A Home for the Holidays: Housing for New Hope

There’s something in the air around the holidays. It’s a time to indulge with delicious food, participate in beloved traditions, and spend time with loved ones. The holiday spirit is in the air and it inspires the feeling of giving back.

There are many holiday traditions that revolve around transforming our spaces and home. To name a few, stockings are hung, candles are lit in celebration and reflection, and trees are trimmed and weighed down with ornaments. These traditions are part of the holidays, yet not everyone in Durham has access to safe, affordable housing.  

Housing for New Hope is an organization that opens doors to security, sustainability, and empowerment by helping people who are experiencing homelessness. Through comprehensive and compassionate services, they work to end homelessness in Durham one person at a time.

Their work creates a dignified experience for housing insecure individuals and families. Their team’s combined passion and expertise creates an unparalleled impact on the lives of Durhamites every day.


What is Housing for New Hope’s Vision for Durham?

 Housing for New Hope’s vision for Durham is that everyone deserves a safe, decent affordable place to live. No one should have to live outside or in a place not meant for human habitation. With all of the resources we have here in Durham this is a solvable problem. As a community we can come together and work together to make sure that everyone has a place to call home.
