How Ugly is your Sweater?

Saturday, December 21, 2024 - 9:00am


Redemption City seeks to help people experiencing homelessness find shelter while providing comprehensive and holistic care. We are rooted in a deep conviction that every human being has incredible value, worth and dignity. We want to help restore that dignity. We strive to impart skills so they may thrive in life rather than simply housing and turning them back out to repeat the cycle.

What makes Redemption City different?

Focusing on job skills and a robust self-sufficiency plan, we feel that we will end the cycle of homelessness for our participants. We aim to be a shelter focused on community and hope to be a safe space for our participants. Our program places a high emphasis on personal responsibility and participation in multiple life enrichment classes, and this, coupled with connections to already established community resources that focus on mental health and well-being, will create an environment conducive to thriving as an individual.

Join the Seashore Striders & Redemption City for a fun winter 5k run & walk at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes.
