Natha DePue

Natha is friendly, easy-going, and recently released after serving 44 years behind bars. Natha shares their experience with abuse from a young age and how they became entangled in the criminal justice system. One day before board, Natha saw a friend on TV talking about A New Way of Life Reentry Project, which gave them hope. A New Way of Life has offered Natha a home and other reentry resources. Even with this support, Natha has difficulty finding a job and housing outside of A New Way of Life. Society has minimal resources for the formerly incarcerated and even less for formerly incarcerated senior citizens. Natha wants to get involved in advocacy and hopes to help systems-impacted youth.
