Sorry for the “Streetcar Named Desire” reference, but it’s my mental marker for a great work going on down on Desire Street.
Back in the early 2000’s I was blessed to visit and get to know the folks at the then thriving Desire Street Academy. Then came Katrina and washed it all away, or almost. The ministry has shifted a little, but the vision for inner city renewal is still there. I recently caught back up with this ministry and wanted to throw it out there for others to get to know.
