Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Mission of Family Promise of Delaware County is to minister to the needs of low-income, homeless children and their parents by providing temporary housing, meals, transportation and other physical needs through a network of committed congregations throughout Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
The Network provides case management services to guide program participants in their quest to establish independent living.
Family Promise of Delaware County, formerly Interfaith Hospitality Network is a 24 hour, 7 days a week, 365 days per year service providing temporary accommodations for 3-4 homeless families at a time. We serve as an alternate to the shelter system, which often has families living apart. Families within the network work to resolve their homelessness by achieving stable income, housing and childcare.
Family Promise of Delaware County is affilitated with National Family Promise. We are one of 187 Family Promise affiliates located throughout 47 states. There are over 130,000 volunteers and over 5,500 congregations that participate in the shelter program. We also celebrate a significant success rate; nationally, more than 80% of the families leave the program with permanent housing.
Delaware County IHN services families with children without regard to race, religion, or age. Families may stay in the program up to 120 days providing they are adhering to guest guidelines and making progress in their efforts towards self-sufficiency.
