Our History

Our founder, Beth Benham, saw a need to help women in the Durham area around a variety of issues. Her experience with International CWM (www.cwmhope.org) led her to open a Christian non-profit CWM center in Durham, NC in December 2012. 


Our ministry has consistently grown through God's provision and the helping hands of many volunteers, donors and community partners.
