In the last JLH grantee reunion trip of the year, The Kinship Advisors, Fund Black Founders, and Lauren Holiday visited Round 1 and 2 grantee recipients in the city of New Orleans. During the trip, the group visited with deserving grantee recipients like Daughters Beyond Incarceration, Operation Restoration, Dryades YMCA, Son of A Saint, Liberty’s Kitchen, and Xavier University of Louisiana. While visiting with the NOLA Grantees, they also connected with Hurricane Ida relief partner and Community Advocate, Gary Chambers, where they discussed ways to continue partnering in the New Orleans rebuild in 2022.
The TKA team also attended the Son of a Saint Annual Gala, which raised funds to support the nonprofit’s mentorship program, education and mental health services for male youth ages 10-21, whose parents are detrimentally affected by the criminal justice system.
