MUST BE 18 OR OLDER - MUST READ TERMS OF SERVICE

Many inmates need housing when they come home. If you would be willing to help someone locate a residence upon exiting prison, please visit Inmate Housing Profiles.

When I’m talked about aloud, and don't feel shame in what I do.

and the positive outweigh negative, like I finally got the clue.

When my dreams are finally met, and no longer what I pursue

and they speak of me in kindness, no matter the color of their hue.

When the homeless are not crying, and their children are well-fed

and we celebrate a life that’s living, and not when it's just dead.

When we reach down and pull up what is said our fellow man

and “history repeats itself” is something that we all outran.

When I can smile because I know every suffering has it’s end

and extend my hand sincerely not in a way that's half pretend.

When I can leave my doors open and not fear external fright

and wake up without harm; everything will be alright.
