Highmark Walk is less than 1 Month Away!
Saturday, June 11th, 2022

What is the Highmark Walk?
The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is an annual fundraising walk that benefits local health and human service agencies.
The primary goal of the walk is to help participating organizations raise money for their individual missions. One hundred percent of the funds raised through this event go directly back to the participating organizations, as Highmark underwrites all the associated costs of the event.

How do I sign up? By visiting our page -> Register To Walk! 

(Registration is free!)

Can I Form a Walk Team?
Yes! Form a team & walk with your friends, neighbors, congregants, etc.! This is a great opportunity to get outside and see some familiar faces we haven't seen in a while due to the pandemic. Take pictures, document your walk, and have fun!

Benefits of donating:
Register as a walker & Donate $30 = a walk t-shirt!

Want to Help Families in Real Time?

Are you a Family Promise advocate? Do you enjoy donating throughout the year? Do you wish you could help families with needs right as they arise? Then you should become a Family Helper!​

When a specific need arises for a family, you will be the first to hear from us via email or phone, to see if you are able to assist in the specific need. If you are unable to donate at that time, that is no problem, as we will have a handful of helpers.

These rolling needs arise on a family to family basis and could include such items as specific:

  • Sized adult clothing & shoes

  • Sized children clothing & shoes

  • Sized diapers

  • Household appliances

  • Kitchen tools

  • Bedding needs

Being a Family Helper means you are the first to hear from us on a random and rolling family by family basis.

Affordable Housing Crisis
Across Delaware, there is a shortage of rental homes that are affordable and available to extremely low-income households.

Data released Thursday by Housing Alliance Delaware says the state faces a shortage of more than 18,000 affordable and available rental homes for extremely low-income renters.

An annual household income of $46,846 would be required to reasonably afford a two-bedroom rental home in Delaware according to the National Low Income Housing Coalition. The fair market rate for that home would be $1,071 per month, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

There are currently only 27 rental properties on Zillow in the entire state of Delaware for $1,071 per month or less. In 2019, 38% of Delaware households struggled to make ends meet, according to the United Way of Delaware.
