Michael Hill was on the wrong path.
“I was on my way to hell, and I was enjoying the ride…”
After a stint in prison, he wanted to better himself. Through Pathway Forward, a community-based program to help men and women leaving federal prison transition back into the community, The Salvation Army provided accountability, a warm bed, and a path toward education and employment.
Hill described Pathway Forward as “a security blanket” that helped him realize he wasn’t alone.
The Pathway Forward program is a community reintegration program for individuals who are returning to the community following incarceration. The program provides an invaluable service, not only to the individuals it serves, but also to our society by reducing crime, making our communities safer and preventing recidivism and repeat offenses.
