God is truly blessing True Freedom Enterprises. On March 1st, we officially launched this new initiative at the Northeast Reintegration Center, a female prison located on East 30th in Cleveland. This program is doing more that taking women from the prison and placing them in job-training programs in companies across Cleveland, it is restoring honor and dignity to broken lives and setting them on the path to successful re-entry.
Seven young ladies are working daily at the cafe at the Virgil Brown building, and by God’s grace, three of our clients are now working at the Marble Room owned by Frank and Malisse Sinito. These women are doing more than a job, they are preparing for careers. Below is a conversation between Mike Swiger and the ladies that are working at the Marble Room, just moments before their first day on the job:
“Mr. Swiger, you’re going to stay with us the whole time, aren’t you?” Tiffany asked.
“No,” he answered. “You don’t need me. You earned your way here. We trust you.”
Tears welled up in her eyes. “We’re gonna make you proud.”
“You already have,” I said.
Thank you, True Freedom Partners, for all that you have done to make this day a reality. And praise God for His great grace. Our prayer is that the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction will allow us to expand this initiative to other prisons in a timely manner. May God transform many lives for the glory of His Name.
