El Centro Hispano tutoring

El Centro logo

El Centro Hispano is a grassroots community-based organization dedicated to strengthening the Hispanic/Latino community in the Durham and Chapel Hill area. Education is the cornerstone of El Centro Hispano's work: preparing kids for success, and their parents for today's marketplace. To that end, ERUUF volunteers help Hispanic students in Kindergarten-2nd grade with homework and reading and math skills for 2 hours each Monday evening of the school year.


Homeless Action Group

The ERUUF/Urban Ministries Homeless Action Partnership is one way in which ERUUF serves our low income and homeless neighbors. The work that we do helps change lives through the dedicated service and financial contributions of our members. The programs at Urban Ministries of Durham (UMD) are only possible because of the work of volunteers.  UMD relies on over 4000 volunteer hours each year to provide housing, clothing and food. Each year over 200 ERUUF members and friends volunteer at the homeless shelter to support the various programs of UMD.


Multicultural Team

The Multicultural Team’s (MCT) role is to envision, research, assess, plan, and lead multicultural, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive programs and trainings at ERUUF. Along with the ministers, staff, and other lay leaders, we hold the vision of Beloved Community for ERUUF and seek to deepen the understanding and reality of our becoming a radically inclusive community. We believe that individual and institutional awareness about racial equity is important for us to be effective in engaging with the larger community outside of ERUUF. 

The MCT currently has action groups which plan and carry out initiatives in each of the following areas:
