Durham Rescue Mission

From Issuepedia


Durham Rescue Mission (DRM) is a Christianity-based charity in Durham, NC that provides aid to the homeless. It was founded by Ernie Mills and his wife in 1974.

DRM reportedly discourages its workers from seeking mental healthcare, apparently in the belief that prayer is a superior alternative. (This is hearsay which Issuepedia has not been able to confirm.)

In 2011, DRM drew criticism for its efforts to close two through-streets in a slowly revitalizing area of eastern Durham, as detailed in an article in the Endangered Durham blog, with the aid of legal giant K&L Gates.
