While serving her second conviction, Michelle Perkins realized she was ready to choose a different life. She asked to be placed in a treatment facility which sent her down a road of sober living. She reentered society determined to work on herself and build upon the education she received in prison. Michelle wanted to do everything in her power to save as many people as possible from a life of drug and alcohol abuse. Now, Michelle has started a reentry service of her own called Turning Points Women’s Reentry Program where she provides every resident with access to resources that assists and prepares them for a functional life after incarceration. Now she can use her experiences to empower the lives of women coming home from prison, a vow she made to herself when she was released.
