Yolanda M. McCoy

6th District Council Member


Yolanda McCoy is Councilwoman for the 6th District and is no stranger to grass-roots organizing, cultivating community and advocating for projects, policies, and practices that make her district stronger. As a former human services professional, community outreach manager, and current resident of Hedgeville, Councilwoman McCoy has a passion for creating and cultivating community.

Previously, as a Community Outreach and Engagement Manager for Westside Grows Together (an initiative of Cornerstone West CDC), McCoy galvanized and mentored volunteers, managed community projects and facilitated powerful conversations to hold folks accountable.

She also strategized with neighbors and friends to empower those most vulnerable, recognizing that everyone has valid and often creative ideas.

Her passion for the community is surpassed only by her love of family, including her husband of 20 years – Avery McCoy, and their two sons.

Elected in 2016 to Wilmington City Council, McCoy served on the Community Development and Urban Planning Committee (Vice-Chair); Public Safety Committee; Education, Youth and Families Committee, and is co-founder of the Healthy Communities Subcommittee.

In addition to her current volunteer work with Westside Grows Together and Sisters Growing Strong Ministry, McCoy also serves on the board of Housing Alliance Delaware.
