about us

Founded in 1993

The Euell A. Wilson Center an afterschool and summer program for youth and families. We are a Christian organization designed to enrich the hearts and lives of children and strengthen the family through the love of Christ. The Euell A. Wilson Center (EAWC) was founded May 1993 in honor of Euell A. Wilson who was a standout athlete in the city of Fort Wayne. Euell died at the age of nineteen. He touched many lives through his humble and caring nature.

In the Fort Wayne Community, the EAWC is recognized as a safe haven for children and their families.

Euell always wanted to work with children. Today his dream lives on in the rooms of the center that bears his name in the community where he was raised.
