Delaware low income and transitional housing programs.

Families facing imminent eviction in Delaware can get help from several transitional housing type assistance programs. Resources are also available for any resident that is currently homeless, and those are primarily shelters, which are available free of use for the homeless. The state and the non-profits that operate these services are committed to addressing a wide variety of housing issues that occur in the state, including preventing homelessness.

One of the main focuses of the programs is on ensuring that families gain self-sufficiency. So people who stay at the transitional housing units or short term apartments will often be required to attend case management, job training, and access other services. During their stay they may receive free meals, clothing, and other support is often available.

When someone is ready to leave a location, they get help in locating permanent housing in Delaware. Case managers may also be able to direct qualified applicants to financial assistance programs for paying expenses such as a security deposit or first months rent as well.
