Elaine calls South Philadelphia home and believes in serving "our people" which is what makes her so passionate about serving at the Philadelphia Access Center. She and her husband Dennis first heard of the center from attending church at First Christian Assembly. Dennis, a Marine and Vietnam Veteran, asked Elaine, who had been a long-time friend to his family, to marry him eight years ago after his wife passed and Elaine had been through a divorce. God brought them back to Philadelphia when Elaine's mom was sick, after they each had been living in Florida. She enjoys reading and spending time together walking through the city of Philadelphia. Elaine takes great care of our Kid's Closet. Between her and Dennis, they have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.
