The founder of a non-profit that seeks to help young people and inmates make a strong transition back to society raised money for the organization while in prison.

Tim Richardson created “Epidemek” in hopes of providing former felons with the support they need not to end up back behind bars. 

From Financial Juneteenth:

With so many men and women being impacted by this very serious problem, it is important that we promote the ideas of entrepreneurship, education and opportunity creation for those seeking to be reunited with their families.
