Dear Friend,


Thank you! Through yours and other Delawarean’s generosity First State Community Action Agency (FSCAA) has offered a helping hand to those in need for over 58 years. FSCAA is committed to addressing the root causes of poverty through our many programs and services throughout the state. Once again, we are asking for your help and support. Please make an end of the year donation to FSCAA so we may continue to serve the 11,632 vulnerable Delawareans who rely on us.


Your contribution will provide hope and opportunity to families struggling to keep a roof over their head, food on their table, and heat to stay warm. Join us in our goal to lift more Delawareans out of poverty. Your generous support provides children and adults with education, skills training, employment opportunities, crisis relief, secure housing, one-on-one counseling support and many other services. Your gift to First State is all it takes to keep hope blazing in their hearts.
