Editorial: Little Willie Center shines

0 Comments | Leave a Comment


A shining source of hope and positive child development for 23 years, the Little Willie Center after-school program stands tall as one of this city’s most recognized faith-based support networks for families in need. And at the same time, the center is itself in the perpetual position of reaching out to the greater community for financial and volunteer support.

All this week, the center’s community development group has been hosting prayer vigils, health screenings and other events designed to further illuminate its mission and draw support. Those with the time and means to participate and help should seize the opportunity to do so.

The center has expanded its focus in recent years to include education service and workforce development for adults trying to improve their lives and the lives of their children. But the center’s long-standing core mission of “addressing the needs of latchkey children” in the West Greenville community has not changed since Renee Arrington founded the organization in 1990.
