RICHMOND, Va. (Tracy Smith) (WRIC) — A new community center hopes to help former inmates rehabilitate and re-integrated into their communities.
The REAL Life Community Center is set to open its doors on Main Street in December. Day after day in the city of Richmond, someone is put behind bars for committing a crime. And day after a day people are released from jail, with nowhere to go and no help to navigate their new found freedom.
“You must have somewhere for them to go to continue their treatment the aftercare is critical,” Sheriff C.T. Woody said.
That’s where REAL Life comes in, it is a non-profit that helps inmates transition from life behind bars.
