Our History

The Gussie Wortham Foundation began in 2004. It was createed because its founder, Kenneth Thompson wanted to honor his late sister, Gussie Wortham who was murdered in 1981 in his hometown of Hartford, CT by her estranged husband. 


Coach K decided to pour his energy into helping others in various ways. Whether it be educating 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, The Gussie Wortham Foundation is here to serve the needs of the communities it serves while being adaptive and responsive.
