Westbay Community Action is a charitable organization serving the people of Kent County. We help with food, utilities, health, safety, and education.
Our mission is to empower and mobilize people through our programs, partnerships, and advocacy to gain greater self-sufficiency.
Individuals and families gain stability through basic needs assistance. They improve their circumstances with education, life-skills training, and case management.
We opened our doors in June 1966, one community organization in the national effort to fight poverty. We are still community-based and guided by our core purpose more than fifty years later. Today, we are the largest provider of basic needs in Kent County and assist nearly 10,000 households per year.
