PROGRAM 1
Hospitality Network
Since 2009, this has been our core program. Up to 4 families at a time receive needed temporary shelter. We partner with 40+ congregations that provide families with this lodging and hospitality in their houses of worship. Our 1,500+ volunteers cook, host activities for families, shop for groceries, and prepare rooms for families to sleep in. During the day, our full-time case management staff provides support and helps them quickly move into housing.
Programs
PROGRAM 1
Pathway to Career
We offset housing costs while a parent is in an educational program. We can cover career-related expenses like uniforms and background checks. Mentors and tutors may help parents prepare for licensure exams.
PROGRAM 2
Pathway to Housing
Through our Pathway to Housing, we assist families in other situations of homelessness, such as those in shelters or motels. We provide case management and financial assistance to families so they can secure housing. Our staff connects families to employment opportunities, financial coaching, health and mental health resources, and support for children.
PROGRAM 3
Pathway to Diversion
Our Pathway to Diversion is the first and only program of its kind in Delaware (as of 2018). This unique initiative helps families get back into stable housing by not relying solely on the shelter system. Not only is this more cost-effective, it allows families to avoid the trauma of the shelter system and regain independence faster. This program is now being replicated statewide.
PROGRAM 4
Hospitality Center
Each year, hundreds of families experience homelessness in Delaware. The number one reason why families cannot access shelter is because of their size or composition. We’re expanding to help meet this urgent need. Our Hospitality Center, scheduled to open in 2018, will provide needed temporary shelter to six families at a time, or 150+ children and their parents each year. It will operate alongside our existing Hospitality Network. Volunteers from new congregations, civic associations, and corporate partners will provide meals and hospitality to families in the Hospitality Center.
PROGRAM 5
Pathway to Independence
Families in all of our programs may receive supportive services including furniture donations, bus passes or other transportation assistance, diapers and other needs for their children. These resources and other services may be available to families after they exit our programs even up to one year.
PROGRAM 6
Pathway to Career
We offset housing costs while a parent is in an educational program. We can cover career-related expenses like uniforms and background checks. Mentors and tutors may help parents prepare for licensure exams.
