2005

In order to meet these challenges we must evaluate our own positions, capabilities, needed adjustments. We need to increase our own capacity to respond to the calls placed upon us both by the communities we are already working with and by the new challenges that are facing us. SMHA's work takes on increased importance in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. SMHA's more than three decades of experience. in community development uniquely qualifies it to lead the special Rural Recovery Response.

More than ever, Southern Mutual will be an agent for change as it works with communities to identify and promote policies and creative approaches needed at the local, state and national levels to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. Advocacy, education and innovative public policies are a key part of SMHA’s special Rural Recovery Response.
