Since 1986, Supportive Transitional and Emergency Housing Ministry
(STEHM) has been serving the Wilmington, Delaware area by offering two
housing solutions for individuals requiring shelter in an emergency
situation or as part of a longer-term transition to independent housing.
The Motel Ministry provides short-term emergency housing for needy or displaced persons.
Martha House I & II
Martha House provides long-term transitional housing for women and
their children, fostering the goal of independent living through
counseling and life skills training in a safe, supportive environment.
It strives to reintegrate individuals by encouraging self-sufficiency,
addressing the fundamental causes of homelessness, poverty, joblessness
and inability to find and maintain affordable housing.
Martha House provides children stability and access to uninterrupted
schooling and social services, and reunifies families separated due to
their social situations, the goal being to support a cohesive family
environment and to encourage and reinforce family values.
