Susan A. Frank, DSHA director ,announced last week that the five recipients will share a pot of $59,000 awarded under the feder- al Emergency Shelter Grants Pro- gram. 'The homeless are the hardest- to-serve population," said Frank. "With 30 percent of Delaware's homeless located throughout the Kent and Sussex counties, these agencies need our help. Through today's grants, more homeless families will have a roof over their heads and access to services geared to helping them secure more stable housing and break the cycle of homelessness." The following awards were made: Philadelphia Pentecostal Holi- ness Church, Ellendale, $25,000 to conduct housing rehabilitation activities and to assist with opera- tional costs at its seven-bed emer- gency shelter for homeless fami- lies and individuals. Sussex Community Crisis Housing Services Inc., George- town, $10,000 to offset the cost of providing case management ser- vices to families. People's Place II, Milford, $9,200 to finance emergency rental and utility payment assis- tance and to provide case manage- ment services to prevent the homelessness of families. Casa San Francisco, Milton, $8,500 to provide emergency rental and utility payment assis- tance services to families and in- dividuals. Home of the Brave Founda- tion, Milford, $6300 to provide operating capital for its emer- gency shelter that primarily serves homeless veterans. DSHA administers this federal program in Kent and Sussex coun- ties. Since the Emergency Shelter Grants Program first became ac- cessible through the U.S. Depart- ment of Housing & Urban Devel- opmeni in 1987, DSHA has awarded more than $360,000 to assist, improve or expand the ser- vices provided by Delaware shel- ters and homeless service providers. Agencies awarded funding are obligated to provide shelter or ser- vices to the homeless for at least 10 years.
