Toby and I have been talking a lot lately about starting a transitional housing for ex-inmates. There are so many in county with him that have had their families abandon them and once released, they have no where to go. This causes them to be more apt to returning to the prison system. We want to have it set up so they can stay until they get back on their feet. You know, hook them up with community programs to help with job searches, housing, counseling, etc. I would want to have an outreach for families with loved ones inside so that they can have support and they don't become torn apart. Toby was on 2 different boards not for profit boards so he has a little bit of an idea of how to run one, but we have no idea where to start. We are finding out that Manatee County in Florida (where he's at) is so gung ho to have people in their jails it's ridiculous. They'll throw anyone in for anything. Does anyone have any ideas as to where to start? Do you find that this is something that could help in your communities? I've been doing searches online, but I am not getting a lot of info. Thanks!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
