SUCCESS IS A JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION
I hope that this site is helpful with assisting felons and others re-entering society. It was the help from my family, friends and service providers that helped me. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to those resources. Everyone benefits when a felon becomes a taxpayer. In Kentucky, one in 100 adults are behind bars (2008-), one in 35 adults are in prison or under supervision. The recidivism rate is 29.50% (2008-). When recidivism is cut by 1% the taxpayer saves dollars and a family member is saved. In order to maintain and grow this website, we have to ask for assistance. Please, contribute what you can.
