Priscilla Rakestraw, Deputy Director of Development for the Ministry of Caring, discussed their mission, serving the poor with dignity and respect.  She discussed how they have grown, from a local Jesuit’s attempts to house homeless women, to a network of services including child care, emergency shelter and emergency relief for families and individuals, support for victims of domestic violence, medical and dental care, addiction and mental health support, retirement housing and job and educational programming. The need is growing, financial support, volunteer hours and donations of food, clothing, diapers and toiletries, and home supplies from furniture to bedding are needed as they work to counter the effects of social determinates keeping the poor from attaining self-sufficiency. We also discussed their Emmanuel Dining Rooms, where (pre-COVID) anybody can be seated in a clean, cheerful dining room and served a nutritious meal in restaurant fashion, and there are no questions asked. Emmanuel Dining Room helps alleviate the immediate needs of Delaware’s hungry with nutritious meals at three locations in economically depressed areas of Wilmington and New Castle, Delaware, now served ‘to go’ for everyone’s safety.  Emmanuel Dining Room is supported by f nearly 100 churches, synagogues, businesses, and civic groups who prepare and serve meals on a rotating basis.
