Each of the individuals who participated in GOALS has their own unique story, but one thing they all had in common was taking the first step to writing their own success story.

Here are their stories...


“The best decision I made after being freed was contacting the program and becoming a participant. The counselors involved with this program make it their zealous journey to help, assist, and enhance a person’s life. The program instills tools … to give each person self-esteem and purpose.”

Ronnie had big plans for his life, but a few things stood in the way of launching his career. He was over 60, had limited work experience, and a criminal record. Through GOALS, Ronnie gained the skills, training, and support he needed to take the right steps forward.
