Our Big Announcement

Last year, we gave clothing to over 5,900 people, supported over 3,500 students with school uniform items, and employed 15 women through our Creating Excellent Outcomes (CEO) job and life-skills training program. We did this with the help of over 400 volunteers. It was an amazing year and what this has taught us is we have reached our capacity while requests for our services are increasing.
We are so excited to share that we have purchased the warehouse unit next door to our Clothing Bank! Our Clothing Bank now has doubled in size. We will be able to serve more people, host more volunteers, and hire more women who are justice involved.
We invite you to visit our new space! Stop by to say hi, volunteer with us, or drop off new or gently used clothing donations. 
If you’re interested in financially supporting the new space, please consider a donation today. To make a donation, please visit us online at friendshiphousede.org. We’re so grateful for your support in helping Delawareans find a way home!

  • What donations in household items would the Friendship House consider? In good clean condition of course, as we have a good number of rugs and blankets and towels we are not using.
    Clean small good condition rugs, bath towels in fair shape, and good condition fleece and other blankets.

  • Hi Katherine,
    Thanks for leaving a comment! We’ll reach out to you directly to answer your question, thanks.

  • I just wanted to recognize Kristen R. of the Friendship House team for her efforts in leading fundraising teams for Greater Wilmington’s Highmark Walk (BCBS/United Health).

    The Highmark Leadership team (including community medical outreach and CEO) from Pittsburgh, PA, were on hand to kick off the event; which included the Friendship House team & Friendship Team volunteers at an event table.

    From what was shared live with participants and the media by Highmark, Saturday’s event was one of many planned walks throughout DE and PA that shared compassion and kindness to more than 180 nonprofit organizations (including Friendship House). Please refer to Highmark’s Foundation website for further info.

    Best- Christine “Anna” Wright
