Mission Statement

We are an interfaith community organization addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of homeless men in the Greater Dover area by providing them with shelter and sustenance, fostering self-reliance, and offering encouragement and a vision of hope for their lives.

Description

The Dover Interfaith Mission for Housing (DIMH) is a nonprofit organization of local faith communities concerned with the needs of homeless men in the Greater Dover area. It was formed by a group of faith community representatives who sought to provide cold-weather shelter in early 2008 following the inability of past shelters to meet the needs of men. Other local shelters focus on women and families, leaving men-literally-out in the cold. On December 1, 2008 DIMH opened on a permanent basis. Limited financial resources provided for an office/intake center with a shower for guests to use prior to using the shelter of church halls, and for part-time staffing. Board members organized local faith communities to provide dinner and breakfast to shelter guests daily, and church halls were used on a rotating basis through early September of 2010. On September 9th of 2010 we opened our newly renovation facility at 684 Forest Street in Dover where we are able to house and feed 36 homeless men at a time.
