Durham Housing Authority Cuts The Ribbon on The Joyce, Named for Local Trailblazer

Date Published:

This month, the Durham Housing Authority and partners cut the ribbon on The Joyce, an 80-unit apartment complex, the first new construction community of a $1 billion, 2,500 unit plan to bring much-needed housing to Durham. The Joyce is named in honor of pioneering trailblazer Joyce T. Nichols, Durham's first African American physician's assistant, a former member of DHA's Board of Commissioners, and a staunch advocate for tenants' rights. The Joyce is located across the street from Duke University's physician's assistant program, where Ms. Nichols earned her degree. This ribbon cutting completes a new DHA campus along with the recently renovated JJ Henderson community and The Miracle League field.
