Reset Minds, Reset Lives
We are so excited to announce that we welcomed our first residents in June of 2021! This has been a very difficult journey, to say the least. It was very hard to find a home that would house at least 5 men, was within our price range, and wass at least 1000 feet from a school or day care and at least 500 feet from a park! After months of tireless and frustrating effort, we did it! We found an apartment, and we moved in on June 1st, 2021!
Now, I would like to tell you about our first approved resident. His name is Tony. He was incarcerated because of a registry violation. His sentence was just one month. Unfortunately, after 8 months, he was still incarcerated. He was sent to prison in September 2020. He had not been able to leave, because he didn’t have a home plan that meets the requirements of the sex offense registry. This is why our services are crucial for so many people. We had room for 4 more men like him – men who needed a second chance to succeed at life – and we were on our way to being completely full at our first location!
While this apartment was not quite as large as we were hoping, we were so excited to finally start serving men who needed us. We have since received tons of donations that included furniture, clothes, and kitchen items. We were off to a great start, and I am very excited to provide continued updates about our progress.
Thank you for your continued thoughts, prayers, and monetary and in-kind donations. We could not do this without supporters like you!
