Women who have stepped outside the law and have paid their debt to society, are often still punished, as they try to rebuild their relationships and their lives. (Jump to the podcast.)
And, while they may have since made peace with themselves, their Creator, and sometimes, even those they’ve wronged, communities have a tendency to shun and look down upon these ladies because they served time.
When you add to the rejection the big challenges ex-offenders face: employment, housing, finances and health, it becomes easy to understand, how the rehabilitated-journey, can be a hard-fought one.
Founder and executive director of Leaving the Cocoon, Vicki Harvey-Helgesen, joins us on the show and shares the love and compassion she feels toward ex-offenders and lays out the ideas and plans that will help lead them to a brighter tomorrow.
Help a woman rebuild. Do what you can to help this wonderful cause.
