Formerly incarcerated Fund

Hi, My name is Ky Peterson and most people have heard my story of being incarcerated for defending myself against a homophobic attacker. But if you have not heard of me or my story you could Google my name or just go to my web page at freedomoverground.org and see for yourself. Now, the reason I have decided to make this gofundme page is because I have been home for a little over a year and it has been a hard road butI have managed to get myself together as best I could under these current circumstances. The reason I made this page is to help those people who are just coming home from prison get the things that they may need to just survive. I know from experience that a lot of people coming home from the prison system are just thrown out with nothing and no one to help guide them down the right path. I was blessed when I came home because a friend of mine set u a page for me and I was able to get all of the things I needed but it still wasn't enough to sustain me and my everyday needs but it was a great start. And I just would like to say thank you to all of the people who did donate and or share the fundraiser. As of right now, I have been working for 3 weeks doing yard work, small home repairs, painting, assembling appliances using an app on my phone. So, that was just the update on me and my current situation. Also, i have been raising money to buy some essentials for those coming home such as prepaid cell phone, backpack, work boots, journal, pens, $100 gift card, and information on how to obtain health insurance, license, id, and other important documents that they will need. I don't make much money with the side jobs that I do to fully fund each person coming home that is why I am asking for help. So, if you are reading this and are able to donate I ask that you would please do so. Anything will help and would be very much appreciated. Thank yu so much for your time. Stay safe and be blessed.
