Mission Statement

The Mission of DERC is to address adult poverty in Durham county by offering low-cost merchandise for distribution through organizational memberships to non-profit agencies and faith-based organizations; to provide on-the-job training to unemployed and those who are hard to employ; and to serve as an organizer and change agent to build and develop strategic partnerships to help address the root causes of poverty.

Description

The training program will consist of three eight week modules. The first module has four classes that provide employability/soft skills, personal development, financial managment, and basic computing. The second module will consist of leadership development, intermediate computer skills, and warehouse technician/on the job training classes. The third module will consist of academic goal-centered classes and expands the hours spent training in the warehouse.
