Casa San Francisco, located in Milton, Delaware, provides a wide range of services aimed at helping low-income residents of Sussex County.


Emergency Shelter

We provide housing and three daily meals for up to 12 adults for a maximum of 30 days. A case manager works with each resident to obtain income and locate affordable housing opportunities. We also help with medications, laundry, clothing, and transportation.

If you are in need of shelter, call the Delaware Helpline at 211.

Food Cooperative

The Food Cooperative helps families and individuals stretch their limited incomes by providing a supplemental bag of groceries, nutrition and budgeting information once every month. With the help of the Food Bank of Delaware, club members receive nutritious, meal-ready products for a fraction of retail value.

Currently, distribution sites are located in Milton, Georgetown, Lewes, Slaughter Neck, Long Neck, Bridgeville, Roxanna, Dover and Princess Anne.
