As I look back at the time I did in prison,
I have to express my appreciation for my mentor that wrote me along the way during those days. She helped me map out my goals for my reentry and for a plan to reenter the community.
I was fortunate enough to have my family drop me off at New Freedom. Though I was filled with nerves, I quickly realized how very peaceful it was. The first thing I remember on that first day, which was a Friday, was how amazing the food was! I felt like the luckiest person. They provided me with everything that I needed… clothes, food, a bed and most importantly accountability. I felt like I was staying in a resort.
