MEDIA- Edward T. Coleman, Chief Executive Officer, announced that the Community Action Agency of Delaware County, Inc. is once again partnering with the Delaware County Community Foundation through its Delco Sunshine Fund.
This fund is a national pilot project supported by Doris Buffet’s Sunshine Lady Foundation.
The Delco Sunshine Fund has granted CAADC $25,000 to support Delaware County residents who are experiencing, or who have recently experienced, serious financial, domestic, health or employment problems. Many recipients of the Delco Sunshine Fund are middle-class families who are typically not eligible for government-funded relief programs.
Types of support include assistance to avoid mortgage foreclosure, necessary medical bills not covered by public or private insurance, and costs associated with recovering from an accident or natural disaster.
If significant credit card debt is an issue, consultation with an accredited consumer counseling service is required before a grant is made.
Residents interested in applying for assistance can contact Danita Miller at CAADC at (610) 874-8451.
