MISSION: Dover Interfaith Mission for Housing (DIMH) exists to be a leader in providing homeless services and advocacy for displaced persons in Central Delaware.
VISION: DIMH will accomplish its mission by creating an environment with dignity, respect, and compassion.
Services will include education, addiction counseling, employment training, mental health resourcing, safe and affordable housing placement, and collaboration and advocacy for improved public policy affecting those experiencing homelessness.
DIMH will operate with grass-roots leadership that is spiritual and faith-based.
Dover Interfaith is more than a shelter.
We transform lives.
We have enabled the majority to acquire employment and stable lives, with an estimated economic impact of over $100 million over this period.
Those who are homeless have suffered a major disruption in their ability to provide for themselves. Dover Interfaith helps men and women and their families to regain productive lives in our community.
The new facility will have shelter, supportive housing, and a resource center with training space to do more to assist those experiencing homelessness.
Help us to restore the lives that have been broken by personal disaster, Covid-19, incarceration, and other trauma here in Kent County.
Please send donations to DIMH, PO Box 1148, Dover DE 19903
Thanks and blessings from the diverse DIMH board of Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Baha’I, and other people of faith in God and in our community.
Can your group, business, department, organization, club, neighborhood, etc. spare an evening to prepare and serve dinner at the Dover Interfaith Mission For Housing (DIMH)?
It’s surprisingly easy to do at relatively small costs for time well spent.
For information, please contact DIMH's Miss Wilma at 302-736-3600 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. She can help and advise about how best to arrange a meal for these men. Or, simply call to learn more.

One of the many inclusions in the recently passed CARES act is the $300 charitable deduction that "regular" taxpayers can now take on their 2021 tax returns.
The CARES Act, formally known as The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (H.R. 748), was signed into law on March 27, 2020.
A provision of the act allows taxpayers who do not itemize their deductions to make a $300 cash donation to the charity of their choice and claim it on their 2021 taxes. It's a win-win for donors and nonprofits alike.
This adjustment written into the CARES Act is available for cash gifts to public charities is limited to $300 per taxpayer ($600 for a married couple).
Previously taxpayers could deduct charitable contributions only if they itemized their personal deductions instead of taking the standard deduction. If you did not itemize, which represents about 90% of taxpayers, you were not eligible for this specific deduction.
THAT’S NOW CHANGED for both 2020 & 2021.
