Address: 112 Broadway Street, Suite B, Durham, NC 27701 Website: www.stepupdurham.org
StepUp Durham's story began in 2013 with the formation of an exploratory committee, consisting of Durham residents concerned with under- and unemployment in our city. After examining StepUp's core values and programming in Raleigh and Greensboro, the committee determined that opening a local office would benefit Durham families. The committee helped us establish racial equity, community listening, and asset-based community development as core organizational principles and practices. Guided by StepUp Ministry’s mission, we opened StepUp Durham’s doors in September 2015. In June of 2017, StepUp Durham moved to ReCity Network in downtown Durham. ReCity Network is a co-working space for non-profits, mission-driven businesses, and faith-based organizations. It functions as a hub for social impact by fostering opportunities for collaborative partnerships that begin with shared space and aims for shared impact that addresses issues related to race, gender, wealth, and opportunity.
