Khendis Flowers – Resident
“All we want is to uplift the area and uplift the youths in the community because the youths need a little job to uplift themselves because nothing is happening for those ghetto youths and they want to eat to. So if they put in little jobs for the youth they will have changes and if they cooperate with that it will happen. That is all that we want jobs. We don’t come here to give the man a hard time we are just here to make life easy for all of us.
