According to Atlanta’s 11 Alive, LaGrange Housing Authority head, Zsa Zsa Heard, hired four teens— Dylik, Dennis, Deion and Jalen— on the spot on July 27.
The four young men wanted jobs to avoid being recruited by local gangs, and Heard quickly understood their plight.
Last week, the woman took to Facebook to share their story. Now, the young men work in the garden and make deliveries.
I want Facebook to empower these young men they walked into my office today and asked for a job. I said why do you want a job? They said so we want get in trouble and we do not want to be in a gang! I said have people approached you about being in a gang they said yes’mam! I hired them on the spot! The streets will not have our children!#ILOVELHACHILDREN
