At 6:05 p.m. on Thursday, April 4th 1968, Martin Luther King was shot dead while standing on a balcony outside his second-floor room at the Lorraine Motel. Up until then he was a Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesman and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968.

The Wilmington Protests of 1968 occurred in Wilmington, Delaware, in April of that year following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Although the racial tensions in the city of Wilmington may have subsided the governor refused to recall the Delaware Army National Guard, leaving them in the city as an occupying force until the following year. This resulted in an emotional public response and thus becoming, the longest occupation of an American city to date. #blackhistory #newcastlecounty #wilmingtondelaware #habitatforhumanity #habitatncc #knowushistory
Last week, Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County and Sussex County Habitat for Humanity joined more than 500 advocates at #HabitatontheHill to promote policies that build a more equitable future for low-income families through homeownership. We had a spirited and productive discussion with @SenatorChristopherC***s and staff as we shared New Castle County and Sussex County HFH priorities, programs, and funding needs. Thank you Senator C***s for your time! #CostofHome #grateful #habitatforhumanity #newcastlecounty #future #equity
This week we have an extra special #WorkingWomenWednesday post! Not only is this hard working woman winning medals at the Winter Olympics, she is also making #BlackHistory.

Erin Jackson is the first Black woman to win a speedskating medal at the Winter Olympics!

Jackson only started speed skating in 2017, according to her Olympic bio. She had tried inline skating when she was 10, "inspired by all of the inlines who have come before her" and then made the transition to ice. Fun facts about her: she can sleep anywhere, anytime, and ran track and field in high school.
This weeks #staffhighlight will focus all on our CEO Kevin Smith!

Kevin spoke with Lora Lewis on the Focus on The Delaware Valley podcast at WJBR.

He spoke about our mission, building affordable housing, providing 0% interest mortgages to hard-working qualified homeowners, and thereby revitalizing neighborhoods and empowering the families.

You can listen to this podcast by clicking the link in our BIO. There you will here more about our opportunities for you to get involved.

The reason we are able to continue to do the work that we do is through all your support.

We do this to create a better future! Visit us at habitatncc.org to learn more.

Last year’s virtual legislative conference welcomed more than 700 participants, with over half of the advocates joining us for the very first time. This years three day virtual conference, Habitat on the Hill, was held February 8-10, 2022.

The conference culminated impactful virtual meetings with members of Congress and their staff, where participants were able to advocate for federal policy solutions that advance home affordability. Building a more equitable future for families in every community has never been more important.
We are already a quarter of the way done with #BlackHistoryMonth. We never want it to end.

Ask yourself, how can allies help year round?

Our Top Five:
1. Always be learning, read, educate yourself
2. Never stop your mind from growing, allow yourself to think differently
3. Pay it forward and PAY UP $$$
4. Do advocacy in more ways than 1, be innovative
5. See every Black person as an individual
Both ReStores will be closed Saturday 1/29 due to the inclement weather. Be safe everyone and we hope to see you next week!

For this Friday's #DoGoodFriday we wanted to highlight a very special opportunity. Energize Delaware announced that the Empowerment Grant Program (EGP), funded by the Exelon Merger for Delmarva Power Customers in Delaware, is awarding a renewal grant of $300,000 to Habitat for Humanity of New Castle. Habitat for Humanity will use these grant funds continue a refrigerator replacement program which was originally funded $500,000 in 2020.

In the 2020 the Empowerment Grant provided funding to HFH of New Castle County, and working with their Central Delaware and Sussex County partner Habitat agencies at ReStore locations across the state on an innovative program to provide improved efficiency, reliability, and energy savings to Delaware income qualified residents. The highly successful program has removed 360 old inefficient refrigerators, recycled them and replaced them with highly efficient units. This statewide collaboration resulted in a savings of approximately 432,875 kWh over an 18-month period, while delivering an average of $127 in yearly savings for qualified Delmarva Customers.

Efforts will be on replacing 286 older inefficient refrigerators with ENERGY STAR Certified refrigerators. The program will run out of New Castle County ReStore locations. Additional emphasis will be made to coordinate the program with current restoration programs in the county and cross market the opportunity with other community non-profits, organizations and houses of faith.

“The refrigerator replacement program has proven to be one of the most impactful and successful programs funded by the Empowerment Grant”, said Jim Purcell, Grant Manager for the Empowerment Grant. Purcell also added, “the extension of this program, alignment with other potential energy savings programs will play a large part in helping to ease energy burden in our low-moderate income communities for years to come”.

This Sunday we want to highlight our AmeriCorps Volunteers. Their dediciation and hard work allowed us to move Lucinda into her new home in the Amala Way development.

The AmeriCorps NCCC team, known as River 6, is a specialty “Construction Team,” meaning they have been focused on construction related projects throughout their deployments and are gaining specialty construction skill to support their service.

They arrived in Wilmington on January 14, 2022 to support Habitat NCC’s efforts to build 12 townhomes on one block in Wilmington. They have supported building the foundation of multiple townhomes and doing framing, drywalling, siding, painting and other finishing touches on several homes.

This is the team’s third deployment. We truly couldn't have finished Amala Way development without you all. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Now Lucinda is at her Home Sweet Home.

Hi There Family and Friends. We want to use this time to introduce a very special volunteer of ours. We value all the hard work you do for us Richard :)

Everyone meet Richard Cornin!

Richard has 994 hours of volunteerism from Jan 2020 – Dec 2021

We asked Richard some questions so you can get to know him better.

What is your favorite part of volunteering? "People. Making new acquaintances and friends with both the donators, the customers, and the staff."

When did you join our volunteer team? About 3 years ago

Where did you start? ReStore(PC)

Why did you want to volunteer with HFH of New Castle County? "Judy chased me out the house... The Flexible hours mostly"

How did you find this opportunity? With the influence of his older brother Ted's volunteerism with an affiliate in Michigan, he was somebody he looked up to.

Would you recommend volunteering with Habitat to anyone else? "Absolutely! ReStore is way better than the bar scene. There is good lighting, sound system on the dock all I am missing is a wingman."

Who's signing up to Volunteer with Richard?!
