Changing Perspectives

George had been a hustler his whole life until the law finally caught up with him. He knew that something needed to shift, and when he finally became willing to change, he had a new perspective on life. George knew the reentry program he was referred to was not going to be easy, but he quickly accepted the rules that would strengthen his character.

Jumping Right In

George decided to take advantage of all the things the program offered. He quickly learned to be resilient under pressure, pay attention to detail, work as a team, and be tolerant of other people’s views. Patience was a huge contributor to George’s success. Instead of finding flaws in others around him, he embraced their uniqueness and learned valuable lessons from the people he encountered. George sought out people who truly wanted recovery and rehabilitation, and stayed close to that crowd. Through his family’s support George is motivated to be the best version of himself and find true happiness.
