Collection Description

Biographical Note

Decatur-area Emergency Assistance Ministry (DEAM) is a nonprofit organization that is devoted to the purposes of preventing homelessness and hunger and the provision of help and relief for various emergency needs of area residents and homeless. The organization grew out of the Decatur Cooperative Ministry, which had been founded in 1969 as a cooperative effort between an elementary school principal and three area churches. DEAM grew into its own organization in the early 1970s, and the number and denominational variety of Decatur-area churches involved in the ministry expanded during these years.

Scope and Content Note

The papers in this collection span between the years 1975-1988, and they include minutes of the ministry’s Coordinating Committee, monthly Treasurer reports, monthly reports of services rendered, annual summaries and annual financial reports, letters from committee chairs, volunteer memos, as well as lists of volunteer and committee member contacts.
