Pathways to Hope

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. 

At this time, we are unable to accept applications. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but we are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please send questions to or click on the partner agencies listed below for more information on the services they offer. We appreciate your understanding. 

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.


On April 16, 2020, the Delaware County Commissioners approved an initial grant of $89,000 to the United Way of Delaware County’s COVID-19 Community Response Fund, to provide financial assistance to eligible county residents. The financial assistance is a reallocation of Community Development Block Grant funds and will be earmarked specifically for rent/mortgage and utility needs up to $1,500 per household.

The Pathways to Hope program will be managed by the United Way of Delaware County and administered by the FRC and the Andrews House. The FRC will assess initial eligibility based on criteria identified in this plan with households who apply on-line or by phone.

Additional staff will be provided by United Way of Delaware County as needed to support application and verification process. The Andrews House serves as the fiscal agent for Pathways to Hope and will issue all approved payments directly to the vendor.
