Name & Position Title 

Deana Labriola, Corporate Attorney & Geographic Team Lead for the Triangle Market for Ward and Smith, P.A.


What is your interest in affordable housing/homelessness services?  Why do you feel the work HNH does is important?

HNH's work is so important, particularly in a rapidly growing city like Durham.  Without the important work of Durham, the gap between those the haves and have-nots forever widens.  Housing for New Hope fills those necessary gaps so that no person or family is without a home. 


What is your favorite thing to do in Durham/love the most about our city?

I love to EAT in Durham!  Durham has the best food in the South, and I love trying new and old restaurants in our beloved city.


What is your personal fundraising goal?

My personal fundraising goal is $1,000.
