Marci Swaim-Wild


Marci Wild, a native Floridian, grew up primarily in a single mother family. As a child she witnessed the many hours her mother worked to meet the needs of the family. During this time there wasn’t a strong base of community resources to help her mom with the financial and emotional stress of being a single parent. Marci became a single parent at the age of 20 and again at the age of 26. She, in turn, began to experience the financial and emotional stress of being a single parent to her precious children. Knowing the need within the community, Marci began E.S.T.H.E.R. in 2002. Weekly meetings begun, community resources enlisted, and donations of clothing/household items were received to help other single mother families. These steps led to the opening of E.S.T.H.E.R. office in 2007. Marci married in 2008 and was blessed with another child. Currently she continues to move E.S.T.H.E.R. forward by implementing innovative programs, cultivating relationships with dedicated volunteers and connecting with local/national business partners allowing E.S.T.H.E.R. to continue embracing single mother families throughout Central Florida.
