“Children’s Bureau is the best kept secret in New Orleans! Our agency provides free services to low income families impacted by grief and trauma.” said Paulette Carter, CEO of Children’s Bureau of New Orleans. “I am excited about this year’s Bowling for Children event and the new companies that we have joining us this year! This event will help fund the programs and services that have been cut tremendously by the current state fiscal crisis. We need the support of community and local businesses and that of the businesses to serve the city’s most vulnerable youth.”
