Delaware Futures helps at-risk youth develop social, academic, and problem-solving skills needed to expand their opportunities. Volunteers provide internships, mentor, and participate in service projects and outdoor activities.
East Side Charter School
East Side Charter is a public school serving pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Westminster volunteers participate in their strong in-school mentoring program.
Emmanuel Dining Rooms (EDR)
Three EDR programs help alleviate immediate needs of some of Delaware’s hungry, homeless, and working poor, including children. During the pandemic, food collections in our parking lot support this ministry, but typically, Westminster sends a team to serve meals on-site.
Family Promise is a partnership of congregations in New Castle County helping families facing homelessness. As part of a rotational program, Westminster offers shelter and meals on-site for one week, four times each year. Volunteers provide transportation, hosting, set-ups and more. The program is currently on pandemic hiatus.
For more than 35 years, Friendship House has served the Delaware community with the support of volunteers, donors, and community and faith partners, including Westminster. Friendship House serves more than 10,000 people annually through their myriad of programs, including the Clothing Bank, Empowerment Centers, Code Purple, Financial Assistance, and Transitional Housing. Westminster volunteers participate in these programs by preparing meals, collecting clothing, staffing Code Purple operations, and serving on the organization’s board and committees. There are many opportunities to get involved.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity provides affordable housing for low-income families and individuals. Volunteers work with future homeowners on constructing their houses, and Westminster has done major framing projects on our front lawn.
