Forever Home, Durham is providing life-changing opportunities for families and individuals seeking affordable housing. In addition to funding residential development and renovations for homebuyers and renters, the program supports services helping residents who are facing eviction or homelessness. We’re pleased to share inspiring stories and examples of the program’s positive impact in our community.
