There would be people for cooking, teaching, nursing, ect. There was probly people who helped the former slaves find jobs too. People would help by getting them to learn to read and wright. Chefs would also help them learn how to prepare meals. We researched about people who would feed, bath, help walk, and do other things for older or disabled people. There would be people like that in the Freeman's Burea too.
