Securing a job, reuniting with family, and achieving independence can be difficult and intimidating after a long prison sentence. The Doe Fund eases this transition by providing "a working way home" for men who face steep barriers to employment, housing, and sobriety.
The Doe Fund's latest documentary provides an intimate look into the lives of two men who came to Ready, Willing & Able after decades of incarceration: Sean DeJesus, who is currently a trainee in Ready, Willing & Able, and Lawrence Wade, who graduated from the program in 2014 and now works at The Doe Fund.
The documentary captures Lawrence and Sean's respective journeys re-entering society—reconnecting with family, preparing for employment, and rediscovering their identities. The film incredibly depicts the unique culture of support at Ready, Willing & Able, which empowers men like Lawrence and Sean and creates a ripple effect that has changed thousands of lives.
