It all starts with you

Working together, we can reach thousands

For 50 years, People's Place has been helping people find their path to growth and independence. Thousands of lives have been changed, and we hope to continue our work through the next 50 years and beyond. But, we did not and cannot help them alone.

Without your support and the support of Delaware communities, we could not have touched so many who now have their own success stories. Working together, we can reach thousands more who will transform themselves, their communities, and the State of Delaware for the better.

Help us continue to help people find their path to growth and independence. It all starts with you!
