Las Vegas (KTNV) — Hope for prisoners acknowledged former prisoners and those who helped them along the way at a luncheon on Friday.
Inspiring stories of men and women who successfully reintegrated into the community were shared at the event. The recognized people have never re-offended and are now having a positive impact on those around them.
Hope for Prisoners has worked with more than 3,800 people.
Founder and CEO John Ponder said:
“And the recidivism rate is so low that other jurisdictions across the country are calling for a copy of the model created here in Nevada.”
The event was also livestreamed to 21 prisons across the United States with the aim of sharing the success stories of others like themselves.
