The Gussie Wortham Foundation Inc.

Our History

The Gussie Wortham Foundation began in 2004. It was founded by Mr. Kenneth Thompson who wanted to honor his late sister, Gussie Wortham who was a fatal victim of Domestic Violence in 1981 in Hartford, Connecticut by her estranged husband. Mr. Kenneth Thompson decided to pour his energy into helping others in various ways. Whether it be educating the public about domestic violence, coaching, assisting families in crisis,  volunteering, educating student athletes and parents about the ins and outs of college sports, reading to elementary school children, or providing supplies to veterans, schools and the homeless in need of the necessary tools neede to survive on a daily basis. The Gussie Wortham Foundation is here to serve the needs of the communities it serves while being adaptive and responsive.
