A Community Voice Helps Residents Get Jobs
On May 10th, 2012, over 100 residents came out to sign up for jobs at the Lower 9th Ward community meeting at Trinity Lutheran Church on Claiborne & Egania. ACV is working with the City of New Orleans and JOB1 to make sure residents get the jobs to rebuild this city. Many projects that ACV members have been working hard to get rebuilt such as the Sanchez Center are finally about to start construction. Thanks to the Mayor's office and Councilmember Stacy Head for attending this meeting. Thanks to Trinity Lutheran for being such welcoming hosts. The Lower 9th Ward ACV group meets every second Thursday at Trinity Lutheran.
