Who or what inspires to do the work you do in Jobs Partnership?
I’m inspired to do the work I do because of what God did for me. I know first hand that God gives continual “ second chances.” My mind was “incarcerated” and it was God’s Love that freed me. I believe I’m obligated to serve anyone wanting a second chance.

My goal for the future of Jobs Partnership, is to help the program expand nationwide. Jobs Partnership provides an excellent framework for men and women transitioning from incarceration to independence.
