Hope Center Receives $750K Federal Appropriation for Capital Improvements

The Hope Center in New Castle County will receive $750,000 appropriated by Congress for capital improvements. The critical improvement to the Hope Center will be a new roof. 

The federal funding is part of $97 million investment in Delaware projects. The full appropriations will go to community priorities such as water infrastructure improvements, mental health support, childcare services, affordable housing, education and research, workforce development, and more up and down the First State.

The Hope Center recently had its second year of service to the people experiencing homelessness of Delaware. Since opening the doors of the Hope Center in December 2020, The Hope Center has gone on to serve more than 685 families (over 2,000 individuals), and been the temporary residence to those displaced from Adams Street in Wilmington, from Hurricane Ida, the war in Ukraine, and Afghanistan. More than 200 Delawareans have moved into permanent housing.
