“And that’s scary, because when you look at it, we already took one parent out of the household in the community. That’s an income, that’s guardianship over the children and so forth,” he explained.
So, he’s working to create a home for them in town, too, for when they’re done serving their sentence.
“I’m not gonna speak on it just yet, but we do have an idea of where we want to create the campus for the women, as well,” he said.
Ultimately, they’d have four homes for men and four homes for women, housing up to 4 people each. The goal is to house up to 32 people at a time.
“You know, I feel like I took so much in my former life. So you know, to be able to be giving back and helping others get on their feet. It’s something I always dreamed of doing,” he added.
If you’d like to support their efforts, El-Alamin said volunteers and financial donations are always welcome.
They’re hoping to create new jobs within the organization to keep up with their growth.
