For those involved in the street life, the decision to change is never an easy one. It’s tough to think of a life without the hustle, because once you’re in it, that’s all you know. For a time, that’s all I knew too. But I strongly believe they can make a change. They have skills, but need help putting their skills to use in legitimate and positive ways. NOLA FOR LIFE brings together a community of service providers and support to help young men make that change. I’m proud to be a part of this, and I have hired NOLA FOR LIFE participants who have done a great job working with me in my businesses. I can honestly say that NOLA FOR LIFE is making a real difference in the lives of real people.
