Allen was a hardworking man and held many jobs throughout his life working as the Director of Youth Services for the City of Bridgeport, Hall Neighborhood House, Read Elementary School and Mel Hart Appliance Store, to name a few. His employment at Hall and the City of Bridgeport provided him the opportunity to pursue his passion of working with and mentoring the youth of Bridgeport.
