The Ministry of Caring Inc. (AmeriCorps Program)
The Ministry of Caring provides a network of services in the Wilmington, DE area. Our motto, “The poor should never be treated poorly,” holds true each and every day as the Ministry works to eradicate homelessness and poverty and help those most in need rise to self-sufficiency. The Ministry of Caring does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious creed, ancestry, union membership, age, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or political affiliation.
AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 800,000 AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve.
Members additionally get to be involved in service with other members throughout the state and nationwide. By serving others through AmeriCorps, they gain important life skills including leadership, guidance, compassion, sympathy and empathy. These skills enable the Members to grow themselves and broaden their views of the needs of society and how service impacts the lives of others.
