Why End Poverty Durham?

Durham is a thriving city with a median income of $48,900, yet it has a 28% child poverty rate and an 18% adult poverty rate.

This disparity is unacceptable, shameful, and contrary to the teachings of our faith. We therefore seek to:

  • mobilize the faith community to remove the scourge of poverty from our city,
  • support existing anti-poverty efforts, and
  • promote other initiatives that address the underlying causes of poverty.
Our Mission
To make our congregations aware of the crisis of poverty in our city. To develop a plan to eliminate this crisis within the next 25 years.
