Port Hope Delaware Contracting
Port Hope Delaware Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation registered in the State of Delaware. We are supported by people who have experienced homelessness or are currently experiencing homelessness and those who are and have been more traditionally housed.
Port Hope is now licensed as a contractor in the City of Dover to do basic home repair and remodeling to help create additional affordable housing opportunities through shared housing and micro apartments. We are looking to not only perform home repair and remodeling jobs for the community to raise funds for our ultimate goal of creating Tiny House Villages but we are also in search of opportunities to obtain blighted properties in disrepair to remodel and renovate into housing opportunities that Port Hope Delaware Inc. will manage as well.
To meet our ultimate goal, we are in search of land to erect Delaware's first Tiny House Village. Our goal is to create cooperatively run, self managed villages for folks to live in a sustainable way. In addition to providing a safe and supportive community we also envision raised bed gardens, a green house, solar and wind energy and many more environmentally friendly systems to help make the village as self supportive and self sustaining as possible. We welcome suggestions and hope to have discussions about what will work best from neighbors and the community.
As we begin this process
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
•Labor for Construction
We have begun our funding research and outreach efforts, however, community involvement and support have always been the backbone of our organization and our vision of creating self sustaining and truly affordable housing will depend deeply on the commitment that our community is willing to provide. The less the building of the houses and the purchase of the materials, equipment and supplies costs us the less it will ultimately costs those who seek truly affordable supportive permanent housing. All of our fund raising efforts and home remodeling and repair proceeds will be combined to create Delaware's first Tiny House Village of Truly Affordable Supportive Housing for those most in need in our community. The successful model that this will create will provide an example of how this innovative solution to the lack of affordable housing can meet the needs of so many in our community in search of answers to their housing crisis.
