About

Walking Tall Wilmington is an innovative and highly mobile movement focused upon building meaning, and empowering relationships with individuals and families in poverty throughout greater New Hanover County, and beyond.

Most of the resources available for individuals experience poverty at primarily in the downtown area. This was very problematic because there were also individuals scattered throughout New Hanover County that did not have the ability or the means to receive these resources. For example, not having transportation, money, or the know-how.

We concluded that we were assuming we knew what these individuals needed. We never actually asked them…. We always assumed. We think that this is an ongoing problem throughout all charities. We had to step back, and start to ask ourselves, “What are some ways we can help you?” Sometimes people just want a listening ear…..Walking Tall Wilmington gives them that ear.
