Our society has an unfortunate tendency of not forgetting people’s past. Too many people judge a book by its cover, many times not allowing people who made a simple mistake one time the ability to move one and fix their lives. The Rock Found offers the opportunity to exactly these people. We believe that everyone should have an equal opportunity to become better. That’s why we offer help for released prisoners.
Help For Released Prisoners
Prison is something that will change a person forever. In prison, you live a different life, a different culture. The laws are eat or be eaten, gain respect or be disrespected. In the outside world, culture is very different. This transition can be extremely difficult and for some mentally scarring. Many released prisoners have had to seek psychological attention in order to be able to get passed the mental struggles that sometimes come with spending time in prison.
The vast majority of people who go to prison and are released end up back in prison. This is not necessarily because they’re bad. Some people are forced by circumstance to commit crimes. Sometimes out of financial necessity or out of peer pressure. We at The Rock Found want to show them another way to live. We want to allow them to get a degree, learn a skill and use that to make money to support themselves and their families. With their new found skills released prisoners can now change their conditions and better themselves. This is why help for released prisoners is so important.
