"To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you." - Lewis B. Smedes

Most of you know I have been concerned about inmate education, community perception and returning citizen treatment post their release for well over a decade. (returning citizens are also known as ex-offenders.) Far too often, the life they typically endure once released remains characterized as "A Life Sentence." The previously incarcerated are confronted with discrimination when seeking employment, housing, food aid, voting rights, and in some states, their record can NEVER be expunged even if they could afford to pay the fees.

My mission and the mission of Mission to Mobilization and Released for Life (501c3) is to help individuals, organizations and communities erase the stigma of incarceration while strengthening social bonds that lead to productive and healthy citizenship for all.  We accomplish this through...

  • Inmate and returning citizen education
  • Inmate Art Curation and Promotion
  • Community Workshops
  • Resource Partnerships
  • Theatrical Events and Discussion
  • Family Network Training and Support
  • Returning Citizen Friendly Church Registry
  • Returning Citizen Friendly Employer List
  • Advocacy and Awareness for Increased Receptivity

Mission Testimonial

The “Mission” is to help change the way the nation sees returning citizens. This can only be accomplished with the assistance of people like yourself: educators, artists, business owners, caregivers, poets, parents, grandparents and extended family.

I have been providing workshops for incarcerated persons and returning citizens for over 17 years. My experience and commitment equal my courage to stand for TRUTH in an environment of diminishing worth and marginalization.

Please lend your support to these efforts, so we can assist these individuals who have served their time and are desirous of a positive new life post-incarceration.

Every dollar donated to the mission will go directly toward covering the expenses associated with workshop materials, meeting space, communication costs, travel expenses for myself and other team members traveling to correctional facilities and speaking to those currently and formerly incarcerated and members in our community. These rewards are guaranteed, and you will enjoy the benefits of your investment.

You can make it possible to move this mission forward! Bring a new level of hope and change to our communities.

Please take a moment to:

1) Register to provide a small monthly, recurring donation which will provide a foundation to ensure that we achieve this “Mission Possible.”
There are three reward categories: $10.00 per month, $20.00 per month and $50.00 per month patrons. You may think that what you have to offer won’t make a difference, but you’re wrong. Your input in our collective work will bring hope and change lives, families, and communities.

2)
Visit this page occasionally to see content updates highlighting positive stories, ideas, artwork, videos clips, short films, etc. that speak to liberate and encourage returning citizens in this country.

3) Share this page with your friends
and loved ones, sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers, uncles and aunts concerned about justice and the well-being of returning citizens who have served their time. Put a link to this page on your social media--Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Help us reach more people who understand the urgency of the mission to provide resources and receptivity into the lives of our returning citizens.



What will be the indicator that the mission was accomplished?

On December 31, 2020, we will look at what God has done on behalf of those considered the least, last and the lost. I’m just faith-filled enough to believe it will be done and pray you will join me!

"He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”  Matthew 17:20

When we change the way, the nation sees returning citizen - the nation's behavior will be changed! I look forward to seeing what is to come!
