We want to thank you for your support of the Community Resource Center and your participation in helping families in need. We are all challenged by the lingering pandemic, but the people we serve are particularly vulnerable right now. For these families, the persistent economic impact of lost income will translate to spikes in poverty and homelessness, missed meals for children, and increased uncertainty and instability. The Community Resource Center has been a safety net for individuals and families who are barely living on the edge. We have provided food so that no one goes hungry. We have provided financial assistance to prevent homelessness and utility disconnections. We continue our work to create the bridge that helps our neighbors get on the path to financial stability and self-sufficiency.

The Community Resource Center (CRC), a 501 (c)(3) organization, was created in 2011 to assist low-income individuals and families in times of need. The CRC has helped thousands of our eastern Sussex County community members to prevent eviction and utility interruption, fed the hungry, paid for medications for the elderly, and ensured that infants and children have access to the basic needs to help them thrive.

Won’t you please help us help others? We invite you to partner with the CRC to create change that will have a meaningful impact in our community. Together, we can create a community of caring and truly make a difference!

About Community Resource Center

Mission: With dignity and respect, the Community Resource Center helps individuals and families get to the next step of their journey towards self-sufficiency and stability.

The Community Resource Center (CRC), a 501(c)(3), volunteer-driven organization, was created in 2011 to assist low income individuals and families in times of need. The people we serve are particularly vulnerable right now. For these families, the economic impact of lost income will translate to spikes in poverty and homelessness, missed meals for children, and increased uncertainty and instability. 

With dignity and respect, the Community Resource Center helps individuals and families get to the next step of their journey towards self-sufficiency and stability. Last year, the CRC provided over $500,000 in financial assistance to keep families in their homes by preventing eviction and utility disconnection; helped nearly 1,000 children by providing them with diapers, food, clothing and books; and prevented hunger by giving away over 2,000 bags of groceries each month. We are proud that CRC continued to provide food and assistance to families in need without interruption throughout the pandemic.  Your support this year will go a long way in helping our neighbors in need !

The center is located at 37510 Oyster House Road in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and is staffed by over 70 highly trained volunteers whose tireless efforts work to make our Mission a success. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 10 am until 4 pm. Our Food Rescue and Baby Pantry programs are always grateful to receive donated items. For more information, please call (302) 227-1340.
