‘Ready for Resurrection’

Four Project TURN students have since been released from prison, including a woman who was released on Easter Sunday.

“I’m getting ready for a new life, a resurrection,” she told her classmates. “And all of you are a part of it. You treated me like a person, like I was worth something. And now I plan to live like that’s the truth.”

She is currently working as a case manager for a non-profit that helps women re-enter the community after release from prison.
