Hello my name is Christa, and I am so Thankful for the opportunity that Center for Living and Learning gave me. When I started at CLL, I had just got out of a drug program with no job skills or even the skills to work in a social environment. All I had known for 17 yrs was the life of an addict, the streets and in and out of prison. CLL gave me the skills to be able to work in a social and professional atmosphere and taught me how to work and be accountable in a work environment and be able to go out into society and find a job and get that job. With skills and the training they provided for me, I have had some very successful position in my career. Yes career. The skills CLL gave me, I was able to move to a different state and obtain a position working in the medical field. So now I am helping patients and giving back what was taught to me thru CLL. Thank You for all you have done for me and the skills your organization taught me.

I and others live our days without being able to acquire the skills for living on the outside. Yes, im a convict but i have began the actual steps that repentance leads too. It has been more difficut than i envisioned but because of the Center For Living And Learning i have been able to learn what i was unable to, from an amazing group of people that patiently work together to give give give. This place is a god send. From the first day to the second day and on and on they are steaddast in the works that they do...helping people change their live around.

The Center for Living and Learning provides real help to real people who are trying to reestablish their independence and stability often following involvement in the criminal justice system. Unlike many other groups that provide training, the Center helps people make the leap from training to employment -- a critical foundation for success. Not only does the Center work with individuals, but its director, Alex, is involved in statewide and county-level advocacy to change the policies that put barriers in the way of success for people leaving the criminal justice system. Three cheers for the Center and for Alex! Please keep up the good work!!

CLL does an amazing job at bridging two sides of this sector: service provision and policy/advocacy. There are few organizations that are able to embrace and encompass both pieces of this important work to improve the lives of formerly incarcerated people and enhance public safety through reducing recidivism. CLL produces excellent results in terms of turning around the lives of their many clients, but also makes a tremendous effort to organize and inform other stakeholders, as well as engage with elected officials and other decision makers to achieve the changes in the system that are so desperately needed.

I serve as a Board Member at the Center for Living and Learning (CLL) because I have confidence in the programs available to the formally incarcerated, former substance abusers, or anyone who has a barrier to employment. Programs include but are not limited to the Apprenticeship Program: 12-18 month paid on-the-job training opportunity. I am proud to say that 92% of those with a criminal record have not been re-incarcerated during their apprenticeship, and develop confidence and self-esteem, enabling them to, upon completion of the program, transition directly to regular employment. What does all this mean? It means an individual is now able to live a healthy and productive life, standing proud and tall in front of their children, family and friends. The Center for Living and Learning is what I like to call a community re-investment program.
