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!
