My name is Jacqueline Alvarez, my journey with Life Directions, as a Project Associate, has very recently begun. I was born and raised in Southwest Detroit. I feel at home working within the community especially with youth. I was blessed with graduating from Cass Technical High School and then from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor. It truly is a gift to be back and working alongside outstanding individuals who care about giving and forgiving.
