This past Monday I met with a few women whom I had taught earlier in the fall. It was their opinion that, without a doubt, the Houses of Healing Program is the most powerful program that is being offered to inmates, bar none. They felt that the material, the class discussions, and the personal writing of the program helped them peel off the layers of hurt and denial, giving them a window of understanding into the past and the tools and resilience to plan for the future. I can’t tell you how wonderful I felt to be a part of that.
