We are not alone in our love for Durham. For the last five years Jeff McSwain and his team at Reality Ministries have made it their mission to serve Durham’s neediest citizens: our marginalized youth and special-needs community. They do this in a myriad of ways: after-school programs, an alternative high school, small-group Bible studies, summer camps and evening social programs for disabled teens and adults. On any given day, 60 teens may walk through the doors of the Reality Center, to be greeted by the Reality staff and its awesome corps of volunteer tutors, mentors and friends.
Filming the daily activities at the center gave us a “behind the scenes” look at the good things that are happening here and it made us really excited about what this group is doing in our city. In fact, it inspired us to begin volunteering at Reality as well. If you feel inspired, call Julie at (919) 688-7776.
