Bridges to Change
A group of guests from Bridges to Change told their stories. All of the mentors and administrators from this organization are ex-felons. The director - Chuck, the program director – Doug, and two clients – John an Pete joined Ruth in a discussion about the value of a mentor program for folks when released. Assistance in housing, job hunting and connecting with the family and community can make a significant difference as folks begin new lives in the community.
