Building a community where all neighbors feel at home.


WellNest is a student-led initiative at the Duke University School of Medicine that provides support to newly-housed neighbors in the Durham/Chapel Hill area who have a history of homelessness. 


We assist in initial move-in period, furnish the new home, and provide tenancy support for at least one year after move-in.
