Durham HOPE Network: Harnessing Our Partnerships for Education
DPS Foundation (
) is coordinating community resources and partners and facilitating partnerships with DPS schools to help meet students’ needs during these extraordinary challenges created by COVID-19. DPS Foundation will create a database of community resources that will be accessible to DPS schools to access as they identify needs for this coming school year. The Foundation will also work directly with schools to help them identify community resources/partners they can access to meet specific needs or challenges they are facing.
Schools and partners will be supported in ensuring that health and safety procedures are in place (e.g., if a partner offers space for indoor gatherings of students that would be used for a number of students who could safely social distance in the space, wear masks, etc.).
This partnership database is for resources that can be freely available to DPS students.
Please fill out this form if you are an INDIVIDUAL with resources and/or supports you may be able to provide to DPS students in the upcoming school year.
The information you provide on this form will be put on a publicly available database. If you have questions please email
Please share this form with other community members who may have supports and resources to offer.
