Based on the current condition of this Nation and all the dismal projections of economists and psychologists, our hope is to implement End the Cycle programs across the United States within the next few years. With the passing of each day, we lose children, youth and adults to a vicious cycle of drugs, violence, gangs, homelessness and incarceration.
Please ...help End the Cycle now!

 

Thank You to "The Haven" in Frankfort KY and to all those who turned out a couple weeks ago. What a magnificent event. ETC Director, Mary Cathy Moore was blessed to speak at the event and reach youth and adults alike with her testimony.

"In recent years, no fewer than 17 states   supported by the Department, and led by governors and legislators of both parties   have directed funding away from prison construction and toward evidence-based programs and services, like treatment and supervision, that are designed to reduce recidivism.  In Kentucky, for example, new legislation has reserved prison beds for the most serious offenders and re-focused resources on community supervision and evidence-based alternative programs.  As a result, the state is projected to reduce its prison population by more than 3,000 over the next 10 years   saving more than $400 million...."
"The bottom line is that, while the aggressive enforcement of federal criminal statutes remains necessary, we cannot simply prosecute or incarcerate our way to becoming a safer nation.  To be effective, federal efforts must also focus on prevention and reentry.  We must never stop being tough on crime.  But we must also be smart and efficient when battling crime and the conditions and the individual choices that breed it."  ~ Eric Holder, US Attorney General (8-15-13) 

Helping end the cycle of crime, high-risk behaviors and family incarceration.
