Durham has started to experience a tidal wave of evictions. The Durham Eviction Diversion Program is seeking committed volunteers to listen to client stories and to help clients complete applications for financial assistance. The Eviction Diversion Program has launched a new program with Durham Social Services to provide financial assistance to low-income families and residents who have been affected by COVID-19. This financial assistance may make a difference between keeping people housed or leading to homelessness.


No law degree is needed to help keep people in their homes. Volunteers are asked to be compassionate and patient; to keep clients' details confidential; and to exercise an attention to detail.
