PLEASE HELP SUPPORT REDUCTION OF PRISON RECIDIVISM

THE STORY:

HI EVERYONE!

THE PURPOSE OF THIS FUNDRAISER IS TO RAISE FUNDS TO ASSIST IN ERADICATING THE RECIDIVISM OF EX-OFFENDERS, WITH A FOCUS ON MENTAL ILLNESS.

FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE WITH MY SON, WHO HAS SUFFERED FROM MENTAL ILLNESS WHILE INCARCERATED, HAS SHARPENED MY FOCUS ON THE NEED FOR THIS SERVICE. I WANT TO HAVE THE RESOURCES TO PUSH HARDER EVERY DAY TO BRING ASSISTED OUTPATIENT (AOT) PROGRAMS, AS WELL HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES TO RECENTLY RELEASED INMATES IN MISSISSIPPI FOR THE DEMAND OF OUTPATIENT ASSISTANCE IS RISING IN MANY SOUTHERN STATES.

OUR LOVE ONES SIT IN JAIL FOR THREE TO FOUR YEARS AWAITING SENTENCING AND/OR TREATMENT. MY HEART-DRIVEN PASSION AS A MOTHER FIGHTING FOR HER ONLY SON PUTS ME IN A POSITION TO DEMAND CHANGE IN A DOWNWARD SPIRALING PRISON SYSTEM....INMATES LIKE MY SON NEED EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL SUPPORT, AS WELL AS POSITIVE LEADERSHIP.

THAT'S THE ONLY SOLUTION!!!

I STARTED WORKING WITH MENTALLY ILL CONSUMERS OVER 15 YEARS AGO USING MY OWN PERSONAL FUNDING. THE OUTCOMES HAVE BEEN OUTSTANDING. BUT ITS JUST NOT ENOUGH TO MOVE FORWARD.

THIS IS A NATIONWIDE PROBLEM THAT AFFECTS EVERYONE. MY FUNDRAISING GOAL WILL ALLOW EXPANSION OF MY PROGRAM ACROSS SOUTHERN STATES AND OPEN POSITIVE DOORS FOR MANY RECENTLY RELEASED INMATES. I HOPE MY CAUSE INSPIRES EVERYONE TO REALIZE HOW LOVED ONES WHO HAVE BEEN INCARCERATED FOR SO LONG WITH MINOR CHARGES ARE MISSED AND TRULY LOVED BY FAMILY MEMBERS.

IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE! PLEASE HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
