Empowering the community
The Encouraging Place exists to inspire racial healing, serve local families, and empower women across North Carolina.
Encourage one another
The Encouraging Place isn’t a physical location. Instead, it’s a mindset and a place of action for people to reach past their prejudices and seek healing and reconciliation. We are committed to the belief that transformation can happen with honest dialogue.

My world is no longer white. I now understand how my skin color gave me different opportunities; how my skin color put me in a world where my life experiences were not the real world. It was a hard pill to swallow. …For the first time in my life, I felt I was having an awakening to the world.
Stepping off an all-white Board to join TEP Board was another intentional choice I made. In fact, the biggest transformation has been setting racial reconciliation as a top priority in my life. I am so very thankful to have TEP to work with since there are no other groups I am aware of focusing so much on racial reconciliation. I believe this is a major issue in our country and I’m prepared to do all I can to help.
