Build self-reliance for second chances
Welcome people who have made a mistake and paid the price, back into our community.
Incarceration, a frightening and isolating experience, happens disproportionately to African American men and can destroy bright futures. A conviction for robbery swallowed Earl Miller's college football dreams, leading him through the prison pipeline for five years.
After his release, Earl vowed to help other men on their way out of prison, to never go back. He now runs our Amicus Men of Rafiki program, working with inmates preparing to leave incarceration and staying connected with them with mentoring, assistance with basic needs, employment and housing leads. Of his life's work, Earl's abiding philosophy is, "It's time to live, not die."
