One of the best ways to learn about homelessness and the needs of those at risk is to get involved by volunteering with us or by visiting our facility for a tour.

Invite us to tell our story. UMD speakers are looking for opportunities to visit local groups, businesses, schools and communities of faith to talk about the needs of those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and to discuss the ways UMD and others provide assistance.

To arrange a tour or to schedule a speaker, contact Viki Baker at vbaker@umdurham.org.
