HFM provides financial and food assistance to family and individuals.

Programs provided Statewide Security Deposit Loan Program, Statewide Re-entry Program, and Food Closet

Security Deposit (Delaware residents only)

The Statewide Security Deposit Loan Program has provided help for low to moderate income to families and individuals since 1993. The demographic struggles to afford security deposit, first month rent, utility deposit, and moving expenses. The assistance can be used for unit and utility deposit.

The security deposit program has loaned over $2,3000.000 to over 800 families and individuals. The program provides low interest loans and case management.

Re-entry Program (Delaware residents only)

The Statewide Re-entry Program is a new program that provides rent assistance (up to 8 weeks) for individuals that have exited the prison system to help them to get back into the community. They must be in a program with case management.

Food Closet (Delaware residents only)

The food closet provides meals to families and individuals with three meals for five days for each household. All they need to do is call to make an appointment and have a valid Delaware ID or license.
