Once a month, members of St. Paul's volunteer at DIMH, preparing and serving dinner to the men at the shelter. The DIMH shelter has grown from the efforts of the Christ Church outreach chair, Jeanine Kleimo, to care for the homeless men during the bitterly cold winter of 2008. She rallied almost all faith communities in years of sleeping on cots in church social halls. 33 men have a shelter with bunk beds, a kitchen, bathrooms applying for jobs and getting medical and dental care, and provided transportation. For more information about DIMH, please ask Fr. VonGonten or a member of the vestry.
St. Paul's will attempt more focus on this new outreach opportunity. Shepherd Place is a family shelter in Dover that was founded some 20 years ago by Fr. Lawrence Hunt and otherswho felt an acute desire to work to meet the need of thosethey saw in the Dover area who were homeless. The reason they come through are as varied as the people themselves. The usual stories include domestic violence, substance abuse, and personal tragedy such as a fire. For a full list of their needs, refer to their "wish list" on their website. www.sheperdplace.org
