``And if you draw out your soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall your light rise in obscurity, and your darkness be as the noon day:`` - Isaiah 58:10

Homelessness is a form of physical suppression that needs physical, financial and spiritual attentions. Homelessness is unacceptable, and it is a challenge that together we can solve in Delaware, and across the United States.

Every night in the great state of Delaware 1,000 people are homeless, sleeping on streets, in cars, in parks, abandoned buildings and emergency shelters. One of every four people experiencing homelessness is a single mother with children who in most cases lost her income and facing financial difficulties in paying for rent. Approximately 3,000 people will experience homelessness in Delaware throughout 2018.

Delano King Foundation is committed to working in collaboration with other partners and stakeholders to help end homelessness in Delaware and across the U.S. While many families in our communities will face housing crises due to illness, domestic violence, unemployment and other economic hardships, we should not accept homelessness as final answer, because the greatness of Delaware will be measured by how the most vulnerable members in our communities are treated. We can and must do better!

Delano King Foundation goal is to help Shelter the homeless Through:

Financial Education

Financial hardship is one of the primary causes of homelessness in Delaware, and across the United States. Seven out of ten Americans are one paycheck away from being homeless. More than half of Americans have no emergency savings for raining days, and this is a real and serious problems.

We collaborate with the best and largest financial institution in North America to help provide financial education in our communities. We believe having a clear understanding on personal finances such as – Individual Retirement Account (IRA), Mutual Funds, College Investment, Debt Elimination and Emergency Saving will prevent most American families from being homeless.

Emergency Shelters

Our Emergency Shelter will serve families who are facing housing crises due to illness, domestic violence, unemployment and economic hardships. To prevent the loss of existing housing or quickly re-house an already homeless household, qualify individuals and families will receive financial assistance to avoid eviction or in some cases, move them into a new residence.

Spiritual Empowerment

I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?” – Psalm 42:9

Oppression is a state of captivity in which you rely on your enemy for survival. It is the foundation for difficulties, frustrations, hardships and unbearable sufferings. When oppression comes upon a man, he become another creature. He cannot regulate or control his affairs anymore because a power stronger than him is now in place. Oppression is not only experienced physically, it could be psychological, financial, marital, educational and importantly spiritual.

Oppression also means to be under a very hard yoke and a heavy burden. Jesus Christ says, “Come unto me all you whose yokes are hard, and your burdens are heavy, and I will give you rest. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light”. We believe together we can solve homelessness in Delaware and across the United States by firstly seeking the Kingdom of God and all other things will be added unto us.

Give The Gift of hope. You can help restore hope to the hopeless.
