Six individuals graduated from the transitional program from incarceration to fresh start on July 14. The outdoor, socially-distancing, ceremony at Exodus House-Tulsa was attended by family, friends, and even seven former graduates.
“They came to encourage and support the new graduates,” shared Site Director Estelle Turbyfill.
A snapshot of a couple success stories: Horatio (blue shirt) graduated as a resident from the Exodus House-Tulsa-Parsonage after meeting all the requirements of the program. A prior CDL driver, Horatio was even able to get his license back and has an important position now as a dump truck driver. “It took him three attempts, but he’s proud to accomplish his goal,” gleamed Turbyfill.
James (red ball cap) also graduated from the program and has secured a position in a machine shop. Originally from Missouri, James has a fresh start in Oklahoma and feels he’s free of previous addictions…thanks to the love, support, and prayers of his CJAMM family.
