Give to New Paths Forward

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Meet Damon Rodriguez, Alisa Morrison, and Otis Johnson. Together, they spent a combined 57.8 years in prison.

When they came home, Fortune helped them find new paths forward.

Damon shares: “Coming to an organization where there’s help for you…, where you meet people who were in prison, or come from the same environment and understand, made me feel like I can do this, maybe I can make it.”

Each year, you play an important role in helping The Fortune Society support incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people’s successful reentry into the community. This year, you gave hope, opportunity, and a safe place to over 6,000 people. We sincerely thank you.

As we approach the end of the year, we invite you to renew your commitment. Watch and listen to Damon, Alisa, and Otis’ stories through the video above, and encourage others to join our cause in helping people transform their lives.

Then, join us on #GivingTuesday, November 29, a day celebrating philanthropy and generosity. Your time, talent and resources is invaluable to us, and deeply appreciated.

Together, we can continue doing transformative work, giving formerly incarcerated individuals new paths forward.
