Conversations with the Community: Karen Speakman, NeighborGood Partners

Logo for NeighborGood Partners

Meet Karen Speakman, Executive Director of NeighborGood Partners. Renters in Delaware are facing increasing rents and an insufficient number of available units. There is a shortage of 23,000 rental units for low-income households in Delaware. Waiting lists for subsidized rental housing or Section 8 housing assistance vouchers are often closed…and that’s just part of the story. NeighborGood Partners is working toward helping low and moderate-income Delawareans get housing.
