EVENT DATE Sep 30, 2016
My husband and I Thomas and Laura Jackson run a Facebook page and a website called Cons Can Care. We currently have over 5000 members in the United state and even some in foreign countries. We have an amazing group of members who want to truly make a difference. Our organization is based out of Maryland. Though we would love to see it go nationwide
Our Mission Is to help inmates that are being released back into our communities find resources for work, housing, clothing, food, and other things they may need such as medications etc. So that they are not subjected to go back to their old ways as a means of survival. We also have resources for the familys of inmates that are struggling thru an incarceration as well as anyone in General who needs our help.
My husband Thomas has created this amazing concept to help make a difference and help communities everywhere. This program will also give society a chance to see if program like this is available there would be less repeat offenders in our system. We all make mistakes, we are merely human. Give these men/women a fighting chance to become productive members of the community again.
The correctional Departments nationwide have no real programs outside of halfway houses for these inmates being released. Maryland for instance releases inmates with $50 and leaves that inmate to find his/her way to where ever they may call home.Unfortunately this is why so many fail and become repeat offenders.
We need help raising funds to get this program off the ground. We need to get our 501c3 status, hire an attorney, and hire grant writers. We have set a minimal goal of $1000.00 to get us started. As many of you know a startup of this magnitude will take much more. If you are unable to help us financially but have experience in grant writing and would like to volunteer your time or services, we would definitely love to hear from you.
Any donation monetary, time, or services is greatly appreciated.
Let's make this program a reality and available to all the inmates being released back into our communities nationwide.
