Hope Center CCHS

The Hope Center (formerly the Sheraton Wilmington) is an emergency, non-congregate shelter opened to protect individuals and families from COVID-19. Guests receive meals, transportation, COVID testing, health services, and case management on-site. Each household placed at the Hope Center has their own room. Referrals to the Hope Center are through Delaware’s Homeless System, where people can contact 1-833-FIND-BED, and if no shelter beds are available, they are referred to the state of Delaware’s Division of State Service Center for emergency hotel placement.
