Target Area: Rebuilding Lives After Incarceration!

Rebuilding Lives After Incarceration!

 

Spoken Word!

 

At Target Area we work to build relationships so that lives can be rebuilt after incarceration!

 

The rate of recidivism in Illinois is up to 51.7% but for Target Area’s statewide CSAC program, the rate is down to 19%!

 

We realize the importance of care when working in the community and we work to educate our legislators about the struggles of our people!

 

Guest Speaker: Dr. Jacobus Numdoe speaking about the vital role the church can play in restoring the community.

 

Panel Discussion where each panelist gave their thoughts about the contributors to recidivism.

 

Mentioned was the lack of stabilization and accountability;

 

Employment, education, housing, and other resources are a major need for those returning to the community from prison.

 

We must do what it takes to raise awareness and effect positive change.

Kindness Campaign!

When you are committing KIND acts to people it will be noticed and people will support.

I have been sharing updates heavily about The KINDNESS Campaign’s outreach and engagement to people on the streets
Someone saw the post (Catherine Lockwood) and shared the post that someone else saw( Christian Harris, Owner of MaidPro Oak Park) who contacted a friend, Saeng, who is the owner of Na Siam Thai Restaurant 6851 W North Ave Oak Park, IL 60302 (708) 613-4447.

Saeng provided full Thai meals, nicely packed, individually, easy for sharing.

I am humbly grateful to receive support from strangers, better yet, KIND people. Being blessed to be a blessing to other people. KINDNESS touches everyone.

The KINDNEDS Campaign is a movement powered by a uniquely diverse coalition. No boundaries or agenda but KINDNESS.

Na Siam Thai Restaurant has good, fresh authentic Thai selections. Feel free to dine or order delivery. Or, call/stop by and thank Saeng for supporting and loving people.
