In 1992, our founder Terry Allebaugh opened Phoenix House, a transitional shelter for men. He realized that many individuals exiting Durham’s emergency shelters were not successful in maintaining housing, and believed that supportive services were critical to ensure long-term housing success. Since then, Housing for New Hope has served thousands of people as they’ve moved from homelessness to housing.
Over the years, our programs continue to grow in response to the needs of our community and unhoused neighbors. We’re now a staff of 30+, serving 617 men, women, and children in the last year. Through the work of staff, volunteers, and community partners, we’re able to connect our most vulnerable neighbors to housing and hope. Thank you for being our community partners to end homelessness in Durham one valuable person at a time.
