We’re heartened to see our community take action during the unprecedented changes of the COVID-19 pandemic. People have been organizing food drives, checking in on their neighbors, and reaching out to family and friends to see how they’re doing.

Wilder continues to serve people throughout our community. We’re prioritizing our efforts and resources to support children, families and older adults through essential services such as child care, adult day health, home-delivered meals, mental health and supportive housing.

Thank you for being helpers through your donations, volunteer service, and acts of kindness!
