Helping children, youth and families with education, health care and social development. Providing programs that support positive youth development.
WESAP was founded in 2010 by educator and community organizer, Dr. Aurelia L. Curtis, to honor the memory of her father, James Milton Weeks. In the spirit of James Weeks who provided support for poor children and families in Liberia, and sought to help communities to build economic strength, the nonprofit has attempted since its inception to ease the burden of the less fortunate among us by lending a helping hand to lighten the load. It accomplishes this by helping wherever the need arises, to ensure that human dignity is safeguarded as it pursues its mission to increase access to better education opportunities, expand social development and improve healthcare.
While conditions in Liberia are at the genesis of WESAP, it is committed to providing assistance wherever the need arises, especially among recent immigrants to the US as they transition to a new culture and more complex systems of operation. We understand the need to quickly bridge the gap that is often present for youth and families as they seek to make positive connections in their new environments. WESAP has come to the aid of people in a variety of situations, assuring that they do not fall through the cracks and empowering them to make informed choices.
