Members and agencies present were, Parish President V.J. St. Pierre, Councilman At Large Division B Terry Authement, Krystle Johnson - Metropolitan Center for Women, Deborah Zeringue - Domestic Violence Victim’s assistant coordinator, Sue Agnelly and Kacy Kernan - United Way of St. Charles, Gail Roussell - Creative Family Solution director, Tina Wright and Nicole Armstrong - Business and Career Center, Charlene Leonard - Building Bridges, Mary Mire and Jan Harris.
