We have heard from those who have reentered and been redeemed, even one (Rachel) who has transitioned to a life calling aiding those reentering and revitalizing as she has. But, what of those who’s life’s passion is solely wanting to see lives changed, willing to do it consistently within the system as well as after reentry, and not even get paid for it?
This is the story of Bill Curry, a state awarded VOLUNTEER chaplain and incarcerated veteran non profit program creator, who works alongside CoG to see it’s mission fulfilled by working with inmates starting where they are (in the prisons) and continuing with them all the way through the reentry process.
It’s not glamorous, its not easy, and it takes years to gain the experience, and trust, with the inmates to do it well. And as Bill testifies passionately, it is the difference of who is running the programs more than the why and how that gives you any chance of empowering those reentering to succeed.
