Established in 1937, the center began as Methodist Women in Portsmouth joined to form a city mission board that would become involved in community needs and social issues. The Center is now in its seventy fourth year of service and ministry.
Wesley Community Service Center’s mission is to operate programs and services aimed at empowering the powerless and poor in Portsmouth’s Southside communities through Christian based services which improve the quality of life.
The Wesley Center remains committed to working for minority empowerment and building community across racial, economic and social barriers as well as acting as an advocate and broker for community services and assistance.
We continuously work to convey the message of human dignity and worth supported by the love of God.
