Wheeler, Wilson and Johnson Community Projects, Inc. was organized in 1994, exclusively for educational and charitable purposes.  

Since its founding, the Corporation has had eight Presidents and three Executive Directors.  Joy Elaine Daley, the first president, had the vision of forming the Corporation and worked diligently for it to become a reality.   In addition to Ms. Daley, the past Presidents were Pauline L. Monsanto, Phyllis Forde, LaVerne King, Regina L. Williams, Linda Simms-Chin, Monica L. Whiting-Hogans and Marci Whitehead.  The past Executive Directors are Rudene Scipio-Watkins, Ronell Porch and Yvonne Rolle-Watts.

The current President is Donna Joseph and Executive Director Charlane Brown-Wyands. 

Wheeler, Wilson and Johnson Community Projects, Inc. works in conjunction with Eta Omega Omega Chapter on various programs.  The goals of the Corporation are to: 

• exercise, promote and protect the privileges and interests of the Bronx County 

• foster a healthy interest in the civic affairs of the community  

• develop good citizenship  

• increase the motivation of youth  

• provide scholarships, awards and/or sustenance grants for the purposes of assisting college bound students, following students throughout their four year college experience  

• sponsor seminars and programs that are actively engaged in promoting training and educational activities. 

The Corporation provides service programs, scholarships, workshops and seminars.  The Rites of Passage Program which will celebrate 30 years of mentoring high school girls.  The Program provides young women with yearlong intensive workshops on such critical areas as personal development, ancestral history, interpersonal relations, etiquette, goal setting and financial preparedness.       

Traditionally, we have seven scholarships sponsored by the Corporation are the Grace Wheeler Memorial Scholarship, the Irma Wilson Memorial Scholarship, the Thora Dudley Memorial Scholarship, the Wheeler, Wilson and Johnson HBCU Scholarship and the Eta Omega Omega Rites of Passage Scholarship for a graduating initiate of the Rites of Passage Program.   Each scholarship awards students $2,500 per year. The scholarship recipient with the highest Grade Point Average receives the Bessie Johnson Memorial Scholarship which is $500. Recently, we added a $500 Former President Scholarship for a students with a disability and a $500 Dorothy Sharpe-Hart Scholarship for a student attending a community college.

During COVID-19, we are committed to S.O.S., Saving Our Scholarships and supporting our scholarship recipients through their four years of study in a college or university.  

Wheeler, Wilson and Johnson Community Projects, Inc. has been an important part of the Bronx community, as demonstrated by the numerous residents served by its programs and educational scholarships.  The Corporation looks forward to continuing to provide exemplary service to the Bronx community for many years to come.
