INNOVATIVE GRANTS from the CA Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation 

The newest “Innovative Grant” Lionheart has received from the CDCR is for The Houses of Healing Training: A Program to Prepare Lifers and Long-term Prisoners to Facilitate a High Impact Social-Emotional (Re)habilitation Program. This 3-year grant is similar to the Power Source Training that is currently in progress within two CDCR institutions. The Power Source Training prepares select lifers and long-termers to facilitate the Power Source Program with 18-24 year olds on their yard. This newest grant prepares lifers and long-termers to deliver the Houses of Healing Program to men of any age on their yard.

I am writing this quick note to let you know we are near the half-way point in the Power Source Training at CA State Prison – Mule Creek.  I am really looking forward to completing the training & beginning the Power Source classes. The emotional healing & maturity the program has helped me to experience has changed my life and the quality of my relationships so much that I can’t believe this is real at times.  But it is!  I’m excited to continue delivering the curriculum for the young offenders.  I know it will change their lives for the better in so many ways.
