Family Promise of Southern Delaware hosts several events each year to engage support, raise funds and spread the word about our mission to end family homelessness.  

Please consider joining us for our upcoming events below!

Family Promise of Southern Delaware has been selected as the recipient of Donation Day on Tuesday, April 25th at the Lewes Surf Bagel at Five Points! That means we will receive 10% of total sales! Your office would probably love you for bringing Bagels on Tuesday! Did I mention they sell boxes of coffee too? By the way, they also freeze really well too!

The Surf Bagel in Lewes opens at 6:30am until 2:00pm.

Hope to see you there!

As a Delaware based nonprofits, we are thrilled to announce that we are participating in DoMore24 Delaware/ Delaware Gives, a statewide giving campaign March 2nd-3rd.


Preventing homelessness for families in Sussex County is made possible through donations from individuals like you. With fewer foundations, smaller grants and formerly localized investments now leaving the state, the impact you have is more important than ever.


Can you imagine what life would be like for families on the brink of homelessness if the work we do stopped tomorrow? The community you care about relies on your support to

  • Prevent families from becoming homeless

  • Provide resources to parents to achieve more stable employment

  • Help mitigate the potential effects of homelessness on children


But the future of the work we do is not at all assured.


We must do more! We must work together to ensure the continuation of the critical services that make Delaware safe, special, and sustainable for future generations.


For 24 hours from 6 p.m. March 2nd through 6 p.m. March 3rd we’re asking you to do more with us. Please give to Do More 24 Delaware. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram because over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing more about getting involved and what your help creates for the state.

During the week of October 17 – 23 Family Promise of Southern Delaware needs your help to raise awareness and funds for families experiencing homelessness through its Night Without a Bed campaign.  As part of Family Promise Week 2022 we will be posting to Facebook and Instagram daily to draw attention to the reality of families experiencing homelessness face.  


The campaign ends with a sleep-out event - A Night Without A Bed - at the Lightship Overfalls at Lewes Canalfront Park on October 21, 2021. 

At the event teens and their chaperones from local youth and church groups will sleep outside in tents near the Overfalls Lightship in Lewes in order to simulate the experience of being homeless. In the run-up to the event, participants will challenge friends, neighbors, and family members to contribute financially to Family Promise of Southern Delaware at our Fundraiser Page.

You are encouraged to join us to make this a success.  Here’s how:


  1. Join us and our overnight campers at the Overfalls the on the evening of October 21 starting at 6:00 PM to show your concern for families experiencing homelessness and learn what Family Promise is doing. Lewes Mayor Andrew William will make opening NWAB kick-off remarks at 6:45 PM.

  2. Plan to spend a Night Without a Bed yourself.  Maybe sleep in your car, on the sofa, or a tent in your backyard. On the day of the event everyone is encouraged to share photos on social media showing how you will spend Night Without a Bed!
