Shelter for the homeless is available in December and through the winter thanks to the Code Purple Sussex County program.
Overseers of the shelter network, Love Incorporated of Mid-Delmarva, have also obtained permission to utilize the former Delaware State Police Troop 7 building on Route 1 near Lewes as a shelter. Several other facilities are available.
The homeless hotline for Code Purple Sussex County is 302-519-0024.
Volunteers are still needed to help at the shelters. If you missed the training sessions – they can send you all the training materials and someone will be there to help you through your first time helping. Please go to https://codepurplesussexcounty.com/volunteers/ to fill out an online volunteer form.
Code Purple has taken precautions to follow COVID-19 restrictions, and beds for a night in Sussex County must be reserved.
