Jim Higdon served Georgia in many capacities at the state level throughout his career. He was even appointed by then Governor Jimmy Carter as Director of the Georgia State Crime Commission and served five Governors in numerous senior level Director positions. Upon his retirement, Jim revisited a lifelong love of woodworking and, with his wife Phillis by his side painting the small details, began crafting heirloom quality dollhouses. CHP is honored and proud to have received such a significant donation from the Hidgons! All proceeds go back to our core mission; Neighbors helping Neighbors.
