Community Outreach has been a priority of Dumas Wesley for over 100 years. It serves the Crichton community, the boundaries of which are Florida Street to I-65, and Dauphin Street to Stone Container (Cotton Street), including Liberty Park. Through this program, all ages are served. Seventy-five percent of the population served is African-American and 25% is Caucasian/Other. The average annual income of the families we serve is $7,500 or less.
The purpose of our Community Outreach Program is to:
- Provide direct daily contact with the Crichton neighborhood’s families.
- Provide a liaison between the community’s citizens and governmental entities.
- Monitor senior citizens for emergency needs.
- Provide an annual Christmas Toy Store to underprivileged families.
