Name: Jamal Perkins


Agency/Position/How long?
I work for START Corporation Supportive Services for Veteran Families, as a Community Support Specialist. I’ve been with START since 2010, but have been in my current role for 17 months.


I have a Masters of Arts from the University of New Orleans and have over 20 years of social and community services experience.


Favorite Veteran client moment:
I was able to assist an elderly homeless veteran into housing and connect him to VA services.


If you had a super power, what would it be and why?
This might not actually be a super power, but if I had to choose, I would want the power to heal the sick.


One interesting thing about yourself you would like people to know?
I’m a quiet person who shuns notoriety. Really!
