In times of need, the greatest challenge can be knowing where to turn for help.

Hardship doesn’t discriminate. It can happen to anyone. Regardless of age, race, income level, or zip code, we can all find ourselves in a crisis and in need of assistance.

When life throws us a curveball, it’s important to know that you don’t have to struggle alone. Support is available, and people are here to help.

Whether you’re looking for information or have an urgent need, our team at Delaware 211 is here to support you and your loved ones.

Delaware 211 serves people of all income levels and cultural backgrounds. Our LIVE Helpline is free, confidential, and connects you with the support you need (when you need it most).  Our team consists of Delaware-based resource specialists who care about helping their neighbors. They are experts in compassionately connecting people with health and human services resources across the state.

We know how difficult and overwhelming it can be when you’re searching for help, and you’re not sure where to go. I encourage you to reach out even if you just have questions. We’re here to assist you in whatever way we can to make it easier for you and your loved ones to get the help you need.

Your Neighbor,

Donna Snyder-White, Vice President of Financial Empowerment
