A MONTHLY SUPPORT GROUP
Extra! Extra! Hear All About It!
The Just Law Group launched it's first meeting! It was conducted on Friday, January 29, 2021. We covered amazing practical legal topics such as how to set aside convictions and sentences; how to reduce terms of probation and supervised release; and how to get a re-sentencing.
Members took valuable notes and asked questions. It was so amazing and uplifting we are so excited about doing it again but next time with you on board. So, be ready and, be on the lookout for the next notification about when the Just Law group will convene!! Looking forward to seeing you!

Mark Oppenheim Show Interview
This past August, three of our VSC clients were interviewed on the Mark Oppenheim show which features the work of nonprofits. Mr. Dietrich Trent, Mr. Michael Hood Bey, and Mr. Donnell Felder each spoke about the challenges of reentry following incarceration. They spoke about barriers to reentry such as housing, parole and mental health. These three men are tremendous advocates for returning citizens and we are extremely proud of them!
Humanity, compassion and empathy lead and inform our service model; every individual, no matter where our introduction occurs-- during incarceration or post-release--VSC welcomes them home without judgment.
To empower justice-involved individuals while they are incarcerated and newly-released
To create, maintain & strengthen family and community ties through innovative services that improve behavioral health, promote recovery and rehabilitation, and create opportunities for successful transition back to the community and reunification to family
We are committed to helping people regardless of their past choices, present struggles, or future obstacles — to build the capacity and courage to change their lives.
We tailor our services to each individual's unique needs, risks and strengths, and deeply believe the most effective programs are evidence-based, culturally appropriate, family-focused, and trauma -informed.
We remain committed to engaging our community by leveraging partnerships and resources to maximize our clients' opportunities for success.
