Empowering Ex-offenders...Promotes a Safer Community
A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER
We continue to provide services to our clients in an effort to reduce recidivism and promote a safer community. However, we could not reach our goals without the partnerships and collaborations from agencies in the community.
Through ongoing financial support of local foundations, the in-kind headquarter facility donated by Lingo Memorial Church of God in Christ, and the support of many other foundations, individuals, volunteers, churches, and organizations...we can continue to work towards our mission and vision that ex-offenders experience a successful return to the community.
Our partnerships and collaborations will continue to expand and grow as we continue to strengthen our services. It is a reality that we cannot do this alone and we look forward to the continued support from the community.
It is my ultimate vision that CRAM expand to other counties in Pennsylvania, and eventually expand to other states. Using CRAM as a model for other areas to create quality services for ex-offenders will provide a "win win" situation for the client and the community.
My most recent endeavor is JEG Paralegal & Training & Consulting Services, LLC which was incorporated in July 2012. This office is located at 597 Division Street, Harrisburg, PA. JEG, LLC is designed to address various needs in the community at a "lower cost" than normal. A special focus is placed on paralegal services provided under the leadership, direct overview and supervision of an attorney. I look forward to many years of providing services for the "Betterment of the Community".
