Homeless Back to Work Job Fair
We challenged thru a hard year dealing with the harsh realities of Covid-19 & a strong erratic category 4 Hurricane Ida smash directly into Southeastern Louisiana causing great destruction. Rewriting Destiny’s dared ourselves to move forward with our Homeless Back to Work Job Fair where food & jobs sponsored by Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen @ 1243 St. Charles Ave.. Thanks to Wendell Monroe & Dwayne Fontenette.
One month after the hurricane the job fair took, place October 1, 2021, from 11:00am - 1:00pm outside at Oretha Castle Haley under the Greater New Orleans Bridge. Our Founder Zi’rielle Jones & 9 volunteers Dwan Riley, Raekwon Keys, Sharon Loper, Theresa Greenhouse, Daniel Garrett, Veronica Braggs, Bronson Braggs, Armani Riley & Special K arrived at 9:00am to start cleaning & setting up the event. The job fair provided 125 free meals sponsored by local Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, cold drinks and water and bags filled with razors, soap, face towels, deodorant, socks, toothbrushes and toothpaste pads and panty liners. We obtained our objectives by feeding 125 participates with our Feeding Service and signing up 3 participants for our Network Services Program (Job Referral Service) to get jobs at Popeye’s
