Connell's Best

"ReCity is a place where I can come, no matter how I feel, no matter what I'm going through, I know I have somebody I can talk to and who can talk to me. ReCity is a clothesline. Helius Foundation and StepUp are the clothespins. You can't have one without the other."

Connell Green’s story is unique, and then again, it’s not. People travel many roads to difficult life circumstances. In Connell’s case, a workplace injury forced him to start all over, while for others, it’s catastrophic illness, justice involvement, or leaving the foster system without a safety net. No matter the reason for disconnection from opportunity and prosperity, all of Durham’s residents deserve another chance.

At ReCity Network, 60 community leaders from over 30 non-profits, churches, and mission-driven businesses have risen to the occasion, helping one Connell Green at a time. Hear more about Connell's story and hear more stories like his on ReCity's website
