$360 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 39 months
For the past two years, I have been working toward my goal of opening a Transitional home for women released from prison. Well, I'm getting closer to my dream of giving back and I need your help!
I am raising start-up capital for the purpose of:  
Making a down payment on a Fourplex Unit ( four separate living spaces) and purchasing all household essentials.

Annette's Behind Me: Transitional Living will provide housing, substance abuse aware, case management and family uninification.

Alot has changed since I last updated you. I am still working hard to open the ABMTransitional Living in Travis County for women released from prison. What I've learned in this process is that I need to be up and running before anyone will give me the first glance at funding. Sooo, I am happy to announce that I am now a Board member of Truth-Be-Told and Fellow for Austin/Travis County Reentry Roundtable. These are the start of connections needed to provide other services for the women. I did my very first NPR with KUT regarding the affects of housing in Austin, Texas, which aired October 5, 2017. Some of you may or may not know how hard it is for a person with lived experience (a crimiminal background) to obtain housing and employment. This is why it is so important to open ABMTransitional Living, to provide a stable place for the women to call home while regaining stability. Please help me provide the women with an opportunity live life differently.

Thank you!

For the last several months, I have been putting in foot work as a criminal justice advocate. In order to make a difference in someone's life, it was important for me to become an advocate. I am the fellow for Austin/ Travis County Reentry Roundtable, a member of Reentry Advocacy Project (RAP) and member of the Texas Advocates for Justice. I've advocated alongside many other Criminal Justice Involved individuals in Austin Texas to uphold Fair Chance Hiring.
Help support Annette's Behind Me: Transitional Living by donating funds to purchase/lease a home, purchase furniture and the necessities to make it a home for 6-8 women released from prison or jail. My website is ww.w.abmtransitional.org. All monetary gifts are welcomed.

Under the direction of Conspire Theatre and an amazing Director from Australia, 5 amazing, talented women shared our journey of incarceration at Sparky Park!! Dialogue was shared at two Sold Out shows that opened the audience eyes to the treatment we endured while incarcerated. Hats off to these women for their strength, courage and vulnerability !!

Come join my journey Saturday May 14th 9-12p.

My journey from prison to reality has not been an easy one. After serving 20 years in an Illinois prison, I was granted an early release from parole in 2005. I considered myself to be one of the few that made a once in a lifetime horrible mistake and wanted to put the past behind me. Today, I am an Activist for Reentry, intake assessment for indigent individuals facing jail time for fines and business Owner. Through God All things are possible!
