Let's House Durham

A new initiative by Urban Ministries of Durham aims to end homelessness, brick by brick, through a new and unique fund raising campaign called "Let's House Durham."

The campaign is looking for every person in Durham to donate just $15.76. If everyone donated that amount UMD can house all those affected by homelessness in the city for an entire year.

The event will feature music, arts, food trucks and information about healthy eating that incorporates culture and is budget friendly.
