The Duke Endowment: Bringing New Hope to Neighborhoods

For decades, Spartanburg’s Northside community and Charlotte’s Boulevard Homes neighborhood grappled with the same problems.

They endured high poverty and crime rates, poor educational outcomes and substandard housing. They gained reputations as magnets for inner-city blight.

Thankfully, they now share a more hopeful distinction. They’re part of the Purpose-Built Communities network, a national redevelopment model that targets troubled neighborhoods with a holistic array of social services. The idea is to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty by mounting sustained, systematically coordinated interventions in neighborhoods where poverty’s roots sink most deeply.

The Duke Endowment: Supporting Foster Parents in the Carolinas

As new foster parents, their child’s frequent tantrums concerned them. Not only were the episodes extreme, the triggers were unpredictable. They connected the little girl’s behavior to the trauma she had experienced before joining their family, but it was hard to know how best to respond.

In North Carolina, a new program is helping foster parents learn how to support the special needs of children in their care by better understanding trauma and its consequences. Called ARC Reflections, the skills-building model has been piloted in six child welfare agencies, including five in North Carolina.

With promising results from the test sites, The Duke Endowment is now funding expansion in South Carolina. There’s more to learn, says Phil Redmond Jr., director of the Endowment’s Child Care program area, “but we believe ARC Reflections will help agencies provide a valuable new resource for helping foster families thrive.”

Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation: Becoming Explicit about Equity

Recent history and troubling current events are turning a glaring mirror on America, fueling the urgency to shape a more equitable future, to put more shoulder behind that bending moral arc. We’ve watched in horror as white supremacists snake through our streets spewing violence and hatred with impunity. We’ve witnessed the rise of elected leaders who unapologetically express racist attitudes and enact policies that target communities of color and exacerbate inequality. We’ve seen state after state pass laws intended to disenfranchise entire populations; one court found North Carolina’s voting procedures “target African-Americans with almost surgical precision.”
