Welcome Home Fund for Mike

Mike is coming home to Brooklyn after being incarcerated for seventeen years. An honorably discharged Marine veteran, Mike has received an associates degree while in prison, where he started a college tutoring programs, leads a veterans' group, and works multiple jobs. While Mike has saved what he can from working while incarcerated, in New York state, incarcerated people are paid $0.10 to $0.33 per hour. Please donate anything you can to help Mike land on his feet when he comes home this month. The expenses will go to his housing, food, transportation, and other necessities. Everything helps!

(The photo of Mike is from a few decades ago, but we are excited to have the chance to take more photos when he gets out.)
