Real Change Wilmington sits down with Denise Stryker and Sydney Murtland from the Clinton County Homeless Shelter to discuss what lead them to their current positions, services offered by the homeless shelter, and common misconceptions about who they serve at the shelter.


Both Clinton County residents with big hearts and helping hands, Stryker and Murtland really love their jobs. During our tour of the facilities you could tell from the glimmer in their eyes while telling stories of residents of the past, every person who comes to the Clinton County Homeless Shelter is treated with respect, kindness and love.


The Shelter founded in 1988, has grown tremendously in the last 35 years with the generosity of the community and leaders like the Matrka Family, Darleen Myers, Pay-it-Forward Pat, and the late Pastor Looney. The shelter has grown from 1 building to 4, helping to house men, women, and families of Clinton County. This heartwarming listen will keep you smiling about the good in the world and give us hope for real change.
