Review for Friends of Island Academy, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I Am A 24 Year Old African American Male & 1st Time Convicted Felon. After Spending 16 Months On Rikers Island & Finally Being Released, I'be Been On A Path Of Struggle & Discouragement. Up Until I Met With Messiah Ramkissoon, A Facilitator Of Friends Of Island Academy Whom Brought Me In To Their Organization Allowing To Meet The Warm Welcoming & Caring Staff, They In Turn Granted Me Access To All Their Jail Releass & Social Services. Since Then I've Been Given The Strength & Support To Continue Tackling The Hardships Of Being A Statistic As Well As Overcoming My Immediate Obstacles With Their Help. With Their Aid In Employment, Housing, & Etc. I Have Been Able To Start Standing On My Feet & Beat The Odds. Thanks To Them I Know I Have Their Continuous Support To Keep Striving To Do Better & Become A Greater Man.
