The Trauma Survivors Foundation seeks to improve the lives of children and families who have experienced a traumatic event by providing mental health services through a network of trained trauma therapists. We grant scholarships to high school and college seniors who are seeking careers in the mental health field in order to promote further research into trauma psychology. We help firefighters, police and EMS with scholarships to attend approved training classes. We train emergency service personnel to provide crisis intervention when a traumatic event occurs.
The Trauma Survivors Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the State of Delaware. The money raised through donations from caring individuals goes directly to providing trained therapists for emergency response during and after traumatic events, training to expand the network of responders and sponsorships to those that want to become certified and help carry out our mission. All of our services are offered at a national level. Anyone and everyone is affected by trauma and crisis. We want to help those who need our support.
The Wilmington West Rotary Club was chartered in 1956. We meet on Wednesday afternoons for lunch at the University and Whist Club in Wilmington, DE. We currently have 40 members in our Rotary Club and are looking to expand membership. We are part of Rotary International, a service club association that includes approximately 34,000 Rotary clubs, with 1.2 million members, in nearly 200 countries around the world.
The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. Although Rotary clubs develop autonomous service programs, all Rotarians worldwide are united in a campaign for the global eradication of polio.
The Ministry of Caring is a vibrant community of staff, volunteers, donors and diverse supporters united by a passion to serve the poor. Together, we gladly give of ourselves to fulfill the vision of our founder and executive director, Brother Ronald Giannone, OFM Cap., “the poor should never be treated poorly.”
We live this vision in myriad ways. Through the nutritious meals for the hungry at Emmanuel Dining Room. Through the cheerful rooms for residents of our shelters, transitional residences and long-term housing. Through the helping hands we lend to the jobless. Through the child care and education for offspring of the poor and homeless. And through our outreach services to anyone in need. We listen unceasingly for new struggles of the poor and creative ways to address these struggles. We seek gaps in services for the poor and fill them. We live in hope for the day when we will have eradicated the shame of poverty in Wilmington. Then, we will have attained our ultimate aspiration: to go out of business.
