Imagine saying sorry, changing your behavior through insight, and living each day being a better person, but no one ever hears you? These inmates would like you to see the progress they have made and publicly say sorry without re-victimizing anyone further.
If anyone has ever been to prison, one thing is for sure, you don't want to go back. Having a solid parole plan takes organizations and community support. The person in prison may be ready to come out and participate in the working class, but without a good plan the parole board is not going to allow them to be released.
Take time to find your local resources. If a person gets out after 30 years in prison, do they even know that the resources available to them require email and a cell phone. If your person is seeking a parole plan, you could help them by giving them your local 211 resources so they do not go back due to destitute. There are a lot of plans you can find online, but they have to be personalized. Inmates do not always have access to the internet, so you would give them a blank draft of what a plan needs to have but let them fill it in.
The process of helping with a plan takes about a year. Everything must be sent through the snail mail (USPS). Once the inmate have a clear plan and it has been accepted, after the person is sent back to the streets, they will have that plan to help them in times of need.
