Urban Hope is a community-based initiative of The Navigators®, focused on bridging spiritual, economic, and educational resources to young people and their families in the Walltown neighborhood of Durham, North Carolina. Our mission is to raise up generations of young heroes – who are beating the odds by the grace of God – through creating safe places in our neighborhood to grow together into wholeness. We offer a summer camp, academic coaching and tutoring, life-on-life mentoring, sports teams, spiritual formation, vocational enrichment, and leadership development.
