“Why I Serve”

Quotes from current and former Board Members

I want to contribute to a better quality of life for homeless families and help to, and with, structure a brighter future
— Dorothy Powell
I serve because I want everyone living in Durham to have a place to call home.
— Leon Sabarsky
I serve Families Moving Forward because I believe every human being has a right to quality, affordable, safe housing from which they can build better communities.
— Sherri Lawson Clark
I have been a single parent trying to raise children while holding down a job and Keeping things together. I know how hard that is and I want to help others. I know if not for the support of my parents, my children and I could have easily been homeless.
— Cindy Streett
