Hi, Here is a write up I provide to people who inquire about our program called "Shepherd's Office" in Georgetown. Just in case you needed more information about us. Please share if you want to so others can learn more about us. Thanks!!
The Shepherd’s Office in Georgetown, DE is a faith-based drop-in program for the homeless, hungry or lonely. Our hope is to provide an alcohol and drug free, supportive faith-based environment for people who are lacking family support, who are recovering alcoholics, recovering drug addicts, the homeless, hungry or lonely. We offer regular OPEN hours, home cooked meals, HVAC, a cell phone charging area, a bathroom, a sitting area, support groups, bible studies and various activities each week. We also help our guests with employment search and housing ideas. We help them navigate the community for other resources. We also use Facebook live Videos to help get the word out about what is needed for the people we are helping.
We have awesome people like you who care a lot about people and we have formed a group called "Shepherd's Helpers" for Monday's from 10 to 2 and "Crock-Pot People" for our FREE THURSDAYS LUNCH from 11 to 1. We also open on Wednesdays from 4 to 9 pm for a FREE DINNER AND A MOVIE NIGHT and on Fridays for our FREE DINNER AND A BIBLE STUDY from 5 pm to 8 pm. It is amazing how much people care in our community! God is at work in Sussex County through the hands and feet of our helpers!
At the Shepherd's Office, we see a lot of different poverty and crisis situations. We all jump right in and try our best to help. We focus on the basic things first and then we dig in to the more complicated situations like finding housing, becoming job ready, doing job search and then job retention and crisis intervention around issues related to mental illness, addiction issues and homelessness! Support is extremely important to our peers, guests and volunteers in recovery with a mental health disorder and/or a severe addiction as they re-engage in the community after receiving treatment or coming into the Georgetown area.
EMPLOYMENT is a primary goal of our daily efforts here when we are assisting our guests in their wellness and recovery. We keep learning how to perform a variety of tasks better and better at the Shepherd's Office. We perform various case management duties such as learning how to do basic intakes to gaining information to assess someone’s needs. We do the best job we can of "peer support" and encouragement and our middle name is
HOSPITALITY. We are always learning about the changing resources that can be utilized out in the surrounding community. And we appreciate your support of our program in Georgetown!!
Please call me or email me if there is anything I can do to assist you in the future. Please let me know if you have any questions, ideas, and comments.
