The homeless in North Durham don’t live on the street, covered in sleeping bags. They’re your friend’s adult child who moved home with their children due to the high cost of rent; the cousin who sleeps on your couch while searching for an affordable apartment; or the teenager you frequently see in front of the corner store.
North House provides a helping hand up, not a handout, to enable people to get back on their feet. North House helps those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless by helping them obtain stable housing and providing Wraparound support.
Join us on February 24, 2018 to walk a mile in their shoes. You can’t truly appreciate how cold it can be for someone without a home until you’ve walked 2km, 5km, or 10km in their shoes.
