FYI Stories

Spencer to reopen Saturday

Following a Friday afternoon fire, the University of Delaware's Spencer Laboratory will reopen at 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 30, with the exception of Suites 131 and 133, which will be closed until further notice.

App for safety

UD now has a smartphone safety app that helps prevent crime and enables police better respond to incidents, making students even safer while at school.

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.

For more information about Homeward Bound Emmaus House Family Shelter please see http://www.homewardbound.org/.
