sponsoring’ a child by helping with the purchase of a supplies-filled ‘backpack/bookbag’ at $40?
Together, we can really make an impact on a family!
We’ll appreciate whatever you are able to contribute. Thank you so much for your time and consideration – and for opening your hearts!

The Family Counseling Center of St. Paul’s is in the process of renovating our newly acquired property at 301 N. Van Buren St., which will enable our team to welcome more clients, increase our capacity, and help stabilize the neighborhood. However, like all renovations, unexpected needs have arisen which have delayed and increased the cost of the project. Our Raise the Roof Campaign goal has now been revised and is set at $287,450. We have currently received $270,205 in capital funding. We hope to complete the renovations, build the new two-story addition, and be open for business by the Winter of 2018. Thank you to all our benefactors who have made this investment possible!!
Our renovations are 94% funded. Will you join us in reaching 100%?
