STORY: Holloway Place

Do you remember your first holiday in your new home? Maybe it was the first one spent with your children. Or the first time your entire family gathered there together. Celebrating with friends and family, sharing new traditions: these are the cherished memories we create at home.

Lisa, Sandra and Brittney will celebrate their first Christmas at HNH's Holloway House.

This year, residents Lisa, Sandra and Brittney will create new memories as they celebrate their first Christmas at Holloway Place, Housing for New Hope’s new affordable housing residence for single women. Here, they will cook their first Christmas dinner together, decorate the first (ever!) Holloway Place Christmas tree, enjoy family recipes like Brittney’s freshly baked biscuits, and share each other’s company throughout the day. We all wish for these simple gifts during the holiday season, and because of the generosity of our donors and friends, these special memories will be made possible at Holloway Place this year.

Before moving into their new home, Lisa, Sandra and Brittney struggled to find affordable housing in the neighborhood where they worked and had family ties. They know, firsthand, the hardship of not having a home to call their own. We are proud to share that with the opening of Holloway Place in June 2019, we have created a space that connects our Durham neighbors like Lisa, Sandra and Brittney to both housing and hope.
