Our Mission

Connections Community Support Programs, Inc. provides a comprehensive array of health care, housing, and employment opportunities that help individuals and families to achieve their own goals and enhance our communities.

Our Evolution

Founded in 1985 as a subsidiary of the organization then known as Church Home Foundation, Connections’ original mission was to help older adults with lifelong histories of psychiatric hospitalization to move into the community.

Our mission expanded in 1988 to include homeless services and substance abuse treatment. In 1991 Connections was spun off and incorporated as a separate 501 (c) 3 during the merger that created what is now known as Ingleside Homes.

Today, Connections is one of Delaware’s largest nonprofits, collaborating with government, community, corporate and other philanthropic partners to maximize services for our state’s most vulnerable citizens.

We operate in more than 100 separate locations in Delaware, including all facilities in Delaware’s unified correctional system, and have recently expanded our services to the eastern shore of Maryland. We have more than 1,700 full-time employees who serve more than 42,000 people each year.

Our current strategic plan calls for us to explore opportunities in nearby states. In 2016, we became the provider of medical, mental health care and addiction treatment to the Caroline County Detention Center in Denton, Maryland.

Our story is one of steady growth, always with an eye on creating social service and health care programs to help the most vulnerable citizens.
