Saving Public Housing?

Diane and I are on a conference call together with faith based housing practitioners who are together planning a housing symposium for the national Christian Community Development Conference this September in Durham, NC I’m coming to appreciate Diane’s passion for heart change more all the time and her efforts to save public housing.

My friend Diane Miller, who just finished reading my book, made some nice comments. “I just finished reading MHH and was so encouraged by it. I love all of the tangible examples of what people are doing around the country.” I’m quite impressed with Diane’s efforts to save some public housing in Chicago. See the link below for more information about the work that she is doing.
