Learn Who We Are
Urban Ministries of Durham is a private 501(c) 3 non-profit organization governed by a 18-member Board of Directors with 27 staff members and more than 2,000 volunteers.
Urban Ministries of Durham was developed and is partially supported by a diverse group of faith communities as well as many individuals, foundations, corporations, and levels of government. We're non-proselytizing and welcome guests regardless of their beliefs, religious affiliation, or non-preference. We do offer optional spiritual support, and a chaplain is available to meet with clients for spiritual counseling.
UMD distinguishes itself from other organizations that care for Durham's homeless and impoverished neighbors by serving as a comprehensive service provider of food, shelter, clothing and supportive services for over 6,000 men, women and children annually. We welcome guests with mental illnesses, active addictions, and those seeking outside employment.
