The Coronavirus Hits the Communities of Delaware

In order to help reduce the impact of the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic we ask that everyone comply with the safety and prevention recommendations provided by our public health and government officials. The Delaware Ecumenical Council on Children and Families provides assistance to the elderly, disabled, and persons with serious chronic conditions. During these challenging times, our team also provides support to our neighbors who are most vulnerable to the pandemic, by running errands, telephone reassurance and regular telephone companionship to help reduce isolation and depression. We are also open to collaborating with other agencies or organizations seeking to fill service gaps for Delawareans in need.

For more information, please call (302) 225-1040.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       For additional Coronavirus information, see our "Coronavirus Info" page...

"I am so pleased there are programs like Faith in Action. It has been a God send for our family. D.L. helped my brother when he was dying from cancer, reach all his doctor appointments. She also made him feel very special with her kindness and concern over his health. Now she is helping my 85 year-old mother who is hearing and sight impaired, by taking her to doctor and test appointments. She has become a part of our family. The first time I met her, she was helping my Mom. She truly cares about her clients."  (2019)
