What We Plan to Do

Family Promise of Southern Delaware will help local communities coordinate their compassion to address the root causes of family homelessness. Our vision is to address the issue holistically, providing prevention services before families reach crisis, shelter and case management when they become homeless, and stabilization programs once they have secured housing to ensure they remain independent. We tap existing local resources to empower families towards economic stability. Families come to us in crisis; we help them rebuild their lives with new skills and ongoing support.

Prevention

Preventing families from becoming homeless in the first place with Shelter Diversion, Rental Assistance and Transportation programs.

Emergency Shelter

This is where we start. The rotational shelter program and warm hospitality is the foundation of the Family Promise model. 

Community Initiative

As we become more established in the community we intend to further meet the needs of vulnerable families. Leveraging Family Promise's nationwide experience, we'll offer innovative programs – such as tenancy preparation, financial literacy, and virtual career pathway training - to address them in a cost-effective, targeted approach.
