Path of Freedom in Barnstable County
Updated: May 26, 2020
We love hearing from the folks that continue to donate their time and energy to running the Path of Freedom classes and appreciate all they are doing to create change in their communities. The training the Path of Freedom program provides would be all but lost if not for their tireless efforts and dedication.
One of or Massachusetts Path of Freedom Volunteer facilitators, Buck, recently sent us an update on how the class he facilitates in the Barnstable County Correctional Facility is going:
The two groups in Barnstable ebb and flow, but it never ceases to amaze me, the few that seem to “get it,” is plenty enough to keep me going. Currently there is a great group of guys, they really seem to want it. Kristen [another volunteer facilitator from RI] has been joining me when she can, which is such a huge help, having someone to share the load. Believe it or not, some weeks she comes to the class from her home in CT! Google says it’s 108 miles each way!March 27th was the 2nd anniversary of our first class in Barnstable. There’s a post-release group in Hyannis, I’d like to start a class there also. Then there’s the Plymouth County jail, and the Bristol County jail – I could do this 5 days a week if I could afford it.
As you can see by Buck’s letter, we are quite fortunate to have his generous spirit carrying out this transformational work and we’re quite certain the many prisoners he has helped are even more appreciative than we are.
