Reality Programming Canceled through March: Coronavirus Update

After careful consideration, the Reality staff has decided to cancel all Reality programming through March 29, 2020. We will continue to evaluate the length of time we will need to suspend programming as more information comes in. 

We are joining with many communities around North Carolina and the U.S. committed to taking preventative measures to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) by way of early action.  Many experts are encouraging communities to practice social distancing (avoiding close physical contact, large gatherings, and crowded public spaces) now in order to slow the spread of the disease and prevent the healthcare system from being overwhelmed.  Reality Ministries is a community with many people who are particularly vulnerable to this disease. We are joining in early prevention efforts to protect both the Reality community and the wider community around us. 

This decision comes with great sadness. We are ever committed to our mission of cultivating friendship during this time in whatever ways seem appropriate given the ever-evolving situation. 


Over 70% of our financial support comes from
the generosity of individual donors.

A community of belonging is where…

You come as you are, to love and be loved

Ms Blanche and I have been to overnight camp together 11 times. She’s lived in NC all her life and I was with her 3 years ago when she saw the ocean for the first time…

A community of belonging is where…

You Feel At Home

My name is Tikelah, or Miss T, and I have a home in the Corner House.

I grew up with a home.  I lived with my grandma.  

She raised me and loved me.

My grandma cared about me.

I had a home with her when I was young…

A community of belonging is where…

You celebrate each other
