Upper Chichester – Community Action Agency of Delaware County, Inc. (CAADC) has opened an additional Direct Service Office in Upper Darby. CAADC felt there was a need to provide a readily accessible service site in eastern Delaware County due to all the low- and moderate-income households that have suffered negative economic impacts from the COVID-19 Pandemic. Services provided will include referrals to County shelters and temporary emergency shelter as well as rental, utility and food assistance.
A grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony occurred on Wednesday September 14th. The office is located at 7408 West Chester Pike in Upper Darby. The office is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Residents seeking assistance can call 215-382-6753. Funding for the site is a COVID-19 ARPA Pandemic Response Grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).
Mr. Coleman stated, “We would really like to thank State Senator Tim Kearney and his staff for helping us to obtain the funding for this site. We look forward to better serving residents in need from this part of Delaware County.”
