Desire Street Ministries

A friend of mine, John Green, heads up Emmaus, a ministry committed to making Jesus known on the streets of Chicago to men involved in prostitution. In this month's newsletter he highlights and affirms Desire Street Ministries (DSM) in New Orleans.
DSM is committed to revitalizing the Desire neighborhood through spiritual and community development. Over the years, this mission has taken form through a variety of initiatives: growing a church out of a Bible study with local youth; opening a children’s pediatric clinic in cooperation with a nearby hospital; and starting a series of after-school projects.
With all the attention on those who have been displaced, let's not forget the local ministries serving those who will return to rebuild. You can read more at the link.
