Now open & transforming the lives of twice as many children and their families.
After Yarelis and Alreise lost their jobs, they had to leave their apartment. But as a homeless family of four — husband, wife, and two children — it was hard for them to find a place where they could stay together.
They found refuge at Family Promise® NNCC. “I felt secure,” Yarelis said. “We didn’t feel overwhelmed anymore. We felt like a family there.” Within two months, they found jobs and an apartment, where they are today.
Sadly, not all children experiencing homelessness have this support. 18 kids in Delaware become homeless each day. Just one night of homelessness impacts a child academically and emotionally.
This is what makes Family Promise® NNCC unique. We keep families together when they experience homelessness, and we’re the most effective in the state.
The Hospitality Center is open as of November 2018!
This additional facility is helping us create twice the promise — we’re now able to prevent & end homelessness for twice as many families annually!
Our new Hospitality Center (right) will be just down the road from our current Day Center (left). We’re excited to be sharing this space with Jesus House Prayer and Renewal Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to providing a sacred space and programs for those seeking spiritual growth and community.
To make it successful, we need your support. Join us in our movement to end homelessness!
