The NCC Housing Everyone Locator Program (NCC HELP) is a new initiative to help homeless families in our area as well as clients of the Housing Choice Voucher Program find affordable housing in New Castle County. Made possible by a grant from Home4Good, NCC HELP will partner with property owners and managers, as well as providers of support services, to help our clients find rapid access to safe, affordable housing.
NCC HELP is founded on the "Housing First" model, which centers stable, permanent housing as essential to insecurely housed families being able to get the help they need to live decently and to recover from trauma they may have suffered. NCC HELP is also part of a network of social service providers that uses the Case Management Information System (CMIS) overseen in DE by Housing Alliance Delaware to offer comprehensive, wrap-around services for those facing homelessness.
This page (like the program) is still a work in progress. However, we’ll soon introduce our NCC HELP Coordinator and provide more details on the process and how property owners and managers can reach out to us, as we will definitely be reaching out to them. We’ll also collect links to other resources for folks facing homelessness and other vulnerable situations.
