Stand By Me
Stand By Me® is a coalition of community partners led by the State of Delaware and United Way of Delaware.
Launched in 2011 in New Castle County, the organization now offers services statewide. Our mission is to provide Delawareans with a personal financial coach and a toolkit to navigate the challenges leading to personal financial security.
Project THRIVE was created by the Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) to provide free mental health services to eligible Delaware students. Services are available to students – grades pre-k through 12 – attending Delaware public schools, private schools, parochial schools, and homeschools. Project THRIVE services help students struggling with traumatic situations, such as physical or emotional abuse, community violence, racism, bullying, and more. Trauma can harm mental and physical health and limit school success.
Delaware Afterschool Network
The Delaware Afterschool Network (DEAN) endorses the goal that all school-age children be academically, socially, culturally, and physically healthy. DEAN, along with its partners, works to create a long-term policy voice for afterschool programs; advocates for policies that support high-quality programs; supports the afterschool workforce; increases public awareness regarding afterschool programs; builds bridges between schools and community-based organizations, and supports family-centered practices.
