Families Moving Forward is the primary agency in Durham focused on addressing the needs of families with children who are experiencing homelessness. FMF has served over 300 families since its formation in 2016 with the merger of Durham Interfaith Hospitality Network with Genesis Home. Immaculate Conception has been partnering with FMF, and DIHN before that, for 25 years. It is a critical ministry allowing parishioners to provide compassionate service and hospitality, as they witness to the human dignity of all in our community.
FMF is a leader in Durham and throughout North Carolina in addressing the impact of homelessness on children. Its two-generation approach recognizes both individual needs as well as the needs of the family as a whole, combining interventions for parents and children to interrupt the cycle of poverty and homelessness. Your gift will help FMF provide life-changing interventions, skills, and opportunities for families in its emergency shelter, rapid rehousing, and aftercare programs.
