OUR STORY

Every person deserves a safe place to sleep and hope for a brighter future!

WakeUpReachup is continuing to reach into the Durham and surrounding communities to provide residential supportive housing for some of our most at “risk” homeless young adults. The transition to adulthood (18 to 25) is a critical time. We are committed to providing a place of shelter and community supports so that they will have viable options to develop resilience and avoid repeated years of homelessness.

Our focused population often go unnoticed by the public. They are the ones getting kicked out at age 18 from wherever they were living, whether at home or released from foster care without a support system.  We will not see many of them at intersections or under bridges.  Many are “couch surfing”…moving from one sofa or floor to another and after a few nights the are told their time is up and they must find another place to live. They are the ones trading their bodies for shelter or finding a friend’s car to sleep in. Their lifestyle becomes a daily mode of survival.

 SERVICES

Empowering Young Adults to Be a Better Version of Themselves

Our purpose is to ignite and nurture the ambition of disconnected young adults to trade poverty for social, education and economic success.

Often, they lack consistent positive relationships with caring adults, and some do not have the other supports and services they need. Many struggle in education, locating employment, staying out of the criminal justice system, and avoiding risky behaviors.

By giving stability, housing, love and support , we believe their outcomes can be different.  We are determined to create a caring community focused on meeting participants needs, goals and dreams as they draw upon their own God given strengths  to thrive and succeed as productive, self-sufficient citizens.
