Crystal's Return To The World

Organized by: Crystal Stephans

Crystal's Photo


My name is Crystal Stephens, I am 32 years old and have been incarcerated for the past 10 years. During this time I have used my time wisely to better myself and to learn the skills needed to be a productive member of society once I am released. I have attended many classes, meetings, seminars, and all other resources that were made available to me. I hold a paralegal certification, Associates in Applied Arts, and I am 12 credits away from an Associate in Liberal Studies degree.
My wish is to embrace what lies ahead and succeed. I have been given a second chance and I have worked to gain that knowledge I will need to lead a wholesome, hard working life. I do not take this opportunity lightly; I recognize that I will have many hurdles to overcome. But I have the motivation and determination to be a productive member of society.
I have been requesting that I be allowed to use the work release program here where I am incarcerated. Unfortunately I have not been allowed to seek employment (due to unanswered pleas, not because of my actions) but I continue to seek help from those that are appointed over me to allow me to work. The truth is I fear that by the time I am allowed to do so I will not have enough saved to be able to get started. That’s why I’m asking for the help that I will need to be able to start my journey.
The 7,000 dollars I am seeking will give me the opportunity to provide the basics for myself for 3 months while I can find employment. Included is rent, transportation, food, clothing and utilities that I will need to get started. I know this may be a large sum, but I will be starting from the beginning and will need it to be able to get the necessities I will need for a good start.
Finally, I will end with this. Thank you for taking your time to hear my plea. If you don’t contribute I hope you add me to your prayers and well wishes. If you do contribute, thank you for your generous donation no matter how small. It means a lot to me that you are willing to help. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Crystal
