Once upon a time, during a pandemic, the timing seemed perfect to start Reentry St. Louis - an idea that had been mulled over for several years. It's been a winding road to get where we are today - a legitimate 501(c)(3). Although we are in our infancy, we have big dreams just like the countless folks that have been housed in correctional facilities. The following are just a few of the future goals of the people that were, or still are, housed in correctional facilities:
"I'd like to get my driver's license." "I want to be a teacher."
"I just want to get a job so that I'm not poor." "I want to be a really good father."
"I want to own my own construction company." "I'd like to start a nonprofit."
"I want to open a hair salon." "I'd like to program computers."
"I'd like to find - you know, "The One" - that I spend the rest of my life with, like you and Mr. Y."
"I want to go to college. What kind of scores do I need to get scholarships?"
“I want to be a law-abiding, employed member of society so that I can give back what I took.”
