the project

What I hope to accomplish from this project is to help establish those who were formerly incarcerated, gain strong educational and career objectives, so that they may become fruitful and law abiding citizens.


the steps

  • Provide Strategic Direction.
  • Most projects are awash in documents providing direction.
  • Gain Alignment.
  • Build and Use Credibility.
  • Find out obstacles in advance, and prepare to tackle them ahead of time.

why we're doing it

As a younger sister who was raised with my brothers being incarcerated, I understand the impact that it can have on the family dynamic. My passion for wanting to help others grew from those who were coming home after being incarcerated. When realizing that there wasn’t a lot of help or resources to aid them get back into society so they can better help themselves and make the change they desire to have.
