Our response to COVID-19

Due to the continuing healthcare crisis, we are suspending all ministry gatherings and events for the remainder of 2020.

The Ministry of Caring remains committed to serving the needs of the poor, the homeless, and the hungry throughout the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

Although we have temporarily closed many of our programs to comply with guidelines on social distancing, our shelters and holistic housing programs remain open and our Emmanuel Dining Room program continues its mission to feed those in need through the provision of takeout food (breakfast and lunch) at its three locations in Wilmington and New Castle.  The support of our generous donors means hundreds of men, women, and children receive healthy, nutritious meals every day. To you, our committed supporters, sponsors, and donors we give our eternal thanks.

The Ministry of Caring is a vibrant, community-based nonprofit organization of staff, volunteers, donors, and diverse supporters united by a passion to serve the poor.  We provide a network of social, health, and support services for those in the greater Wilmington, Delaware area who are living in poverty, including the homeless and working poor.
