The Way Home program supports former prisoners transitioning from prison to society. Started by a small group of parishioners from St. Martha's Episcopal Church in Bethany Beach, the Rev. Jim Lewis, pastor, and volunteers in 1996, The Way Home has helped hundreds of ex-offenders.

Acclaimed Rehoboth Beach singer/songwriter Doug James entertained the group of supporters April 5 at Catch 54 Restaurant in Fenwick Island.
