Department of Youth and Family Services provides a “summer of fun”

Under the direction of Judge Michael D. Clement, through a partnership with numerous community entities, the Department ofYouth and Family Services (DYFS) has provided a summer of fun for many youth of Plaquemines Parish. From May 27th through July 3rd, DYFS sponsored “Summer Hoops” and “Thursday Outings” for kids in the isolated areas of our parish. Through a partnership with Plaquemines Parish School System, youth in the Port Sulphur and Phoenix areas met at the school gyms on Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 6:00 – 9:00 PM to play some friendly basketball. “Summer Hoops” serviced over 75 kids by providing healthy, appropriate recreational fun for six weeks.
