Amy Kingsley has written a wonderful re-entry success story here. When Raynard Reaves left the North Carolina prison system after 32 years behind bars, he left with a bus ticket and the clothes on his back. But he also had something less tangible, something unavailable to most of North Carolina’s prison population: A support system provided by Winston-Salem’s Project Re-entry. Now he’s a success story, a family man, and productive employee.
The man he is today is a far cry from the 19-year-old heroin addict who committed armed robbery and landed in Raleigh’s Central Prison, a maximum-security institution notorious for its tough inmate population.
Reaves’ re-entry is an example of a remarkable success story.
