I am creating a program called “Reaching Out!”. Its purpose is to provide assistance to those that are in high risk situations an lifestyles with the intention of preventing victims as opposed to managing victims. 

Ask yourself this question “Is it better to prevent victims or to manage victims? If you had the choice would you rather be victimized and then helped or would you rather the perpetrator have been helped before you were victimized?”

The answer seems obvious, but upon closer examination of our justice and police investigation system the victim is not being prevented and the potential perpetrator is not being helped, which would lead to less victims. Why in the world would this be bad? At best it starts a movement of change that would drop our crime rates and victimization rates drastically and it worst it prevents a few people from being needless victims. Sounds like a win/win to me…

This is where I need your help. I need passionate people to help me plan such a thing. I can talk about this until my voice is non-existent and your ears ring, but it does no good without action. What I am looking for is action, community “buy-in”. 
My idea is worth investigating, as a man who is in prison I am telling you that had there been a program available to me that would have helped me change before I did what I did without losing everything, I would have at least looked into it. I know I am not alone.

I am talking about an organization that is peer group oriented where cognitive-based talk can begin. Many times people can help themselves if they have a forum to talk about it without shame or judgment.

I know what led me here and I can stop others before they get to this point, I cannot help everyone, but I can reach many. 

I have a plan, but I need people to dissect it with me, to point out its flaws and weak points and where additional help is needed.

I promise, it will not be a waste of your time.
