I am going to post an ask, which I rarely do. I am at a point that I can no longer work for Free! I need to earn an income, and, unfortunately, this ministry has not brought in enough for even a small salary. I do this ministry by myself. This does not help with going after grants. I don't have enough to qualify for most grants, nor do I know anyone who can help me write them.
I have a housing plan, written by a man who was in prison and came to my classes at Clayton Transitional Center; it has his name on it. I will attach that plan for all to read. If I had a hotel or some housing, I could implement that program. God put another thought into my mind. If we had the donations and help, we could also advocate for those who get out and have a burden with a long probation period, as well as, those who are wrongly convicted. Every year we hear of many who are released that serve 20+ years that were innocent. Movies have been made about these men! That breaks my heart!!
How awesome would it be if we had housing and transportation for these men upon release. Wat if we also had mental health services, jobs, and whatever else these men would need upon release. Not only would it reduce the prison expense for Georgia, which runs about $1.5 Billion per year, but it may also help save a family! How can we want success for our own families, without wanting that for other families! I don't want to be called a Hypocrite. This work is the best job I have ever had. I don't want to stop, and we will soon be able to resume our prison work. I am asking all who view this website and my Facebook page to let others know so that we can raise the necessary funds to effect real Change for men coming out of prison!! God Bless!
