Yolanda was incarcerated at a county jail charged with armed robbery. The turning point in our decision to accept Yolanda as a client was our visit to Yolanda’s home where we met her six children. Yolanda’s children would suffer devastating consequences if she had to serve hard time in prison.
Fortunately, GJP was able to get an alternative sentencing plan. Yolanda will not have to serve any more jail time as long as she complies with the condition of her probation— to remain in GJP’s social services program. Yolanda attended GJP’s Holiday party with her children. Today, they are back on track and doing very well!
