Senator Tom Carper Visits Stand By Me at Delaware Tech

NEWARK - U.S. Senator Tom Carper recently toured the Stand By Me Financial Empowerment Center at Delaware Tech's Stanton Campus. Stand By Me is a coalition of community partners, led by United Way of Delaware and the State of Delaware. Their mission is to provide Delawareans with a Personal Financial Coach and a toolkit to navigate the challenges leading to personal financial security.  The program’s goal is to increase the capacity of Delawareans to understand and manage their finances in order to increase their financial stability and future economic opportunities.

Delaware Tech has Stand By Me locations at its Wilmington and Stanton Campuses. Students and community members can make appointments for financial counseling, help with financial aid forms, or tax assistance by calling 302-552-5970 for Wilmington or 302-292-3800 for Stanton.
