Give Second   Chances

Rehabilitation Begins On The Inside

When Returning Citizens choose to change their lives, learn basic skills, and begin to plan for a life on the outside. Upon release, R4 provides positive social connections and the resources needed to become productive law abiding citizens. 

The Vision of R4 is to Change Lives.

R4 transforms the lives of those who were formally incarcerated, who want another chance at becoming productive law-abiding citizens. 

We work to ensure returning citizens, both male and female become and stay both physically and mentally healthy. This population is often considered the Lost, the Last and the Least desirable. Most return to children, spouses and loved ones they left behind, but some have lost their social support systems and any genuine work they may have had.

Whom Do We Help?

Formally Incarcerated


law-abiding citizens.

It is imperative that this population is afforded the opportunity to live productive lives and become law abiding citizens if that is their choice.

Children impacted by incarceration.

By adopting the Gretna Elementary school, where a portion of the children is impacted by incarceration.  

Veterans who are Returning Citizens.

A large percentage of these Veterans are also homeless or at-risk for homelessness, and many others face such challenges as finding work and reintegrating into society.

Help The Lost, the Last and the Least desirable.

Meet Flemon Franklin McNutt:

An Inmate Who Survived COVID 19

Franklin has been incarcerated for the majority of his life.  He begin his life of crime at the age of 18, he is now 52 years old. On March 27, this year, 45 days before his release, Franklin was admitted to the hospital with COVID 19.  His Federal Correctional Institution were one of the hardest hit with the virus. 


Franklin was placed on a ventilator for 16 days and had to be revived twice.  Rumors spread throughout the compound that he had passed away. There were no next of kin; therefore all of his friends reached out to me to find out if it was true.  Both his parents are deceased and he has not had any contact with his immediate family for almost 10 years.  He considers R4 as his only family, in hopes that with time he can make amends with his siblings and children. 


On April 28th I received a call from Franklin, he had survived COVID 19.  Since then, he has been released as homeless, indigent and as a COVID 19 survivor.  Franklin has a very long road ahead of him and with the side effects of COVID 19 only adding to the trials and tribulations he will encounter as a Returning Citizen.  R4 will be there to assist Franklin every step of the way, while he becomes a productive law abiding citizen!  


There is so much more to Franklin's story that he would like to share, so stay tuned!
