Kramden’s new, larger facility at 5010 NC Hwy 55 in Durham is now open!

With the support of countless volunteers, donors, and champions from North Carolina, we have purchased a 15,000-square-foot building in South Durham, about a mile from our current office.

This new HQ will accelerate our strategic growth and support our vision for expanding program access across the state with a bigger warehouse and expanded classrooms and collaborative workspaces! Learn more about plans for our new long-term home here!

When the pandemic hit in 2020, Michael Chen decided to give back to the community by creating over 500 3D printed mask buckles. Earlier this year, Michael was recognized for his hard work with the National Honoree 2021 Prudential Spirit of Community Award. Each recipient was able to choose a non-profit to receive a $5,000 grant as part of the award and Michael selected Kramden Institute.

This week, Michael stopped by with his family to tour the new space and provide the Kramden staff with their own personal mask buckles. A huge thank you to this great family of supporters!
