Urban Ministries of Durham was founded in 1983 as a host site for multiple organizations serving some of the most vulnerable residents of Durham, including those without a place to live. Today it is a shelter, a community cafe, and a place to access food and clothing for individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Durham. They continue to work with many partners and to serve as a hub for crisis support. Partners for Impact has supported the board of directors through board development and staff through conversations in self care.
