"Life After Inc's core concept is focused on empowering formerly incarcerated individuals with a series of standard and best practices, designed to promote employment and housing opportunities, while successfully socially integrating back into society; with the ultimate purpose of being capable of sustaining themselves and their families. Through joint initiatives, Life After Inc. will work on developing a database of solid companies and housing Management companies, willing to give ex-offenders not only opportunities for employment, but also adequate affordable housing. By leveraging social goodwill, we can hope to change public perception of ex-offenders from the stigma of being a 'social predator', to that of productive members of society, with the end goal being to build strong communities of successfully reformed citizens."
OUR LONG TERM GOAL is to eventually get a housing facility SIMILAR to, but not exactly like, a transitional or halfway house. The difference is Life After's mission will be to intake recently released individuals (THAT ARE INTERESTED IN MAKING REAL CHANGES) through a 90 day in-house program that teaches LIFE skills. How to fill out an application, open a bank account, shop for a house,apartment, or car..., learn the difference between associates, acquaintances, friends, co-workers, and family...and the ways to associate with them all. Learn how the world views you and how you can deal with and/or avoid negative confrontations with any or all of the above. After long periods of incarceration, these skills are no longer learned by ex-offenders, they have to be taught. I BELIEVE THE KEY TO BREAKING THE CYCLE OF RECIDIVISM, is ATTEMPTING to change the 'point-of-view' AND the perception of what an ex-offender thinks he/she can or can not do to maintain being a productive member of society.
