MOTHER WADDLES MISSION
For nearly four decades Reverend Charleszetta Waddles, affectionately known as "Mother
Waddles," devoted her life to providing food, hope, and human dignity to the downtrodden and disadvantaged people of Detroit.
Founder, director and spiritual leader of the Mother Waddles Perpetual Mission, a nonprofit, nondenominational organization
run by volunteers and dependent on private donations, Waddles believed that the church must move beyond religious dogma to
focus on the real needs of real people.
Even though she met her demise in the year of 2001 her Mission is still ongoing through the combined efforts of her daughter
Andrea and her son Lathet. To date Mother Waddles Mission has existed for 51 years.
