Community Program of the Year, 2016

Family Promise of Delaware County provides a beacon of hope for homeless families, as the population continues to rise.  As a single mom, I understand the struggles that many families go though and one illness or situation where a family loses wages can be the catalyst that causes a family to lose their stability.

FPDelco helps families regain their independence with support and fellowship from local communities, while keeping their dignity intact.  

The volunteers are the beating heart of the organization.  Their dedication and support is an inspiration to us all.
