What We Do
Family Promise of Northern New Castle County helps local communities coordinate their compassion to address the root causes of family homelessness. We address the issue holistically, providing diversion services to divert families from shelter altogether, 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.
Pathway to Diversion
Our Diversion Program works with families in our community who are at risk of needing shelter – We work with them to assist them secure housing in 7-14 days to ensure they can avoid shelter altogether.
Helping the families we serve not only succeed today but remain stable in their housing, financial capability and career paths tomorrow. We ensure every family we serve has the tools and resources necessary to live independently. It is our goal to ensure families remain housed after program exit.
