We are continuing to require face coverings and social distancing in and out of our buildings.

History

How it all started...

Christian HELP has a long history of helping people find
their way forward through jobs.
It all began in 1992.
The husband and wife team of Dick and Madge Wilson and their friend, Harry Kunisch, leased a building on Concord Drive in Casselberry, FL in March of that year. They put out a sign, "Christian HELP”. It was Mrs. Wilson who created the acronym HELP from Hope, Encouragement, Love and Prayer, the methodology which fuels the mission still today.

The idea behind Christian HELP then and now, is to prevent homelessness you must have an income to afford a home. Christian HELP has consistently been in the business of helping people find that income through employment. We partner with anyone willing and able to work. Our mission to PREVENT HOMELESSNESS by helping people find jobs while providing for them materially and spiritually remains in place still today. It is as important now as when we started.

In 1996 Christian HELP moved to a 
bigger location in Longwood, FL.
Then in 2000, the ministry moved back to Casselberry, FL to our current location on Seminola Boulevard.
Since then, Christian HELP has added a 2,000 square foot 

food pantry to its site and a Christmas toy giveaway 
program to provide for the children with 
unemployed or underemployed parents.
Christian HELP is now known as the only faith-based, free employment source in Central Florida. We are recognized as specialists in our field of social service, for the results we earn, for our longevity and for the unique way in which results are achieved.



Back in 1992, it took a couple of months, but job seekers began to find their way to Concord Drive.  By 1994 the division of Christian HELP, CFEC (Central Florida Employment Council) was born. This division brought gave employers the chance to share job leads with Christian HELP’s job seekers.
By 1994 CFEC added job fairs as a direct connection between the unemployed or underemployed and companies that are hiring. That same year the Orlando Business Journal declared Christian HELP to be the most successful permanent placement agency in Central Florida.

In memory of:
David Richard "Dick" Wilson

Founder of Christian HELP
1942-2019

Christian HELP honors the loss of its founder,
David Richard "Dick" Wilson, who passed away
peacefully on August 5, 2019.


Dick Wilson felt a call on his life in 1992 to sell his
gift business & start a nonprofit in order to serve the community. The Christian HELP Foundation was born.
HELP stood for Hope, Encouragement, Love, & Prayer
because Dick wanted to be sure people left better than when they came to the ministry. The acronym still guides how we treat people.

Dick believed in always "doing something" for anyone that came through the doors of Christian HELP.
Ultimately, he wanted to tell people about the love of Jesus.
Dick made sure everyone was served & heard about God's love.
Dick realized quickly that his audience would be
job seekers & the hungry. Soon after opening its doors,
Christian HELP added a food pantry & the
Central Florida Employment Council (CFEC).
Dick retired from the ministry in 2015, but his legacy lives on.
Christian HELP, along with its CFEC division, continues to serve
thousands every year in Central FL with
employment coaching, food, resources & more, but
most importantly, with the love of God, so no one is without hope.
