Stacie works with prisoners right up to the day of their release supporting them with them having somewhere to go and something to do.
Stacie said "The grass is always greener. The clients tend to get ‘Gate Fever’ a few months before they are due for release, a mixture of excitement and anxiety thinking of the outside. They tend to feel as though everything will be ok once they are released."
But life isn't that simple, is it? A prisoner is going from being told what to do, when to do it, not having to fend for themselves, getting their meals made for them and then within a blink of an eye they usually have to jump right back into family life, worrying about money or facing addiction or not even having any family or friends to turn to.
