Updated July 2020: CEF's COVID-19 Policy and Procedures

Redistribute your stimulus payment to CEF Members!

Any donation of $1,200 will be pooled in a fund and redistributed to Durham County Members in need of support with move-in costs, security deposits, application fees, rent, and/or utilities who have not been able to access support through other avenues.
The Community Empowerment Fund is working to end the racial wealth gap by supporting over 1,000 Members, annually, in reaching their employment, housing, and finance goals. Our approach combines person-centered support with advocacy and financial services that pursue equity. CEF’s work is grounded in recognition of the detrimental impacts of systemic racism on Black and Brown members of our communities and we value the leadership of people with lived experiences with homelessness and poverty.
