The History of Wilkinsburg Family Support

Wilkinsburg Family Support Center (WFSC) was established as part of a plan to establish resident driven family support centers in three communities – Homewood, Wilkinsburg and Duquesne over a three-year period.  Homewood was opened in 1993, Wilkinsburg was opened in 1994 and Duquesne was opened in 1995.  The initial target population was families with children ages 0-3 but that was expanded to families with children ages 0-5 by 1996.  The centers were created to utilize the strength-based approach to service delivery to families.
