Spread the word and join us on April 28, 2022 for our Giving Day! Many families are just one paycheck away from experiencing homelessness, and the pandemic has only increased the number of people at risk of losing their homes. That's why we're hosting our annual Giving Day to raise awareness and support for families battling homelessness.



"When people in our neighborhoods are facing homelessness, it affects the entire community. Our support will help provide people-in-need with the foundation for a better life. At Grange, our goal is to help strengthen the community by enabling nonprofits, like Family Promise of Delaware County, to provide immediate assistance where it matters most. We’re proud to support the tremendous efforts of Family Promise and their dedication to serving individuals and families in need." -Doreen DeLaney Crawley, Grange Insurance, Chief Operations Officer

We want to thank our sponsor, Grange, whose support ensures that 100% of proceeds goes directly towards Family Promise programs.

This year, to show your support, we're asking you to "Give an Hour." Spend 60 minutes as a Family Promise volunteer, donate an hour's worth of your salary, or take an hour to raise awareness of the crisis of family homelessness.


Also, starting on April 28th, for FOUR DAYS ONLY, we will be hosting an ONLINE AUCTION to benefit Family Promise programs. The auction site will be live in a few short days! Get ready to bid on some wonderful items all starting on Thursday, April 28th!

"I’m so thankful for this special opportunity to help at Family Promise during the last two months of this pandemic. Although a school librarian, a background in public health education and social work connected me via the Delaware Medical Reserve Corps. It’s been such a blessing to meet and work alongside such a dedicated staff and so many persevering and loving families. I’ve experienced a happy mix of reinforcing recommended health measures with reading to children and sharing experiences with parents, checking for temperatures and symptoms with planting seedlings and picking up lunches, delivering items to alumni and making Mothers day cards with communicating the latest facts about the virus and resources our state has made available.

While my regular job responsibilities have now resumed, I will surely continue to be a Family Promise friend. I’m hoping this essential service to Delaware county stays open and healthy, and look forward to hearing who else is able to step in and help support staff and residents at this remarkable house of love. God is able to do abundantly and exceedingly more than we even think to ask for!

Gwyn, Tonia, Sandy, Stephanie (and Betty and Kris who I did not have the privilege of meeting in person) you each have my utmost respect and affection...and the beautiful families, too, of course!"
