Extending guidance, discipline, instruction and compassion was the formula for 27 UHD students in the College of Public Service.
As part of a Criminal Justice Senior Seminar class, students counseled and helped individuals transition back into society following incarceration. Through lengthy and extensive training, students worked with nonprofit organizations-Angela's House (residential women's facility); WorkFaith Connections (disadvantaged job seekers); and Unlimited Visions Aftercare, Inc. (adult substance abuse program)-to help rebuild the futures of fellow Houstonians while gaining an education beyond the classroom.
It's a blessing to help others. Knowing that you can provide an answer or help someone move to a new chapter in their life is very rewarding.
