Our Visit (back) to Oakdale Federal Prison

May 2, 2017

Last Friday our team of peer mentors took a trip to the Federal Correctional Facility in Oakdale to speak to men that are preparing to come home. One of our mentors was actually incarcerated at this same facility several years ago, so this a homecoming of sorts, and it was a lovely day. We are so grateful for opportunities to return to the inside to spread what we have learned about the struggles and success strategies for coming home.
