Delta Grace

Please consider bringing a team to Delta Grace, in the Mississippi Delta in 2020.  

There are so many homes in need of repair.  

We have more than 300 applications for homes mostly owned by elder women and men that have been waiting for more than 3 years for Delta Grace to help.  We need your hands and feet to make a difference and to bring hope to those living in what seems to be hopeless situation.
