WELCOME TO VICTIMS & OFFENDERS RECOVERY Community COLLEGE

SCOPE

Our scope is to have a positive impact o n crime victims and offenders. To bring restoration and positive changes to families and communities through our services. We are committed to healing emotional grief and trauma; eliminating the need to commit crimes through support, treatment, education, advocacy and activism. To bring peace and harmony throughout our community this will help offenders not to re-offend, as well as their victims finding peace within their self. We are addressing the drug abuse, violence, emotional pain, and lack of trust in our community. I want to do my part by helping and showing the young adults that there is always another way. Participation in this program will be a positive uplifting experience for the youth to teach them how to have a lifelong positive goals and objectives for a successful future by empowering the young adults on healthier life styles by education/workshops, through emotional, spiritual, mental and physical healing. To let them know that there is a tomorrow. The goal is to de-program and to re-program the young adults ways of thinking, by allowing them to make conscious decisions and to be held accountable for their actions, in a positive way instead of going about it and reacting in a negative way to uniform peace ambassadors to uphold our community.

Memorial For Victims - Redemption For Offenders

My mind plays tricks on me, With sinful thoughts and doubts of my faith Can I cry out, help me Jesus before it's too late. Not knowing if I'm wrong or Right, Can I still hold onto God with all my might? I stumble into a world of unworthiness covering up my pain, No one to understand me, No one to feel my shame Mind starts traveling into high gear Carrying all my anxiety, depression and fear, I am the lost sheep feeling locked out of the gate Why did I get so impatient, why didn't I wait. My humble state of mind cries out help me Jesus It's so dark I can't see A voice in a short distance whispers back Don't worry I'm here with thee. Just close your weary eyes and you will see It's not me running off leaving you It's you leaving me. I am the good Shepard and you know my voice Remember my child you do have a choice. You may call it a second chance But I call it my love, mercy, and grace Not one human being in this world has taken my place. Believe me when I say forgiveness is a very hard thing to do But forgiveness is much harder when you can't even forgive you.

OUR TEAM

James Bolden – Director

My  Story The feelings of loss is expressed in many ways, anger, resentment, guilt, depression, revenge, confusion, loneliness, pain, feeling defeated, denial, regret, the list goes on.  Add in your feelings.  We deal with these emotions and make life style changes, some good and some bad.  Sometimes we become offenders and hurt others and the cycle repeats itself or we can become ministers of peace, helping victims and perpetrators heal therefore ending the cycles!  Lets spread trust, forgiveness, repentance and love. Rest in Peace James Sr. (Father), Clover Dell ( Mother), Delois (Sister), and Vincent (Brother). Dear God I pray: Have mercy upon me O God, according to thy loving kindness according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.  Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my for I acknowledge my transgressions and my sin is ever before me.  Amen Psalm 51: 1-3

Everyone goes through the rain. The wind blows you from right to left. But it’s how you choose to direct yourself. With  our Father up above we can handle all things. With our hearts open and our hand up high. We can succeed through the rain and all pain. As I was growing up I had a hard time I was a loner, I felt older than my age, in school it was so very difficult learning did not come easy for me reading, writing, spelling and comprehension was difficult. I suffered with ADHD, depression, social delay, dyslexic, I had a IEP and I was in special classes. My brain was always in a fog the people who new about my problem didn’t help and as I got older the new people in my life I would hide my issues from them because I was embarrassed or I knew they would see me differently. My grandmother told me to pray I didn’t understand why or what that would do at the time but it helped. It made me feel like I was not alone that someone was there listening to me. Who I was then and what I went through at a young age made me who I am today, I am someone who is understanding, who is caring, who loves, who is at peace and someone who wants to help others. Growing up I wanted to be a doctor or a social worker but life got in the way so I struggled to find my way, who I was, what was my purpose in life. This voice came over me and told me to help and so that is what I did I work in a group home, I’m a PCA worker I was a Advocate for the homeless and now I work for V.O.R.C  This company is for victims and offenders we strive to help those in need of housing, guidance, and the teaching of peace be still. This program is amazing with what we do now and what we will strive to do in the future. The sun will always shine. Your life is what you make of it. The people in your life are who you see fit to be in your life. Many thing might try to block your sun light. With faith, love and understanding. Your light will always shine so bright.
