About Us

Our Program

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.

Motel Ministry

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.
