"As evictions increase nationwide, more attention has focused on equity concerns and protections for tenants in the court eviction process.

Eviction rates are particularly high in Delaware. The Princeton Eviction Lab estimates the state’s eviction rate (evictions per renter household) to be 5.1%, about 2 points higher than the national average, and the state’s annual eviction filing rate (eviction filings per renter household) to be 16%. On an average day, 14 evictions are filed in Delaware courts".

On June 20, 2020, Family Promise is hosting a social media challenge to raise awareness for families experiencing homelessness. To participate in the Night Without a Bed, all you have to do is sleep anywhere without a bed on the night of June 20. While doing so, post a video blog or photo using the hashtag #NightWithoutABed to share your experience.

You can pitch a tent in your backyard, sleep under the stars, or even create a living room fort! The choice is yours!
