Employment for crew hired off "the Corner"!
Jerry James (shown here on one knee in front) serves as the "foreman" for our landscape crew.
We hired each of these folks off of "the Corner" where we show up on Thursdays for refreshments, conversation and friendship creation.
Jerry comes from a tough background himself that includes time behind bars. He works as hard as anyone I've ever known. His crew follows his lead.
This group of formerly unemployed, homeless persons executed the landscape plan for the Opportunity Center that CitySquare is building at the corner of Malcolm X and I-30.
What you see here is a moment in time on a pathway to renewal and transformation.
This is our work.
