All HQ employees are invited to join Secretary Jackson and Ryan Streeter, director of the Department's Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, at 1:00 PM today as they welcome gospel legend Shirley Caesar to HUD Headquarters. An ordained pastor, Shirley has touched millions of lives through her songs and her faith-based outreach.
Shirley Caesar, renown gospel singer and faith-based advocate.

The event will broadcast via satellite and webcast for those employees who are unable to attend and for those in our regional and field offices.
