Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Delaware recently awarded Family Promise of Northern New Castle County, Inc. with a grant from BluePrints for the Community. BluePrints for the Community, housed by the Delaware Community Foundation, has contributed over $17 million to the community since its inception in 2007. It was established to serve Delawareans, with emphasis on, but not limited to, the needs of the uninsured and underserved, and to reduce health care disparities in minority population and address social determinants of health.


The specific grant awarded to Family Promise NNCC is designed to help our organization tackle mental health/behavioral challenges faced by families experiencing homelessness. Mental health/behavioral issues, already a substantial challenge in normal times, have been greatly exacerbated by the pandemic. This grant will help us better tailor our services to families facing a mental health/behavioral issue.

Diversity is integral to our mission at Family Promise. It’s our goal to coordinate the compassion of our community to assist families experiencing homelessness obtain permanent housing. Compassion and the desire to make a positive transformative change within our community is in all of us, regardless of our backgrounds. We’re so fortunate to be in a position to coordinate such diverse groups of volunteers, supporters, and community partners. We may all come from different backgrounds, faiths, and experiences, but the driving force that unites us, is our mission to prevent and end homelessness for families. The diversity that comprises Family Promise is something we cherish, and one of the driving forces of our success.


Respectfully,


Cheryl Christiansen

Executive Director
