Hope through Lived Experience
“While I was in an assistant prison chaplain said to me ‘Stan, I want you to give some thought to what would be needed when men are coming out of jail, like a half-way house. I have a couple of barrister friends who have noticed firsthand the lack of support of anyone after release.’ This was late 1982.
So, I set to work and thought hard, and I decided to make an exercise of it.” – Stan McCormack
