My name is Glen Marie Williams. I am 59 years old. I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. I lived in the Desire Project for more than 40 years. I graduated from George W. Carver Sr. High in 1978. I have two beautiful children, Keiajuana Williams, 38, and Roshad Reed, 29, and one beautiful granddaughter, Kashmere Moye, whom I love dearly. I have one brother and five sisters whom I love with all my heart. My mother was a single parent with two jobs trying to support us. I love her and miss her, but I know she is smiling down on us.
I found out about the program from a friend (Karen Williams) who also went through this program and had a home built. I thank God for people like Karen who don’t mind trying to help someone else out.
