Durham Eviction & Housing Debt Assistance

Learn more about CEF’s Durham Eviction & Housing Debt Assistance Funds


To Our Community:

Over the past eleven months, the Community Empowerment Fund has worked hard to disburse direct financial support to those who need it. Unfortunately, the need in Durham outweighs our resources. We have exhausted our Emergency Assistance Fund and Housing Debt Assistance Fund and are now only able to offer financial assistance through our Duke Chapel Fund.

This is hard news to share and we apologize to those of you who were expecting to be able to utilize these resources. While we are no longer able to offer immediate relief through direct financial assistance, we do hope to be in relationship with you. The Community Empowerment Fund strives to provide a safe supportive place for individuals to explore resources, engage in financial coaching, and navigate their goals.

If you have feedback to share about this change, please email Member Assistance Funds Manager, Emily Simpson-Keyes, at emilys@communityempowermentfund.org.

In community,
