I meet the founder Reverend Carmen Warner Robbins when I was in jail being sentenced to prison. After I did a 2 year sentenced Reverend Carmen Warner Robbins came back into my life with a vision and a dream. She shared that dream with me stating that she wanted to know what women being released from jail and prison needed upon their release. I shared with her the needs that I was facing since I was just released and we began to serve others with the same needs. And Welcome Home took off from there! Welcome Home has been so instrumental in my life that I have since moved from San Diego to Fresno where I have started Welcome Home Central Valley and serve women and men the prison in Central California while networking with Welcome Home ministries.

My experience with Welcome Home is one of a professional capacity. I became part of the team approx. 2.5 years ago and it has changed my life both professionally and personally. I have never worked for an organization where you could be so free to be who you are and share with other's the awesomeness of God. I have seen ladies lives changed dramtically as they have come to know the Lord as well as experience the extended family they acquire when they become a Welcome Home woman. Just as the Lord says, "I will never leave nor forsake you" that is what the ladies experience with Welcome Home. Even if they make a mistake, Welcome Home will always be there.

As part of a community outreach/advocacy project for our graduate counseling program my cohorts and I conducted research on various non-profits working to assist women in the criminal justice system. This included women currently incarcerated, formerly incarcerated and/or on probation. We were impressed with the effectiveness achieved by the peer counselors with their abilities to motivate and inspire change among the women they served. After observing first hand the work they do among these women we are committed to help them in their mission.
