Getting out of prison is just the beginning. Rebuilding your life requires hard work, perseverance and the spirit of a champion. It's never easy, but OurJourney believes that the same inner strength that got you through prison can lead you past the challenges of freedom down the path to self-sufficiency. We also believe that sometimes even the strongest among us just need a little help getting started.
OurJourney's Essential Services program provides professional, personal and profound assistance to any returning citizen in North Carolina who wants to gain the tools and skills necessary to rebuild a life after incarceration.
OurJourney Director of Essential Services Tanisha Reed has a BA in Criminal Justice, a Master's in Human and Social Services and, even more importantly, the desire to use her skills and talents to help bring out the best in every returning citizen she meets.
