SAFE came long at a very critical time in my life. I found myself sitting in jail looking at 20-50 years, I had no hope, and my outlook was very bleak. I had lost everything, my children, my home, belongings, and some family members had a very low opinion of me and my life style. I was arrested in August 2008 with 5 felonies, 3 of them being A felonies for dealing. In January of 2009, I went to my first SAFE class and found a place of peace.
