❣πŸ’ͺ🏾OUR MEN NEED EMPOWERING TOOπŸ’ͺ🏾❣

Often, focus is mainly on empowering our women & children. We forget that there would not be any women or children, without our men. It helps to give our men a thumbs-up, thank you, job well-done, do not give up, we-are-in-this-together salute. They are noticed when they are failing. How about shining a light on them when they’re doing well & show them where they maybe lacking?

An old adage is, “Those who know better, do better.” Now, someone right now just said, “Oh they know better! They are doing the opposite anyway!” Again, read that adage again. If you have Love of Self & You, have Knowledge of Self, then your mentality, behaviors, & actions will reflect that. If not? Then that also will be seen. This goes for all of us.

This forum, is for POSITIVITY & LEARNING. So let us see what we can create & build with it.

This program changes lives, both canine and human, by offering a second chance at life. 

Both groups have faced isolation and rejection by the outside world, but when they come

together, they often give each other a new found sense of hope. They become the rescuer

for one another.



The benefits to the inmate handlers are many, including:


Learning responsibility by caring for a living being.

Accountability in working towards a goal.

Experiencing the joy of unconditional love.

Gaining confidence in working toward a positive outcome.

Skills that will allow them to become law abiding, productive members of society.​

There has been a dramatic decrease in incidence of violent outbursts in prison and jail facilities where jail dog programs operate, sometimes as much as 50%. Repeated habitual crime rates have also shown drastic improvements. The Atlanta metro area has had one of the highest recidivism rates in the country, around 70% within the first two years after release. With programs like this in place, it is likely that the Atlanta metro area will begin to show a reduction in this recidivism rate.

{Maxwanette A Poetess} I have been writing poetry since the age of 5. I enjoy poetic expression and feel that, "Everyone Is A Poet." We all speak and in our speech, we express a message, that is usually attached to an emotion and or feeling. To me, this is poetry in it's natural form. I like to provide a forum to share my poetry, the poetry of others, writing resources, positive vibes & more.
