Mission & Service

Whitefield Center

History:

The Whitefield Foundation was founded in October 2013 by a group of Christ Church Anglican (CCA) businessmen and other community leaders who have a strong interest in the renewal of the Thomas Square area, which is the “Heart of the City” and the new home for CCA. Thomas Square has a wonderful heritage and diversity, but like the Landmark Historic District of 60 years ago, is in need of renewal physically and spiritually. The Whitefield Foundation was formed after an in-depth study of the area’s needs as well as interviews with our key outreach partners who have been focused on improving health and fighting poverty in the neighborhood for many years.

Our Mission:

Our Mission is to have a significant impact on lives in the Thomas Square area through a focused and measured approach to putting the key education building blocks in place for a fulfilled and productive life. This will be accomplished through:

  • outcome based education initiatives targeting at-risk K-12 students
  • workforce development for the working poor
  • mentoring of low-income seniors
  • serving as a resource and coordination center for 22 community partners.
  • Our Motto:

    “Transforming the Heart of the City One Life at a Time”

    Our Method:

  • Intense focus on the Thomas Square area
  • Partner with volunteer & care providers to bring many more resources to the area
  • Take an approach that matches individual need with knowledge and resources
  • Become a resource center that eliminates overlap and duplication with partners
  • Measure results and be able to replicate this model
  • Location/Contact Us:
