This is an excellent organization. It does highly professional/credible research on housing needs in the state that is used by both public agencies and private non-profits. This includes Who Can Afford to Live in Delaware, Realities of Poverty, Housing in a Hurry (a guide to affordable rental properties in the state) and others. DHC has set up a website called WHYNIMBY.org - Why Not in My Backyard - to combat racially and economically segregated communities caused by prejudice.
The organization supports increased funding for affordable housing and acts to promote fair housing in the state.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
publishing outstanding research and creating a more favorable climate for state funding for affordable housing.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
have a hard time identifying what to do.
