Who We Are
Urban Ministries of Durham (UMD) connects with the community to end homelessness and fight poverty by offering food, shelter, and a future to neighbors in need. On a typical day, 300-400 people utilize UMD services with 145 people staying in the shelter each night. More than 4,000 people receive assistance each year. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, it provides beds in the Community Shelter, meals in the Community Café, job placement with Workforce Training, basic resources through the Food Pantry and Clothing Closet, and addiction aid through the Recovery Program.
Urban Ministries of Durham assumed its present form in 2001 when the Durham Community Shelter for Hope (a downtown community shelter) joined with the St. Philip’s Community Café and the United Methodist Mission Society. Born of a strong connection with faith communities, UMD has evolved into a nonsectarian safety net for homeless families and homeless single men and women in Durham County. It employs a transformative model of meeting basic needs with the goal to move the client into permanent housing as quickly as possible. Coordinated assessments and case management support begins the first week of shelter stay. Individualized exit plans and specialized care address physical or mental health conditions, recovery, job
training, literacy or the special needs of veterans. Through these programs and linking clients with other community services, UMD has helped more than 1,000 people move out of homelessness over the past five years.
A 25-member Board of Directors governs UMD with representation from across the community. Board and staff leadership places a high value on diversity through its board recruitment and staff hiring practices. The Executive Director guides a leadership team composed of a Director of Development, a Clinical Director, a Director of Finance and Human Resources, a Director of Marketing, and a Director of Community Engagement. The Board is considering the creation of an Operations Director position. A strategic roadmap that guides its growth is undergoing review.
The essential work of UMD is sustained by a dedicated, effective base of donors. During fiscal 2017 a total of 4,339 volunteers—from elementary school children to senior citizens in their 90s—provided 25,682 hours to end homelessness and fight poverty. Donors are eager and passionate about the work of UMD. UMD has adequate reserve funds to supplement cash flow and handle emergencies. Total revenues for the past fiscal year were $3.3 million. The fundraising plan requires attention to relationships with longtime donors and the systematic cultivation of new ones including individuals, corporations, faith communities, and foundations. UMD has a strong, well-deserved and broadly recognized brand, built over recent years with an innovative collaboration with advertising firm McKinney. Fundraising communications, events, and a variety of group and individual appeals effectively share powerful stories of change.
UMD has helped forge a true collaboration with three other organizations assisting homeless families—Housing for New Hope, Families Moving Forward, and Durham’s Partnership for Children. Titled the Durham Collaborative to End Family Homelessness, it attacks the problem from a community perspective instead of the narrow lens of a single organization. Its work has been validated with a major grant from the United Way of the Triangle. The Collaborative has taken a leadership role in creating a coordinated countywide service delivery system, connecting clients with other public and private organizations. Such partnerships are at the heart of UMD’s business plan to move its clients out of homelessness.
UMD is located near downtown Durham, in the exciting Triangle region of North Carolina, which is home to major universities and health centers. The area has an inspiring entrepreneurial spirit and a variety of rich cultural, intellectual, outdoor and athletic offerings as well as proximity to renowned beaches and mountains. Vibrant, diverse and fast-growing, the region consistently ranks high among Forbes magazine’s "Best Places for Business and Careers" in the nation.
