As March warms up, we wind down at Code Purple. We are always sad to say goodbye to our guests that we have grown to love as our very own family.
We will be open tonight (18th) and tomorrow night (19th) in Seaford (men) and Bridgeville (women). The temps beyond that are all above 32 degrees.
We are so grateful to everyone that has poured into our ministry this year. Please continue to pray for our guests as they make their way out into the world. It won’t be easy for some of them. We trust that the many prayers they have received this season have already paved the way for them to find the redemption that God offers.
We will be closing locations on different days. Please see below for a list of shelters and availability.
Delmar -Renovate Church: Last day is Friday March 15th.
Laurel-Nazarene Church: Last day is Saturday March 16th.
Milford- Avenue Methodist Church and Nazarene Church: Last day is Sunday March 17th.
St. Luke’s (Seaford), Gateway Fellowship (Bridgeville) will continue to operate when the temps are below 32 degrees. We will update the calendar and website as needed.
Please keep an eye out for emails from the SignUp Calendar. We will cancel the days that we are not open. Those days are labeled “OnCall” because we may or may not be open.
Georgetown Presbyterian will still continue to be open nightly under their emergency shelter direction.
Immanuel will also continue to operate nightly through April.
We would like to thank everyone that has served alongside of us this season. We thank the ones that are still serving through these last few bitter nights. We can not do it without your support!
Even though we are approaching the end of the season, we still have new volunteers stepping up to help us serve those in the community that are experiencing homelessness. We wanted to share one’s testimony after spending last night with the guests in Milford.
“Man, I wish I would have started a long time ago! Beautiful ministry. Hard to watch them go this morning. Would’ve sat around all day with them if allowed. Lord willing, I will take a night each week next year.” -New Volunteer
We love it when people join us and see just how great it is to serve alongside us at Code Purple. Don’t miss your blessing!
