From FY 2022-2023, R4 partnered with the DC Department of Corrections to provide support to returning citizens as they were navigating reentry. Many of the returning citizens wanted to express their gratitude for the work R4 did to support them!
Read some touching testimony:
"Good morning Dr. Bell, I just want to let you know that every time I wake up and go to work I think about how appreciative I am of you and I know that God will bless you and your family. I just want to say thank you for believing in me and the guys that are still succeeding from your help. To the program and Roger and the other members of the program I send my love everyday."
- T. Cavallero
"I would like to take the time to let you know how grateful I am to be a part of a Program that has literally changed my life. I was incarcerated for 19 years and had very little hope that I would be able to get out and have a meaningful life. I received a phone call from Dr. Bell. I could not believe that someone was going to give me another chance at life. Dr. Bell is always there for any of us when we need her. I would have never thought someone who wears so many hats would be so involved in ex-con’s day to day lives. Dr. Bell, her staff and the Program is one of a kind and I will always be thankful for them giving me another chance at life."
- A. Brown
"Dr. Bell and the Program took a chance on me, motivated and encouraged me every step of the way, I feel alive again. I feel hope and without the help of this Program, I don’t think it could have happened this soon after being released from Prison. I will FOREVER be grateful for the Program!"
