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.

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...
