After spending almost two years in a Florida Prison before being released in 2020, JT has vowed to use her voice and platform to help other incarcerated women rehabilitate into society by assisting with resources such as therapy, job placement, social services, and housing.

Between 1980 and 2021, the number of incarcerated women increased by more than 525%, rising from a total of 26,326 in 1980 to 168,449 in 2021. While 2020 saw a substantial downsizing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this trend reversed with a 10% increase in 2021 – The Sentencing Project

There are a host of free resources available through the website. The first, Felony Record Hub. This is a site dedicated to changing the way people with felony records find work.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is also listed. This organization provides reentry resources for individuals who have been incarcerated. While reading through some of their statistics, these really struck me:

More than 40% of offenders return to state
prison within 3 years of their release.
75% of men and 83% of women returning
to state prison report using illegal drugs.

THAT’S INSANE. is honestly revolutionary when you think about it. JT pulled from here own experiences and is trying to help other people who may be experiencing the same thing.
