Emmaus is alive and well. Following the death of Father David, the Board of Directors was expanded and there is a large network of supporters continuing the vision.
“I am convinced that in spite of the complexity of life what will save man is for each Christian to take personal responsibility for two or three others who are poor or sick or broken. This is what I am trying to do now in Harlem, moving into an old brownstone where I can personally care for a few of God’s special people. We find so many people in the city’s shelters, but they get bused to a bed, fed a meal, and then they hang out at a corner drinking cheap wine all day. We have to offer more than that.” Father David Kirk quoted in:The Road to Emmaus, The Story of Emmaus in Harlem, Jim Brady
