Thanks to the generosity and technical wizardry (at least to my Neanderthalic eyes) of Isaac Freund, we now have a forum to inform, enlighten, and encourage each other, as we pursue CAHFH’s vision for partnering with local folks and outside volunteers in addressing problems with substandard housing and deeper issues of racial reconciliation in the Mississippi Delta.
