Community and Family Historical Preservation Association

Community Family Historical Preservation Association is an organization based in Jasper County focused on preserving the area’s cultural heritage as a “freedom colony”“-a place where persons who had been emancipated from slavery settled.

Clinic students assisted CFHPA in changing its status from an LLC to a nonprofit, drafting its founding organizational documents, and applying for federal tax exemption status. Students also provided community legal education on issues related to protecting the ownership of their land.
