We can post the staggering statistics about the overwhelming increase of the prison population in America and how it is leading in the industry of privatized prisons.
We can post countless research articles on the continual decline of the overall conditions inside the prison, not excluding the overpopulation of inmates.
We simply choose not to. I CARE sole focus is on making solutions rather than giving power to any negative institutional performance. The problems has never been a secret; you can simply do a Google search on prison conditions in American to get a general understanding of the serious need for improvements, or check out some of the informational links we provided. Bottom-line is that we would rather focus on making a difference through positive proactive change rather than spew over the countless problems about the prison system in showing very little to no methods of improvements. We seek to cause changes; by I CARE solution.
Prison inmates making a
change for the Better.
What better way to have a true purpose in life even if you are incarcerated? Prison inmates are tapping into their God given talents and bringing joy to others through positive community work-related services. They are able to gain a secure means of finance, healthy work ethics, and accomplished pride in themselves. Prison inmates are fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, uncles, nieces, nephews, grandchildren; they are people who seek to be a benefit to themselves and their families even while incarcerated. They also seek for ways to have a major presence in making a sincere difference.

I CARE Community, Businesses and Families Initiative
I CARE connects inmates with a wholesome steady flow of resources. It is a known fact that many inmates transitioning back into society after being physically imprisoned remains within a state of mental confinement. This is largely due to the lack of employment, housing, healthcare and general support. Many community programs that had once assisted these inmates upon release have altogether declined out of existence due to nation-wide cuts in funding for outreach faith-based programs.
For this reason, I CARE values its financial support from family members, individuals, businesses, and outreach communities. Our success is attained through the support of people who sincerely care and are willing to facilitate a powerful passionate cause through generous monetary donations and resources which will assure we remain successful in providing the necessary support to prison inmates in America.
By being a part of the I CARE community and families initiative, you will be able to connect with others who also champion the cause of seeking to build a better and more productive way of life for those who are incarcerated and for those who are soon to be released. You will have a voice with State legislators on REAL prison reform; igniting change in improving the quality of life of inmates in America.
