Better Than I Found It
We had the wonderful opportunity to become involved with Hope for Prisoners earlier this year. This program not only changes the lives of the people that are in their program, but also changes the lives of others they touch, including the businesses that employ their graduates. We have truly been blessed to become part of the Hope for Prisoners Family and last week we were at the filming of a brand new show airing in 2020 called Danny Gokey’s “Better Than I Found It” The show tells the stories of people all over the country who are leaving the world better than they found it, like Jon Ponder and Hope for Prisoners. This particular episode was filmed at Southern Desert Correctional facility where Hope for Prisoners and the construction industry are putting together what will be called The Vocational Village. The Vocational Village will be a game changer in Nevada. It will not only be a 12 month training for the incarcerated, but I truly believe, because of all that are involved like CSN, will be the beginning of skilled labor training in a big way for Southern Nevada. Civil Werx and partners like Coastline Equipment and Cashman Equipment provided equipment for the shooting.
