to pay the high rent, so they and their children are living on the
streets of New Orleans.

MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR:
Since I came back October 2005; I have kept my promise to God, and
so have my organization. It has been difficult at times, but we made
it through the rough times as well as the good times. We manage to
assist everyone that crossed our path who has allowed us to assist
them. Now in 2008 we all are still trying to recovery from Katrina, Rita, Gustav and Ike. Personally my family and I are still
struggling, but God has told me to continue to fight, and to hope,
and to dream for a better New Orleans. This organization will
continue to now assist The New Orleans East and Gentilly Areas.
No problem is never to big or to small for the children of God.
"Remember You Can Overcome Any Obstacle With Just The Right
