Code Purple Moving to a new location

Code Purple is moving from the Pathway Shelter at Stein Hwy Church of God to St. Luke’s Episcopal Parish House at 202 N North Street, Seaford, DE 19973. Effective on Sunday, January 31st, 2016 at 7pm, St. Luke’s will be hosting for the remainder of our Code Purple season.  Check In will be at 7pm and check out is 7:45am. Please enter through the double doors on King Street.

The Code Purple Team wishes to thank Pastor Dan and the entire congregation of Stein Hwy Church of God for giving our homeless guests a warm place to be out of the elements. Without you, we would not be where we are! You gave us a strong foundation on which we are giving and loving our unsheltered guests.  We look forward to continue working with you on finding the solutions to our homeless guests needs.

The Pathway Shelter will no longer be a drop off location or open to our homeless guests. Please continue using Home Team Realty at 959 Norman Eskridge Hwy, Seaford, DE, Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturdays 9am to 12pm for donation drop off.

We are thankful to St. Luke’s for opening their hearts and their doors to give shelter for the remainder of our season. It takes the village coming together to love, feed, and house the most vulnerable of our community!

Any questions please contact Nikki at 302-519-0024 or sussexcountycodepurple@gmail.com.
