2024 An Evening with Friendship House

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our 2024 Evening with Friendship House event! We enjoyed seeing everyone and spending the evening with you all. Thank you to the businesses, organizations, and individuals who donated items to our silent auction or sponsored the event.

During our program, we celebrated our 2023 accomplishments including the expansion of our Transitional Housing program with the purchase of a house for women employed at our Clothing Bank, offering fully accessible Wilmington Code Purple emergency overnight shelter with the help of our community, and investing $330,000 in our Financial Assistance program helping 2,800 people secure housing or employment. We looked forward to 2024 and shared our goals. We’re excited to focus on fully expanding our Clothing Bank & Empowerment Center programs into Sussex County, being a part of the solution of decreasing youth homelessness in Delaware, and providing Transitional Housing for LGBTQ+ people. In addition, Valerie, a current resident of our Transitional Housing program, shared, “The staff at FH, have supported, encouraged, and guided me down a path nothing short of miraculous,” when talking about the impact FH has had on her. During the evening, we released our 2023 Annual Report which you can view here!
