Durham Crisis and Response Center to host fundraiser to offset funding cuts
For more than 20 years, the Durham Crisis and Response Center has helped thousands of people annually. The center has been the sole provider of shelter and support services in the Durham area, providing counseling, legal advocacy, support, and shelter to survivors and their families in the aftermath of domestic violence and sexual assault.
More than 140 people per week call the center in need of help. Unfortunately, funding at the state and federal levels has been cut, prompting the center to ask for more donations so that it can keep going. To that end, the center will host various fundraising events throughout the year, beginning with the second annual Golf Tournament at The Crossings Golf Club April 15. Registration begins at noon, with a 1 p.m. shotgun start.
