Angela Davis, J.D. ‘14, is featured in a recent NOLA.com article on her work running Hagar's House. The eight-year-old, Mid-City nonprofit provides food, shelter and support for people in need as they leave the streets or abusive relationships, and "transition into sustainable housing."
"The women at Hagar's House are my mentors. I learn so much about wisdom, living in a community, and raising children from them. I adopted a child a year and a half ago and watching the incredible parenting that happens at Hagar's House, it's mind expanding."
Davis, who is director of the house, created the program in 2007 with three other AmeriCorps co-workers.
