Division of Human Resources
The third executive division of the Mayor's Office, the Human Resources Administration, is a prime example of the fluid organizational structure of the Morial administration. The archives holds four groups of records from the division: subject files of the Executive Assistant for Human Resources, records of the Community Services Office, records of the Special Assistant to the Mayor, and a small group of records relating to political activities of Human Resources unclassified staff. We have attempted, in the individual descriptions that follow, to place each administrative unit, as well as its records, within the overall framework of the division.

The Division of Human Resources was responsible for administering and coordinating City programs related to human services. The division oversaw programs operating in the broad areas of employment and training, housing, community development, and community services.
For most of the Morial administration, three offices, each headed by its own administrative staff, reported to the Executive Assistant for (or Director of) Human Resources: the Office of Employment Training and Development, the Office of Planning and Community Services, and the Office of Housing and Community Development. Also falling under the umbrella of Human Resources was the Office of Special Assistant to the Mayor, which oversaw the operations of certain Community Services programs and special mayoral projects. The organization (and sometimes the names) of these offices changed a number of times during the Morial administration; the changes, however, appear largely to be the result of staff restructuring due to budget cutbacks rather than to major revisions of the division's activities and responsibilities. (The fluidity of the Division's organization, however, has resulted in overlap among the files of some of the Division's subunits; furthermore, incomplete documentation detailing these changes has hampered description of the records to some degree.)
The Office of Employment Training and Development (also called the Office of Manpower or the Office of Manpower and Economic Development) was responsible for administering employment and training programs funded through the Comprehensive Employment Training Act (CETA) and its successor, the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) and for coordinating and planning other city-sponsored employment and training programs. The office was divided into two units--the Independent Monitoring Unit (IMU), responsible for evaluating the subcontractors and work sites in the CETA program to insure federal compliance, and the Fiscal Unit, responsible for overseeing the expenditure of CETA funds, auditing CETA contracts, and preparing federal reports. The Manpower office was also responsible for oversight of CETA training and for special projects related to housing.
The Office of Housing and Community Development managed and administered the City's Community Development Block Grant program, which provided funding for infrastructure improvements, neighborhood development, housing rehabilitation and various services to low and moderate income persons.
The subject files of the director of the Division of Human Resources are arranged in three subseries: general files, records relating to community development, and records relating to manpower programs. (The subseries of general files ends with two cartons of "unfiled correspondence," as well as miscellaneous material relating to HANO and JTPA found with the unfiled correspondence.) These subject files, in 49 cartons, were maintained by the director's office within the Division of Human Resources. The offices of the Special Assistant to the Mayor and the Administrator of Community Services and their records are described separately.

The Office of Planning and Community Services (often called simply the Community Services Office) administered a wide range of programs designed to provide assistance to individuals or to community groups in the areas of human services, neighborhood revitalization, health, education, special education, human rights and women's issues, citizen volunteer efforts, and information and referral. The office also provided assistance to the Mayor in a number of special projects and task forces. Although the office underwent several organizational restructurings during the Morial administration, its basic programs remained relatively constant.
The office was composed of several major units: Citizens Action Center--itself further divided into the Women's Unit, the Intergroup and Anti-Discrimination Unit (previously called the Human Rights Office), and the Information and Complaint Assistance Unit (including the Answer Desk and the Spanish Answer Desk); VIGOR (Volunteers In Government Of Responsibility)--the city government volunteer program; Arts Coordination--administered through contract with the Arts Council of New Orleans; Neighborhood Planning--responsible for input into planning for and preparation of the city's Community Development Block Grant applications and for liaison with neighborhood organizations.
Community Services was also responsible for a number of long- and short-term special mayoral projects, among them the Clean City Committee, the New Orleans Neighborhood Police Anti-Crime Council (NONPACC), the Special Education project, Complete Count for the 1980 Census, the International Year of the Child Committee (1979, later restructured to become the Anti-Truancy Committee), and the Neighborhood Outreach Program. At various times, the office also handled programs relating to refugees, civil rights, gay and lesbian affairs, and community conflict mediation.
Internal evidence shows that after 1980, while retaining its own administrator, Community Services came under the supervision of the Office of Special Assistant to the Mayor, which utilized Community Services staff and oversaw special mayoral projects, Arts Coordination, the Clean City Committee, and NONPACC. Thus, there is considerable overlap between the records of these two offices (researchers should consult both).
The records are 19 boxes of general subject/correspondence files, alphabetically arranged, that were maintained in the office of the Administrator of Community Services. In addition to correspondence, the files include inter-office memos, minutes, reports, and budgets.

The office of Special Assistant to the Mayor, headed by John A. Pecoul, Jr., was established in late 1980 as part of the Mayor's Division of Human Resources. The Special Assistant assumed oversight of the activities of the Community Services Office (which had its own Administrator and staff) and, in addition, coordinated and supervised a variety of long- and short-term "Mayor's Projects" to which Community Services staff were assigned. Although Pecoul reported directly to the Mayor, his office was carried on the Human Resources Office's budget.
The Community Services programs supervised by Pecoul included the Citizen Action Center, the Human Rights Office, Community Outreach Office, VIGOR, and the Women's Office, all of which dealt in some way with citizen advocacy, counseling, referrals and/or participation in city government.
Pecoul's office was responsible for oversight or supervision of the following long-term Community Services programs:
In addition to these on-going responsibilities, Pecoul's office supervised, organized or participated in various community projects and events:
The records are contained in 24 cartons and arranged in the following series:
Because there is much overlap between the files of the Special Assistant and those of the Community Services Office, researchers should consult both.
