Heart to Heart Corresponds with members of the
LIFEPATH program at Hardee Correctional Facility
LifePath is a program that was created by inmates who had a vision of finding responsible solutions to life's challenges.
By mentoring, advocating, and networking these men saw they could make a difference in their own lives as wel as the lives of fellow offenders.
LifePath is funded solely through the donations of outside sponsors and is dedicated to creating permanent positive change, thereby helping to stabilize the environment within their prison community which will reflect by the reduction of ex-offenders reoffending.
LifePath accomplishes this task through programs designed to work on not only wrong behavior, but on the very though process that allows them to fall into the criminal life and creating victims
