Non-profit unveils project to help the homeless in Sussex County

MILTON, Del – In Milton, a local non-profit organization has launched a project that’s looking to offer transitional housing and service for the homeless in Sussex County. Recently, the Tap Faith Partnerships organization announced their newest community project. In an effort to help end homelessness in the county, officials are looking for 10 to 20 acres of land to build a community main house. This facility will offer a number of programs including a life skills program to help people with job searches, as well as a recovery program that teaches self-management and recovery training for drug users.

“I hope that they see that it’s better to take care of people that are vulnerable rather than just letting them live behind Walmart in the woods. We have to do better. We’re trying to upgrade that experience so they can take a shower, they can get fresh clothes, and they can go out and and apply for work or maintain a job,” said Tap Faith Partnerships activist Jim Martin.

The project is still in the early stages, but officials tell us they’ll be presenting their proposal to Sussex County’s planning and zoning committee within the next couple of months.
