Here’s the truth. You may not make it back to what your normal was, but you will create a new normal. This new normal has the potential to change the world around us. We have the ability to reclaim our story and write an ending that we are proud of. Nothing in our pasts can stop us from dreaming big. Nothing in our pasts can stop us from being a game changer in this world.
Your story has power. Power of change. Power of hope. Power of life. All of us when life does not go according to plan be it when you go to prison, fight an addiction, become a victim of crime, go through a divorce, lose a loved one, lose your job, become homeless, or wherever your story has led you – your story is not over… it’s just beginning. One Story. Endless Possibilities.
Power of hope.
Power of life.
A Note From Our Founder
Continue the Story is truly one of those doors that opened as another shut on my face. I know what it’s like to make mistakes so big that you lose everything and hurt many people as a result. To be honest, I never thought about the people who were in prison. I never had a reason to.
However, that all changed when I found myself sitting behind bars after a mistake that has now defined my entire life. It was in that experience, that I saw good people who were simply lost and hurting. They were not monsters and neither was I. However, media today tells us that people in prison deserve to be there and that they are these terrible human beings. I remember seeing these “tough” guys wipe away the tears as they kissed a picture of their baby girl goodnight and a thought entered my mind that I could not get rid of. How many families are broken because of the prison system?
It was in that moment, that Continue the Story was first planted. I wanted to find creative ways to build stronger families that were impacted by the prison system. I wanted to find unique ways of helping prisoners transition into their new lives and have all the resources they need to continue their story. No matter our past, we have the ability to write a future that can change the world.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of all the hurt I have caused, but I cannot change the past, but I can change my future. My story and your story are not over… they are just beginning!
