CAADC is the primary provider of emergency housing to homeless families and individuals in Delaware County. To prevent the loss of existing housing or to quickly re-house an already homeless household, qualified Delaware County residents can receive financial assistance to avoid eviction or to move into a new residence.


To apply for financial assistance, please visit the CAADC office at 1414 Meetinghouse Road, Boothwyn, PA 19061 for an assessment. Assessments are conducted Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. No appointment needed. CAADC also has COVID-related funding to help with rent and utility assistance (different funding than the ERA program listed above).
