DurhamCares depends heavily on our local expert service providers to author the landscape and scope of key issues in Durham in order to shine a brighter light on these areas. That way, the greater Durham community can better understand the current issue, highlight what is currently being done, who is working in this space and give Durham action steps to support and get involved in the most strategic areas. We’re working on developing the best path for gathering the information, making it consumable for the masses, marketing it effectively and inspiring the community to drive engagement. Our process includes gathering as many stakeholders (non-profits, local government and businesses) working in this specific space to discuss the current issue in order to map the full scope of the need in Durham. We take this information and create a storyboard of the landscape and then create infographics that can be distributed electronically as well as live on our website where people can learn more about the issue, find out who is currently working in this space and drill down further on key opportunities to get involved.
DurhamCares is working to capture local examples of solutions in action in a variety of formats ranging from videos, photojournalist pieces, news stories, blogs, to case studies. We want to feature Durham community members, volunteers, community groups and or businesses that have come alongside a nonprofit, school, neighborhood, etc. to invest their strengths, time, skills and resources to better love their neighbor in Durham.
