I am thankful to God for the Wesley Community Service Center! In particular, I have had the pleasure of working hand-in-hand with Mrs. Renyatta Banks! Mrs. Banks is always looking for ways to improve the dwelling of the center, while taking advantage of any opportunity to further serve our Portsmouth community! I have very fond memories of Mr. John Hatcher as he assured me that Mrs. Banks would be an asset to our community and he was right! I am confident that our center will continue its wonderful outreach programs through the guidance of Mrs. Banks...as she so mildly says "We are working to make the Wesley better ONE step at a time"... I applaud our directorship for caring about the well-being of the Portsmouth community!

About Us

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.
