Solving Real World Problems

"Durham Community Land Trustees is a community-controlled organization that builds and renovates homes for low-income Durham residents. The Clinic has helped us plan for the future by helping us understand our options as co-developers of housing tax credit developments. The expertise, ability to communicate with community leaders, and good judgment of the Clinic staff has been a tremendously valuable resource for the Land Trust."

— Lanier Blum, Durham Community Land Trustees
