Success Story: Kimberly

 

Kimberly Mays Kimberly Mays went to prison for a drug-related conviction and was released into the community with no help or support. Facing the possibility of a sentence of over 5 years, Kimberly not only made a decision to receive treatment for her addiction, but she enrolled in college subsequently earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Services and her Master's Degree at The Evergreen State College-Olympia.

As of today, she has reunited with children who were taken away from her during her imprisonment and is a supervisor for the King County Superior Court’s Parent-to-Parent Program coordinator. She is also a volunteer with the DOC's START program, helping other released prisoners change their lives.
