“With God’s help and the help of so many people who have and are still pouring into my life, I feel led to help guide others to productive lifestyles. I am honored to serve on the Men and Women of Purpose Board of Directors as we strengthen families by helping incarcerated and formerly incarcerated men and women acclimate into doing “life” after doing “time. I love Richmond!”
