Asset Management & Real-estate Development

Interfaith Community Housing of Delaware, Inc. is the largest non-profit affordable housing/real-estate developer and homeownership organization in Delaware. ICHDE has developed housing projects since its founding beginning in New Castle County then expanding to Kent and Sussex Counties. 

HomeOwnership Center

ICHDE’s Home Ownership Center (HOC) offers a comprehensive program in both English and Spanish, to assist Delaware’s homebuyers in reaching their goals. Our Home Ownership services emphasize knowledge and resources. We offer lecture style and hands-on activities – through the book “Road to Home Ownership” to introduce the various steps of the home-buying process. 

The HOC meets the needs through our programming that has helped hundreds of lower-income Delaware families realize their goals of affordable homeownership. Our HOC also identifies predatory lending, and increase in default, language barriers, the lack of formal financial education, and a lack of awareness of the homebuying process as barriers to successful homeownership.
