The Delaware Association of Realtors® is committed to consumers and to communities.
The strength of that commitment is demonstrated time again through member volunteer activities and financial support. Many members offer strong support to a variety of civic and charitable organizations in Delaware, and DAR officially supports the organizations featured below.
The Delaware Housing Opportunity Fund, Inc. (DEHOFI) provides essential and emergency home repairs for seniors and the disabled. Depending on funds raised, needed repairs to homes of seniors and disabled veterans can be done right away. Find out about DEHOFI in this video.
Since 2011, DEHOFI has provided grant funding for 17 low-income, first-time buyers; accessed more than $16,000 to enable a local partner organization to provide financial counseling to more than 500 individuals and families; funded essential repairs (roofs, heaters, access steps, mold removal, etc.) for 56 income-qualified individuals or families; and made a parallel grant to a local agency that works to keep low income seniors in their homes. More than $165,000 has been raised since 2010, with 96 percent used for direct services or improvements to grantees.

The mission of this nonprofit agency is to prevent and end homelessness for families. At its core is the Rotational Hospitality Network where families are guests of members and receive hospitality, mentoring, financial literacy counseling, and assistance to secure housing. Programs include Shelter Diversion (taking families from homeless to housed and bypassing the shelter system) and Rapid Rehoming for families already in community shelter programs. More than 80 percent of families secure housing in less than 60 days, and more than 90 percent remain housed after one year. Contact Family Promist at familypromisede.org or call (302)998-2222.
In Delaware, 30,000 youths are served across the state at 44 club sites. Clubs provide quality programs focusing on educational enhancement, physical education, and character building for a low annual membership fee of $15 per child.

Ronald McDonald House of Delaware
The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware provides a safe, affordable “home-away-from-home” to families of seriously or chronically ill or injured children who are being treated at Wilmington area hospitals. Families who stay at the House
travel 25 miles or more to access the medical care their children require. The House allows them to stay together and close to their child in the hospital. Families are provided the comforts of home in a supportive environment, a hot evening meal after a long day at the hospital, transportation to and from their child’s hospital, and a peaceful place to be together and among other families in similar situations. The House has 56,000 square feet of living space with 50 guest rooms, each with a private bathroom. Staff and volunteers welcome families and visitors from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. There is no cost to families to stay at the House. A $15 contribution is requested, but is not required and is often reduced or waived.
The Ronald McDonald House also operates three Family Rooms at Bayhealth/Kent General Hospital, Christiana Hospital and Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Family Rooms provide a respite space away from the child’s hospital bedside.

REALTORS® Relief Foundation
This charitable foundation is dedicated to providing housing-related assistance to victims of disasters. The impact these efforts have had on communities throughout the nation is monumental.
NAR first launched the REALTORS® Relief Foundation (RRF) as the REALTORS® Relief Fund in 2001 within hours of the devastating Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. More than $8.4 million was raised to provide assistance so that surviving family members could stay in their homes. Since then, more than $25 million has been raised for victims of disasters including wildfires, tornadoes, floods and hurricanes. Today, RRF exists as a 501(c)(3) organization established to provide housing-related assistance to victims of disasters and for other charitable purposes permitted under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
