I can help the most vulnerable population of New Orleans access the best social, educational and community services. This is a chance to work with young people who have fallen through the cracks of the system. No young person should fall into the juvenile justice system – but we can ensure that being system-involved is not the end of the road.

All kids deserve somebody to fight for them.

They give you lawyers when you go to juvenile... And just so happened I got a lawyer called Nelson Bowman and me and him became very close friends…. Me and Bowman just spent time, he would come to my house, see how I was doing, this and that. And then I met Ms. Laura, she was his assistant. And we've just been like a whole family... You'd be surprised how many people be behind you after something like that happens.
Our kids are good kids. And kids who can do well, will do well. We just need to give them the opportunity.
