"Barrels of Joy" Families Moving Forward Collection This Weekend

Please consider donating items that will make a big impact on the day-to-day life of local families.

Right here in Durham, there are families who need our help. Families without a place to live. Families with young children. Families in need.

Families Moving Forward FMF offers a temporary home to these families with children in the crisis of homelessness. Families receive access to programs that help them build skills to return to a stable lifestyle and permanent housing as quickly as possible. FMF relies on community support and donations to serve Durham families in need. 

Holy Infant proudly partners with (FMF) through donation collections, service retreats and parishioners who prepare and serve meals throughout the year.
