UD and United Way
Still time to donate to UD's United Way Campaign
2:15 p.m., Nov. 15, 2013--Help the University of Delaware reach its United Way goal of $185,000 by donating today. There is only one week remaining in the campaign.
The United Way of Delaware partners with more than 100 agencies throughout the state, making a difference in our community and the lives of our neighbors.
One of the agencies helping families in the city of Newark is the Homeward Bound Shelter.
Homeward Bound Emmaus House Family Shelter and Services is a private nonprofit agency dedicated to serving families in crisis with effective and responsive programs and services. The agency provides emergency shelter in a house in Newark, and this service is provided for up to four families for 30 days. Services include a violence support group, a brown bag club, a transitional housing program and life skills training.
While children are doing their homework with volunteers, parents are able to improve their own life skills to help better themselves and their families. Topics include parenting classes, employment readiness and money management.
