While the Opioid Impact Fee scholarship affects hundreds according to recent article in the Delaware News Journal (Edelman, 2023), Sunday Breakfast Mission continues to provide care, and resources for many of Wilmington’s homeless affected by opioid and other substance abuse issues.
“Nightly we see hundreds of homeless men and women struggling with life threatening issues of homelessness, and substance abuse. Many who would otherwise be left on the street because of situations such as this – can find safe shelter, nutritious meals, and programs to assist with rebuilding their life.”
Rev. Tom Laymon, Sr. Pastor, President and CEO of Sunday Breakfast Mission.
Last year Sunday Breakfast Mission provided 59,102 nights of safe shelter and 283,763 nutritious meals to the hungry and impoverished. Since its inception in 2005, SBM’s New Life program has help 269 men and women rebuild their lives and move away from issues of homelessness, and substance abuse and restore relationships with employers, family, church, and the community as a whole.
