Recently, Wilmington Delaware was highlighted as a city with high rates of violent crime, substance use, low educational attainment and high unemployment and poverty. A substantial portion of the urban population of Wilmington faces multiple challenges to positive living environments and family outcomes.
Waterbrook Hills has partnered with Freedom Outreach to bring positive life opportunities and social justice to children and their families, primarily in Wilmington Delaware. Specifically we help to secure funds to send approximately 30 children a year to a summer camp program at Tri-State Christian Camps in Port Jervis, New York, and to attend a winter or spring retreat.
Whether at the camp’s summer programs or on the retreat, the time together with Freedom Outreach Staff outside of the urban environment of Wilmington brings a time of immersion in nature, positive programming, life skills training, consistent positive interactions with peers and adults, and a faith-based message for coping with life’s challenges. Twenty years of partnership with Tri-State Christian Camp in Port Jervis, New York has produced a legacy of positive life outcomes for children and youth of Wilmington.
