There are over 65,000 children in Durham and, for some of these children, their parents don’t know how to help them have success. Many of these families could benefit from additional help through services like those offered by the Exchange Family Center (EFC). EFC offers support to any Durham County family struggling with their child’s behaviors free of charge. Unfortunately, the center often has more demand for services than capacity. The Hilton Garden Inn-Durham University Medical Center (HGI-DUMC) saw this unmet need and offered to provide a year of support.
