I met Steve in Detroit. He is going through the system waiting for his turn to get housing. He says it’s a process and it takes time.

Steve spent 16 years in prison. He came home and started to educate himself. He now has a real estate license and is going to college to get a law degree.

Even people who have had a challenging past can change to make a better future. I know because I am one of them.

    I have a son who will be coming out of prison in June 2010. He has Hep C which was identified when he first went in. A prison doctor told him his choice was to get clean or die. My son has been clean for more than 4 years now and we, as his family, plan to help him stay clean. We will also support him to keep him off the street and help him get a job. If we as a society don't help our ex-offenders get clean, turn their lives around, maintain their dignity and get decent jobs our country will never be free of crime, homelessness, poverty and despair! Too much money is spent by large corporations on their CEO's and too little on the “little or invisible” people! Any group of people is judged by history by how they care for the poorest and most fragile of their population!
