What we are doing for our community is much needed in every community in our county, state, country and globally. One of DMCs main objectives is focusing on affordable housing for long term renters that are faced with a steady increase of their rent.
Based on the statistics of the American Community Survey, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the North Carolina Court system, the NLIHC 2018 Out of Reach Report and the U.S. Department of Energy for Dare County, 40% of renters have difficulty affording their homes. That’s 1,694 households. 35% of homeowners have difficulty paying their mortgage, that’s a staggering 3,544 households in Dare County alone. It is imperative for the future of the economy here in Dare County to be able to house its full time residents. These people make up the workforce. They also need to be able to live here.
The re-entry portion of our program focuses on helping formerly incarcerated residents re-enter the workforce locally. Our partners will include College of the Albemarle (a local community college), Dare County Sheriff Department, Dare County Recovery Court and Dare County Detention Center to help with the transition for inmates.
Integral to our mission is our community outreach with projects focusing on education, music and the arts, our youth empowerment and community.
DARE MINORITY COALITION INC. 501C3 (CDC)
Investing in yourself by Investing in your community
Dare Minority Coalition Inc. is a small nonprofit with a 501(c)(3) status here in Manteo. The future is hard to predict. But one thing we do know is that we will need resources to fuel our mission in years to come.
That’s why we’ve established the DMC Endowment Fund at the Dare Minority Coalition. The Fund is professionally invested for the long-term. Each year, 5% of the average fund balance is distributed to us to support our ongoing needs. That’s why our Endowment Fund is part of Dare Minority Coalition. You can play a part.
There are a variety of ways to give that provide you with maximum tax and financial benefits including:
• Transitional Housing collaboration with residents in our communities
• Donation of property: Your contributions may allow you to take advantage of double tax benefits.
WE HOPE YOU CAN HELP WITH OUR MISSIONS AND PROJECTS.
