Housing and Utility Assistance for Delaware County Residents

The Pathways to Hope fund assists with rent, mortgage and utility needs for qualifying Delaware County, Ohio Residents. The Pathways to Hope program is managed by the United Way of Delaware County in partnership with the Family Resource Center and the Andrews House. Assistance is provided based on the level of available funding. If funding is unavailable at the time of application, referrals to other organizations will be offered. 



  1. Complete the form with required documentation (please make sure you are using Chrome, FireFox, Edge, or IOS Safari as your internet browser).

  2. To be eligible, your total annual household income must be below $42,250 and your request must be COVID-19 related.

  3. If initial eligibility is met, an in-depth interview will be conducted with the household to verify and confirm documentation needed to process the application for assistance. New applicants will be contacted by their navigator for a consultation appointment at the Willis Education Center.

  4. All payments will be made directly to the vendor (landlord, utility company, etc).

Federal laws prohibit discrimination in housing and community development programs and activities because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status, and disability. These obligations extend to recipients of Pathways to Hope financial assistance, including subrecipients, as well as the operations of state and local governments and their agencies, and certain private organizations operating housing and community development services, programs, or activities.

Please note: We are in the middle of a funding transition and applications may take 6-8 weeks to process. 

“It has been a very stressful few months trying to figure out how to survive. I have spent more nights staring at the ceiling wondering what I was going to do. But the work you have done has given me hope again. I have not felt like there is at least the possibility of a bright future for a long time now. Being able to focus on my job search and taking care of my boys instead of worrying about living in a car has lifted a heavy burden from my shoulders.

I will never be able to fully express my gratitude. Someday soon I will tell my kids about all of this. I want them to know that there are people that care and are willing to help when all the chips are down. I know that I cannot pay you back right now, but I certainly want to try. I hope to be able to donate to your organization soon and volunteer when Covid comes to an end. But in the meantime, please know that you have absolutely changed my family's lives and we are very thankful.”
