Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Neighborhood House is located in a financially disadvantaged area of Wilmington, Delaware. We have a second location in Middletown, DE.

The individuals we serve are under-employed or unemployed. They have experienced life circumstance sand financial hardships from which recovery is difficult if not impossible. However, they are resilient, hard-working, and motivated.

We strive to be a safety net for those who are experiencing a financial crisis, a supporter for those who are struggling daily, and a leader for those who want to improve life's circumstances for themselves and their children.

Through Family Services, Youth Programs, Housing Counseling and the Empowerment Center we can help people change their lives.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Housing Counseling: Provide comprehensive housing counseling including Pre-Purchase, Rental Assistance, Financial, and Foreclosure Intervention & Default Counseling. Basically we want to put people in homes and keep people in homes!

Family Services: Provide an emergency food closet, clothing, financial assistance/leveraging funds for utility bills, bus tickets for employment interviews and life skills workshops. We believe no one should have to worry about their basic needs and everyone should have the opportunity to learn basic skills to protect and empower their financial outlook!

Youth Services: Provide After –school programs with tutoring, education support and on-site wrap-around, a summer camp which combines summer reading and recreation, and a youth program which gives young adults an opportunity to stay off the streets in a structured environment. For us we want safe spaces for youth and young adults there they can learn, explore, create friendships and grow into the leaders of tomorrow!

Neighborhood Empowerment Center: Access to computers and internet services, a lending library, classes and more so that older youth and adults may set and achieve goals. We want to see every member of our community contributing to their full potential. We will remove barriers and empower change and growth!

Our main strategy is simple: We do provide support, but with that support comes the expectation that individuals become the guiding stars of their own lives. We will help them to achieve their goals, but we continuously encourage and motivate people to find the greatest support they will ever have in themselves.

With the support of amazing donors and foundations, as well as the leaders of Delaware, New Castle County, Wilmington and Middletown, we are able to help youth and adults to succeed in their life journey. Our staff is very experienced with the community, well versed in the services they offer and motivated to succeed in our mission. We have the stability of owning a three-story building in the Southbridge neighborhood of Wilmington. Our Board is dedicated and hands- on as we work to accomplish goals every day and plan for our future. Our community partnerships help us to bring added value to everything we do.

While we have strong programs, we are looking to make smart improvements i the services we offer. The Neighborhood Empowerment Center is new - an we will continue to offer dynamic programs there. We would like to continue to expand that center, increase empowerment activities for young adults in fun and innovative ways.
