From Detention to Prevention, Inc. was a vision that got its start in the classroom at the Fort Myers Detention Center while speaking with the children. As the organization became a 501c3 non-profit corporation, the desire to help these at-risk kids to become a positive influence in the community and to keep them out of prison was my passion.
Asking for volunteers from the attendees, three came forward and we took their negative histories of how they came to the facility, put them into music and rapped their stories for the Juvenile Justice Council at the Lee County Court House. The smiles on their faces as the audience clapped for THEM told me that here was a definite need and I am the one to get it started right here in Fort Myers, Florida.
And so I did!
