“For 137 years, West End has provided a ‘hand up’ to help Delawareans reach and maintain self-sufficiency. Our 137th year of service coincides with the 20th anniversary of our Life Lines program, which provides housing, education, and employment training to former youth in and emancipated from foster care. While both occasions are cause for celebration, they also represent an opportunity to satisfy the unmet needs of youth who are homeless; improve job training opportunities for underprivileged young people; expand production at our Bright Spot urban farm; and ensure that our facilities remain safe and sustainable in perpetuity. Such improvements will allow West End to continue housing, educating, and training those individuals seeking to achieve self-sufficiency. ”
