The Gussie Wortham Foundation Inc. is a non-profit family and community based foundation that thrives on providing the community with all the resources needed to survive domestic abuse influding the following relocation, mental, medical, safety planning, and legal advocacy. We also provide a mentor program for young women and men.
The Gussie Wortham Foundation Inc. in collaboration with various local and state agencies also gives assistance in employment training and finding employment and learning job skills (resume writing, interview preparation, and proper attire preparation). The Gussie Wortham Foundation Inc. is a hands-on foundation that emphasizes one-on-one services to families in crisis. Our plan is to give each family serviced the attention that a shelter or group therapy cannot give. We also work with all parties involved in the cycle of domestic abuse (male, female, children, and animals). We not only raise awareness but also funding for domestic violence by hosting an annual basketball tournament in August as well as various fundraisers throughout the year. Our mentor program is available to young men and women 10-21 years old. This program is provided with little or no cost to families. In 2010, Education Before Basketball began to promote academics before athletics.
Sponsors for the annual basketball tournament are always welcome. Donations are encouraged throughout the year: monetary, non-perishable food, clothing, and school supplies will be used to fund our programs and distributed amongst families and children in need.
