Journey House Gives Female Ex-Cons A Fresh Start

It’s tough starting a new life after being in prison. Although there are many programs to help, a lot of them focus on male ex-cons but don’t do much for women making the transition. Journey House in Kansas City, Missouri, is giving these women — who have nowhere else to go — a place to belong and a fresh start.

Guests:

  • Sister Rose McLarney lives and works at Journey House.
  • Sandra Lightell is a participant in the Journey House program.
  • Sher Bialczyk is a participant in the Journey House program.
