When & Where
Alston Wilkes Society
The Alston Wilkes Society (AWS) is a statewide non-profit organization that provides those most at risk with hope for a brighter future. AWS gives hope and rebuilds lives through rehabilitative and prevention services. The agency was founded in 1962 as a non-profit organization led by a group of dedicated volunteers working under the direction of the Reverend Eli Alston Wilkes, Jr., a Methodist minister who labored as a tireless and devoted worker in helping those less fortunate. Today, the Alston Wilkes Society is the largest statewide agency of its kind providing direct services in North and South Carolina to not only offenders, but also the homeless, families in crisis, at-risk youth, and homeless veterans.
