Nearly Two Years out and counting.......

Meet Dante' E. Dante' came to Forgiveness House via Whiteville Correctional Facility. He graduated our program after 6 months of taking care of business, working long, hard hours, searching for Spiritual stability, and overcoming the obstacles all parolees encounter. He visited recently and quietly celebrated his "One Year Out" anniversary. Since leaving Forgiveness House in November 2007, Dante' has moved into a downtown apartment and has retained his job of nearly one year. Dante' realizes that the recovery process will take years to accomplish, however, he now has the confidence of knowing that he will win at life.  He has enrolled at Southwest Community College, and expect to be treated one day by Doctor E. We know he can do all things with Christ who strengthens him.

A lighter moment

Men form lasting friendships during their stay

Meet Michael S. Michael is a recent graduate from Forgiveness House. He came to us from the Shelby County Penal Farm in April 2008. He stayed the minimum number of weeks necessary, and moved in as a roomate to several Christian men sharing a residence. He has maintained his job since May and is on the verge of being hired on as a full time employee. Michael is just another exception to the stereotypical inmate who is released from prison that opts back to the old way and old neighborhoods. Michael found God and spiritual peace while still incarcerated. With that battle behind him, he focused on his objectives and worked his plan, and moved out right on time. He will be a model for others to follow. It can be done,

Meet Joe Moore. Joe Mo, as he is called, served 28 calander years in several State prisons. I met Joe on one of my first Kairos visits to WTSP in 2001. Joe was a steady member of Christ's community at West High for all the years I knew him and he was paroled in Feb 2009. He is a strong spiritual leader, a mentor to some our residents while he stayed, and gave his testimony at Memphis area churches. Joe was blessed with a job shortly after release, and has undergone hip replacement surgury at the VA hospital in late 2009. His re-couperation is proceeding well and he gives all the glory to God for his successes. He is pictured on the right with Kairos brothers Steve Jackson and Gary Samuels of HeartSong Church, shortly before returning to Nashville  to join his waiting family.

Please help us. We receive modest funding from the TN Dept. of Corrections, and this project is also funded, in part, by the TN Dept. of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. We rely heavily on contributions we receive from you. Statistically, these men will return to prison within 24-36 months without our help. God Bless! You may use credit cards also on the Paypal donation button.
