Who We Are

Delaware Housing Opportunity Fund, Inc. was founded in 2005 by the leadership of the New Castle County Board of Realtors. Over the years, DE.HOFI has worked to serve hundreds of people throughout Delaware with the goal to expand, providing stability to all homeowners.

Homeownership is one of the best ways to empower people, it gives them a stake in their neighborhood. Through our efforts we enable our clients to stay committed to their community. The ensuing neighborhood stability improves physical conditions and increases property value.

Mission Statement

Delaware Housing Opportunity Fund, Inc. focuses on improving various communities by providing essential free home repairs for vulnerable seniors, veterans and families with low-income.

Welcome to Delaware Housing Opportunity Fund. Our mission is to help homeowners in our community stay in their homes and ensure that their homes are safe and sound. We help homeowners in need, with an emphasis on elderly aging in place and veterans. We are proud that we have helped so many people maintain their homeownership when their finances made it impossible to make necessary repairs.

Together with our supporters in the real estate community we are pleased to serve those in need. We have a strong belief that home ownership is key to the vibrancy of a healthy community. When we assist people, it allows them to safely stay in their homes, this truly benefits everyone.

When you contribute to the Delaware Housing Opportunity Fund your dollars directly help homeowners in need and the Delaware community.

Thank you for your continued support.
