Diakonia 50th Anniversary
Since the summer of 1972, when a group of Mennonite young people volunteered their lives to live and serve the homeless, Diakonia has been acting out it's name "serving" the homeless. What began as one house and four little cottages is now two buildings providing up to 50 beds including family units that allow for families to stay together when needing emergency shelter.
Diakonia has been serving the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland for 50 years! Over these past 50 years, Diakonia has provided; emergency shelter, food assistance, food stamp application help, outreach, homeless prevention, rapid rehousing, COVID relief help over these past two years, and veteran services for homeless men, women, and families.
You can become a part of this 50 year tradition, your gift today will help Diakonia continue to serve another 50 years! Your gift provides matching dollars to obtain grant funding for our homeless prevention programs, and helps fund the gaps where grant funding does not help. We greatly appreciate your help so that we can keep up the good work that started so long ago.
