Success Story: CAO leverages The Duke Endowment funds for rent assistance
Mr. Carson, who lost a job due to COVID was unable to pay rent. Community Action Opportunities leveraged The Duke Endowment funding to cover his rent. "I thank God for Community Action Opportunities," Mr. Carson said. "I was in a financial crisis due to COVID. I was stressed out, scared, losing weight. If it wasn't for CAO assisting me with rent and other bills I would probably be in the hospital by now. I just want to say thank you."
