New Member – Koinonia Community Solutions

Please help us in welcoming Koinonia Community Solutions to the Winterville Chamber of Commerce!
This nonprofit was founded in 2014 by Bishop Rosie O’neal of Koinonia Christian Center to serve as a separate entity from the church that can continue their mission of community outreach.
Executive Director Watsi Sutton and Program Administrator Michele Marston have been hard at work fulfilling their mission: Building bridges of opportunity to the underserved in northeastern North Carolina through education, housing, and economic empowerment initiatives.
They have brought a brick & mortar to Winterville to serve as a central location they can reach more people from. They currently have a program focusing on assisting middle school males and their families (although working on an expansion for young girls) through tutoring, mentoring, after school programs, teaching leadership skills, soft skills, public speaking, health and wellness information, conflict resolution skills and much more. They are able to help them see themselves through a positive lens to discover their self-worth and potential.
Koinonia Community Solutions is working on creating a world where no person is left behind. They believe that equity and access to opportunity is the God given right of every person. They are working to make this message heard and felt throughout our area!

Stay tuned for plans of a May ribbon cutting!
