My Legacy Foundation, Inc. was founded by Crystal L. Perkins in December, 2010. The foundation... was created after realizing the need of young inner city girls to gain positive exposure to activities that they unfortunately would not normally obtain. My Legacy was created to address the educational and social needs of these young girls. Ms. Perkins has been an active volunteer for over 10 years, and has volunteered in both Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Houston, TX for numerous organizations such as Junior Achievement - Houston, Big Brothers-Big Sisters Houston, Junior League of Louisiana, Brook Hollow Baptist Church Volunteer organization, Houston, TX and many more. This passion for volunteering is what led Ms. Perkins to found My Legacy Foundation, Inc.
