DurhamCares and Google Voice Team Up

DurhamCares, a Triangle based nonprofit organization, is working with Google Voice to provide homeless people in Durham with phone capabilities. DurhamCares is providing 500 Google Voice cards to six local charities, which will give hundreds of people the ability to communicate digitally. The goal is to give homeless people the opportunity to reach resources that are otherwise inaccessible. Each individual participating in the initiative will receive a separate phone number, giving them the freedom to market themselves more effectively to employers and other community members.

Henry Kaestner, cofounder of DurhamCares and CEO of, was a catalyst in driving this idea. Henry has been a CED member since 2004 and has participated as a speaker in a wide variety of events. Henry is another example of a successful entrepreneur that is using his resources to give back to Durham. To learn more about DurhamCares and their mission driven goals, please visit their website:
