Although legislative change is the primary goal of the Campaign to End Debtors' Prison, the unfortunate reality is that far too many Delaware residents are currently living with court-imposed debt and lack any realistic path toward full payment. Until systemic change can be realized, any reduction in this burden is a positive step.
In this light, the Campaign to End Debtors' Prison has partnered with Friendship House to establish a fund to assist people affected by fines and fees in Delaware. The funding will be used to pay off an entire fee or to pay partial down payments, allowing the individual to start a monthly payment plan with the court.
Support the Fines and Fees Fund, helping Delawareans impacted by unreasonable fines and fees.
