Review for Prison Entrepreneurship Program, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

From my first trip “to prison” I became a believer in change. The possibility of change that is within people. I saw the process of taking what many might say are “bad” people and transforming them into “good” people. In my own heart, I have always believed that there is good in everyone but this program has solidified that. One distinct observation as I have met hundreds of inmates over the past several years is that any one of our children, and maybe even one of us, could easily be sitting in their chair.....wrong place/wrong time? A few bad choices or maybe even one bad choice?
I have maintained contact with several PEP participants after their release and am always so happy to hear that their success stories are continuing on the “outside”.
I believe “the system” is in great need of overhaul but I am encouraged that this program is helping in great ways.
