Kenyell Jefferson was previously on the Chattanooga Housing Authority trespass list, meaning he could not step foot on any CHA property without running the risk of being arrested and charged with trespassing. However, Jefferson's family lived on CHA property making it extremely dangerous to visit them. "It was hard not being able to see my kids whenever I wanted." said Jefferson. Jefferson was taken off the trespass list after he completed the Jobs for Life program at Hope For The Inner City on Roanoke. The program is designed to get inner city residents a job and for some immunity from the trespass list. Parish is no longer on the trespassing list and now has a job for a local landscaping company.
