Free at last and fully prepared to reenter society are, unfortunately, not two parts of a whole when it comes to American jails and prisons. Having completed the designated term for one's sentence, the punishment should be over, right?
Absolutely! Positive Transitioning is collecting donations in order to assemble reentry bags filled with essential items for returning citizens. We will be purchasing all the necessary items for a sustainable beginning beyond the institutional confines. The goal is that a positive returner will have an altogether positive transition which will in turn impact our communities in a positive way. Thoughtful impressions at the individual level will, in turn, make a difference for all citizens. To be the spark is to provide aid to those who need it most. Each dollar counts and the contributions will go on to make the difference sought after in response to mass incarceration.
